"Hi, what's your name?"
"Are you new?"
"Yeah, we just moved in"
"Oh, that's great."
"Where did you move from?"
"10 minutes north"
small talk, small talk, small talk...
and repeat 30 times for the next 4 sundays.
I think instead I should have walked into my new ward 4 weeks ago and when asked my name reply and hand out my friendship request form:
a normal, fun friend
doesn't matter. i'm 32, but I don't discriminate against age. I have good younger and older friends.
not too much..just someone who has a sweet, happy disposition, definitely sarcastic, not too needy, and listens to my crazy ideas patiently, . i love energetic moms or moms to be. i love creating, do you? (this is optional, but it could make it really fun!) i have 3 energy filled kids and my life can be chaos, but i love them to pieces, and you have to too! we don't need to hang out too much, but lets get together to talk during the day sometimes, so we can have some NORMAL conversation. I love to play ball...organized or not. I'd even take a pickup game one night a week at church... Do you like to run? maybe at 5 am, train for a triathlon, etc.... I can tell you about many amazing women I know..friends I miss so much that it hurts. Do I sound too needy. Maybe I am. Okay scratch the above.
The difficulty with this situation now is that I was just put in as a nursery leader, so it takes away the socializing in sunday school and relief society away. It seems like every time we move I go through this period of adjustment. YUCK! Any advice on making it go smoother? Really, I'm listening.
