Where do you make real-world friends?
I am a stay at home mom working on my Master's degree. I need more friends (real-world friends...no offense woot! world but you can't drink with me on Saturday nights!). Where do I meet them? My daughter is a year and eight months, but I'm not sure of any play groups, etc in the area, and I feel weird chatting up people at the mall or grocery store. Can't say we really go anywhere else. There's a pool for our townhouse community, and we're there about daily, but most of the parents are poolside and I'm splashing with a toddler, so it's hard to strike up conversations. Help! I need adults with which I can have real conversations...I love my daughter, but I can only take talking about doll clothes, Caillou, and nuggets for a limited amount of time.
Thanks, non-real-world friends :)
