I got to know so many women from Ryan's old ship and I think eventually shore duty tore those friendships apart. Some moved, most hit shore duty. Recently the last friend I had from that ship got mad at me for saying I was annoyed by the barrage of elf on the shelf posts and pictures and deleted me.
I hope to become friends with some new Navy wives. All who have husbands on shore. We are having one family over this Saturday, one next Saturday and in a few weeks we will be getting together at another's house.
I guess part of not really being what I consider friends with people (hanging out and doing more than occasional texting) is that I don't know what an adult friendship is like. I always assumed we would be the people who hosted dinner parties with couple friends and their kids and it hasn't really been that way yet.
I just hope that the future is as bright as my eyes are. I really like these ladies and I hope wonderful friendships will blossom!
