So I just moved to--well, not the country, more like a conservative rural city in southeast Colorado. I am going out of my CRAZY liberal mind here. There is literally nothing to do! I live 30 feet from my in-laws, my "backyard" is full of my FIL's junk (3 non-working tractors, a rusted out dump truck, a giant stack of scrap metal), my DH cut the fence separating our properties so it's one big lot, and my in-laws keep stopping by unannouced. Then, my MIL starts criticizing my housework. Tell me you're coming over and I'll pick my dirty clothes off the floor! I feel like a prisoner in my house because whenever I go outside, my FIL follows me around, asking what I'm up to. It's my yard!!!!! I know I'm probably being too sensitive, but I'm a private person by nature. I garden alone because that's how I meditate. I also need some advice on how to meet people. I don't know anyone else here, and I've checked the newspaper, bullitan boards, everything I can think of to find a club to join. Everything seems to be geared for the over 55 crowd, and I'm only 37. My health is not great, so I'm not able to work, but I want to do something! I'm so lonely...Thank goodness I have my lovely chickens. Anyone need a penpal?
