Sometimes I really think I was born in the wrong time period. I would be totally comfy as one of those fabulous 1950’s housewives, I really would! But then I start thinking and I realize I would probably miss all my technology. And I certainly wouldn’t be able to have this blog!
Things that made me think this way: new neighbors. We had met three of our new neighbors, and had waved to several others, but that was about it. We were pretty close to our neighbors at our other place, and we’re the type of people who just like to know our neighbors. We figure, if you’ve got to leave near people, you might as well have a good relationship with them, right?
Yes, I am TOTALLY the woman who is going to bake you a pie and introduce herself to you when you move into the neighborhood. (I’m actually planning on that right now, as there are new folks moving in catty-cornered from us now.) But I wasn’t sure if it would work the other way around or not.
“Hi, we’re the people who just moved in. Nice to meet you. Please have some cookies on us.”
So I went on Pinterest. (Surprise surprise, right?)
