I usually really hate it when M starts going to the field, because I generally end up sitting around by myself a lot, and other people end up being busy. (A lot of my close-by friends have 2-3 kids, school projects, etc.) It's lonely. Most of my friends live about 30 miles away from various directions and we don't generally meet up during the week.
I would go down to the "big W" (bigger town near by where M farms), but M always has to leave immediately after work, and I can't always get away right away, so I can't ride with him. It doesn't make sense to drive there by myself, being 30 miles away.
Well, tonight I have to leave early, so I'm going with him, then taking the car to meet up with a girlfriend down there to walk around the lake, then get supper with her and another friend, then watch Grey's.
I really really miss having friends around to do stuff like that regularly!
