It stands to reason I guess that the vast majority of the conversations I participate in tend to have children as the central topic most of the time.
I love kids I really do. However I am beginning to find myself wishing more and more often for a few activities and conversations that have nothing to do with children. In a word I guess I am interested in more moderation and less saturation.
That is tough to do in my current situation.
Today I did have some success and I was ridiculously giddy about it afterwards.
I had lunch with a good friend and we were able to discuss things like religion, politics, important issues and other stuff.
It was very refreshing. I was so glad that I felt that I actually had something to offer to the conversation, as I feel horribly out of practice discussing such adult matters.
I was so excited that I could hardly wait for my husband to get home so I could tell him all about it!
I came away with a few things today:
- I need to get out more
- I need to stop just saying I need to get out more
- I might want to pick up a magazine/newspaper/blog that deals with grownup stuff every now and again.
There may be hope for me yet!
