One of my New Year’s resolutions is to spend more time with my friends. I will admit that I hardly ever see my NYC friends. I live and work in NJ, about forty-minutes out of the city. As a single mom, it’s hard to find time to hang in NYC with my friends because it means securing a babysitter for several hours, usually driving in (because in case of an emergency with JD, I don’t want to be stuck waiting for a bus) and of course, not really drinking because I have to drive home, alone. My NYC friends have their careers, friends and boyfriends in NYC, so I understand why they can’t just drop everything and come to NJ to see me, too. It’s a sucky situation and I hope that I can reconnect with the girls who saw me through my pregnancy back in 2007. It's funny, because I don't really miss living in NYC, but I do miss my friends and drinking wine around little tables in cafes in Nolita. To kick off my resolution of spending more time with friends, I invited a few over last night.
