Oh, gosh, I'm not hoping for a perfect time!
I was just trying not to get knocked up while DH was having a kidney transplant + complications. And now I'm the only income (plus health insurance), so if anything happened with the pregnancy that kept me from working, we would be you-know-where without a you-know-what (answers: creek, paddle).
I'm still going to spend time with my friends! Some of us went to Webs last Saturday, which is a 2 hr drive each way. We had lunch in Northampton then spent hours in the store. I'm just not naturally a big group person, and it seems silly to purposely spend time with people you like under circumstances that are excruciating.
I might look for a real knitting group, but I just realized that my evenings and weekends are pretty tight for a while. I might hoard my knitting time to myself
Thanks for all your advice, understanding and commiseration
