    Look into a horror movie Meet up.

    Stop making excuses. These are not reasons to keep someone like this in your life.

    Well you can look at it as her being more of an acquaintance, rather than a "friend". Just change some of the expectations that come with a true friendship to "we just hang out". Is that where you kinda want to go with this?

    Not really. By the time all the kids are gone from my house at 5:30 in the evening . They enter my house at 6:30 in the morning . Basically I eat clean up and go to bed . On the weekends I am deep cleaning the playroom ,buying groceries for the daycare ,spending some time with my husband ,singing at church and being at Mass. I am also president of our local Catholic Womenís League. Plus my husband and I have ageing and frail parents . At this point Iím so busy I barely have time to breathe.

    Do you have any free time to do new activities to meet people?

    I have friends there. They are also 80 and would drop dead if I asked them to a horror movie.

    The town I live in is a lot of military retirees over 70 and very young families . And unfortunately one of the highest teen mother rates in the whole country .
