This is so true! When I had Drew. Rick had just started a new job and couldn't take any time off from work. One friend came over everyday for the first two weeks to ehlp me out and give me time to sleep. W

hen Ally was born (dead of winter), one friend came over every morning to walk Drew to the bus stop so I wouldn't have to let him go by himself or leave the baby (Ally) while I walked him. She left work early every day to pick him and walk him home, then went back to work.

In both cases, friends brought over enough food to get us thru the first few weeks without me having to cook much.

When I had my dental surgery, Rick couldn't take any time off, so I was in the hospital by myself and Ally was less than 1 year old. My friend Tisha took a week off from work, cared for Ally everyday, got Drew off to school adn picked him up everyday, brought the kids up to see me 2 or 3 times a day, cooked for Rick and stayed with me at night so Rick could spend time with the kids.

THAT'S what Texas friends are like!

I miss Texas. WV is a terrible place to make friends. I have lived here for 12 years and don't have any friends. I am so ready to move back to the Southwest!

I lived in SA for four years. We did talk about moving to Houston, but settled on NM.
