Do I have a boring life?

A friend of mine was talking to me about coming to visit. To visit me, that is. That's cool, it would be great, I haven't seen her in person in years. But, then she asked "So, what is there for me to do there?"

::blink, blink::

Say what? How do I answer that? My friend is recently single again, but even when she was in a relationship, she normally went out in at night, went clubbing, spent time at bars...that's in contrast to me, who hasn't been in a bar in (let's see, it had to be before Little J was born) over 3 years, hates the smell of cigarettes, and, at this point in my pregnancy, is exhausted by 6pm. Even when we were in college, I would just as rather spend the evening with a good book as go out to a party.

I don't do anything! I don't go to concerts anymore, it's expensive to take the whole family out to a restaurant, I'm exhausted half the time....my idea of a fun trip is to go to a fiber fest. (oh, and in case you're not busy Saturday - Southern Indiana FiberArts Festival ) Or the library (Not the bookstore. How much browsing can YOU do with a two year old shrieking happily and running amok within the bookshelves?).

i need a life.

I'll take her to the local yarn stores. She crochets. Yep. That'll work. ;)

It probably doesn't help your situation that there isn't much more than corn in Indiana (and Indiana Beach isn't all that great if you're older than 11). At least it's October; maybe you could try a haunted house or something.
