Sometimes, I think it's because I'm lazy. Other times, I think it's because I'm really busy. But honestly, I'm not sure what it is. Why can I not make time for my friends?
Nathan and I leave for work around 7:00 every morning (because I have this tendency to hit every.single.red.light.). We get home between 5:00 and 6:00, depending on my meeting schedule. That should leave me plenty of time to have dinner with my family, perhaps take Nathan to the park, give the kid a bath, put him down for the night, and at the very least, make phone calls. But, nah... not really. And the people who want me to do things on the weekends? Well, that would be all fine and good if I didn't just want to hang out with my family.
This summer, I think The Targo and I are going to try to get out there more! We want to see our friends, do more fun Chicago stuff, and get out of this cocoon that we've been in for the past fifteen months. I would love to hear what you new-ish parents have done? We miss our friends, and miss our city. We both think it's worth making time for both of them. We think too, that Nathan will enjoy it.
