Nice To Meet You! I Don't Always Look Like This, I Swear.

Surely I'm not the only stay at home mom who is shuffling around the house sans make-up or concealer in yoga pants and a ratty t-shirt sporting 3 day old greasy hair at 10am, right? Apparently, I'm in the minority. This morning at 10am I got my first visit from a mom in the neighborhood. And damned if she isn't cute and perky - hair all brushed, make-up on, and miraculously had zero peanut butter on her shirt.

Doesn't that go against the laws of parenthood or something?

I should have just taken the cookies and said thanks, we'll get together soon because the house was. a. wreck. and I'm pretty sure there was a bad smell but I'm not positive because you know how you can't smell your own house? Anyway, I was blinded by the joyous anticipation of adult conversation so I ushered them right in. Oh well, she might as well be exposed to the ugly truth right up front. She didn't curl up her lips in disgust or whip out any hand sanitizer and we exchanged phone numbers so that's a good sign.

You don't think it was a fake number do you? I should try it.

Either way, she was nice and normal and that could mean that I might actually find people to be friends with here. Maybe we will get together again soon.

You know she only fixed herself up for the visit. Next time you see her she will be all normal..

How nice! Our neighbors to the right seem nice enough but the lady to the right refuses to say hi. No one has brought me cookies and we are approaching 2 months! What I am doing wrong?

Oh heck no...you're not the only one. I'm in yoga pants...a green wife beater....and barefoot. Bandana on my head....NO makeup...haven't even washed my face or brushed my teeth today. It's 8:30 P.M...so I probably won't get to it. lol

Oh well.

I think it's cool that you met someone new despite not being all "put together" LOL

YAY

Ha! Hope it works out for you! I once had a neighbor lady in my new neighborhood come over to tell me that she is not the "visiting kind" & won't be over again!
At least your new friend didn't bring any little orange flags with her!

I should have taken a picture of myself today, its as if you and I were in the same mirror.

I always say I'll never be one of those perky, well dressed, hair brushed moms... but yes, at times I do envy them.

Are you SURE she has kids? Just sayin!

LOL. I am not even a Mom and that could have been me. I have even, and this is bad, pretended I wasn't home when strangers have come to the door. I really have. I had a neighbor come over once and I didn't answer the door. LOL. She later told me she came over to ask to borrow some cumin.

I bet she dolled herself up just for the visit... the lack of peanut butter is a dead giveaway of purposeful dress-up... When she was searching through her purse for a pen to write down her number, did an orange flag fall out? Beware... it might be a setup...

hehe

Ok, the girl I am this week, says, beware, beware, its a setup, shes looking for Lexi's shit in the yard and she carries lil orange flags. LOL But the positive girl that I'm not this week, says, Awesome, maybe just maybe their are some sane people up there in the frozen windy tundra. Here's to keeping my fingers crossed. Oh, you prolly don't want me to do that, as you know my wonderful luck these days. I just uncrossed them, my dear.

Hey, I had the obligatory religious visitors yesterday, and as it was my child free day, I had on pink socks and sandals the the rest wasn't much better. And they were dolled up!!! So I am here with you on this one!

She totally fixed herself up for the visit, I mean - seriously! She wanted to look cute and perky and it's absolutely against the laws of nature! After all, I'm lucky if I get to brush my hair most days, and PJ's is about the only mommyhoodrobe I have!
