Don't get me wrong, I really like you all! I am just not a big crowd person. Here is the deal. Most people think that I am nuts for thinking this way, maybe they are right! My DH works with his best friend (L). We have tried to socialize with L and his wife, K. She is a very lovely person. She is a great Mom, and she even has chickens! I know! It sounds like it would be an easy thing! Its not. I feel so uncomfortable around her. She is so hard to talk to. I say something, anything! She just looks at me like I am not speaking. People that know her say she is just shy and she will warm up. It has been a year! We have had many uncomfortable events! We just sit and listen to our DHs talk! Well they are having a game party tonight. It is a dice game that I have never heard of. Everyone there gets together often and plays this. We will be the strange new people. My DH does not like being around people he doesn't know either. The hosts are the only ones we will know. However DH feels obligated because this man is his best friend. This party is over an hour away which means one of us can't drink. Don't get me wrong, I am not a huge drinker but a glass of wine or 2 might make this event a little easier! I am really dreading it and I feel kind of silly about it. My MIL said that I will prob end up having a good time. I hope she is right. Oh! I feel a headache coming on! WHAT is WRONG with me!!!!!!!!! Thanks for letting me vent!
