So we jammed last week, but got brave and went to our new ward for church this week. I've been telling myself that it will be a new adventure and we'll make new friends, and it will be fun. I'm optimistic that way!
Who was I kidding?
It took me a long time to feel comfortable where we were. I'm basically pretty shy, and uncomfortable around new people. It takes me a long time to get to know anyone usually. I have friends who are amazingly friendly and outgoing. I am not. Today was just a blinding reminder of that. There were a couple of familiar faces, people that a knew about a million years ago, or vaguely familiar. Luckily my sister was at my side. She's a great wingman!
There's still that kid inside me who feels like the gawky new kid at school. You'd think there was a time limit on that. Nope. I missed my friends and familiar faces.
I like to think that I'm a fairly good adapter. I like to make the best of things and not get all freaked out. The past few weeks have been tougher than I expected. A lot of change.
The kids faired way better than I did today. They both played happily in the new nursery and The Bee didn't even have a meltdown. He even did some excellent coloring on a page titled "Why I'm Thankful For My Ears". It's up on the fridge.
