Do you remember being that one girl who either had a bra before others did, or DIDN'T have a bra when others did? And do you remember wishing you could hurry up and be like the rest of them (or in my case, wish you could slow down to meet them)? That's how I feel right now.

I have friends buying homes, having children, and settling down. I wish they could all just slow down and be like us! Still trying to conceive, I want to tell my pregnant friend over there, hold in that baby for a few more months so I can catch up to you! My friends who are buying homes- Wait until I can find a cheap house around here, since there's no way we're leaving Southern California, I want to go through this with you!

Perhaps it's because of my lack of girl friends, that I wish the few I had would progress right along with me. I'm being selfish again, aren't I? When we were getting married, I longed for any friends who were doing the same. Now we're the only married couple amongst our friends, and since a baby is now hopefully next on our list, I'm going to be alone with that as well. Don't get me wrong, I'm super grateful for the family and friends who have gone through what we have (and I appreciate the hand-me-downs, as well), but there is nothing like a buddy to commiserate with during the actual hard parts.

Oh well, I'll get there. And when I do, I can either be the advice giver, or the advice taker!
