It's friday again. Unexpectedly, this week went by rather quickly. I'm assuming that it was because I've been uber busy with Scarlett all week long. Lately, I look at Scarlett and think, "Little girl, you have the life." We do a lot together. Library Meet ups, Play groups, pool days and park meets. I love doing things with her and seeing her develop into such a wonderful little girl. She's getting so smart. So big. So funny! There's not a day that goes by that she doesn't humor me.
We have been hanging out for just over a week and we have been having so much fun! Her daughter and Scarlett love playing together. I am so happy that I met this girl! It's refreshing to have someone to hang out with. Yesterday, we went to Peter, Paul and George Family Dance that they had in the downtown park. They sang and played music while all the babies bopped around and listened to the songs. We laid our blankets out and relaxed with the babies. After, a couple of the girls and I walked around and did some shopping for the littles. We paused for lunch at an outdoor Cafe while the babes napped. It was, in deed, a really fun day.
I have been here for almost a year now. It seems like just yesterday that we found out we were up and moving to New York with 3 weeks notice. But it has taken me this long to finally start to meet people. It didn't help that we moved here when winter was creeping up and people were starting to hibernate. But my point is, it is really hard to start over. Finding where stores and restaurants are. Getting around places. Learning the roads here. Making friends and meeting new people. It's like your whole life is a chalkboard. It's wiped clean and you have to start filling it back up again. I never thought it would be such a challenge. I love it here in New York!! But the fact that I have someone to talk with now, and people to go places with, makes it that much better!! I feel like I was supposed to meet this girl. Like we both needed someone and then, just like that...our paths crossed. I'm glad that we have the chance to get to know each other and let our little girls play. I'm happy that both Scarlett & I have met new friends.
We are leaving, yet again, this weekend for a friend's wedding near Boston.
I feel like we live in hotels this month.
But I'm pretty excited that when we return on Sunday, we will be bringing with us,
friends from Mass to help ring in my birthday this Monday....
But that's a whole other post all together ;)
