Lonely Fall

i wish i had some friends here. I’m not ungrateful, not by a long shot. I’m just very lonely. I want people around to do “stuff” with. Fall is here, the leaves are changing, the weather is cooling off, and the sweaters are out… it makes me want to be around my friends and my family. I want to go apple picking, and pumpkin carving. I want to go window shopping and sip coffee downtown.  I want to make stew and eat warm rolls.
 My husband wants… to watch football. I never really took into account how different things would be for us if we moved. While in Denver I had school to keep me busy, I was lonely but my time was filled with studying. In Danville, I had work and my friends.  Here I have time to miss the things I want to do.
This time of year makes me want to be a kid again too. I remember looking forward to Halloween costumes, piles of leaves, and helping mom get out all the decorations. I miss those things.
I’m lucky, I know. It looks silly typed up here, whining about how sad I am. I think I’ll just blame the weather.
