Microblog Monday (On Tuesday)
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is?Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
Being Social. Being Social. It is not my thing usually. Which is not to say I do not want to spend time with people. Or that there are times when I lament feeling lonely. Or that there are times when I have great times with my friends.
But. Being Social for the sake of doing so--because our son needs help dealing with social situations. Because our daughter needs to have play dates with other kids her age. Because we are expected to be there.
I love new experiences, do not really love meeting new people--although I have been pushing myself and my family to be more social.
It was successful this weekend. We met with new people, and Michael found someone he "clicked" with - so much so that we met with them again on Monday. We met up with some not-so-new friends that we have started really enjoying hanging out with and that was fun! We went to a BBQ on Sunday.
That was what this long weekend was about. Being Social. And it was exhausting!!
I need a break from being social now...the introvert in me needs to just be on the couch and read.
