I remember as a young woman reading a book that said that one reason some marriages go under is because women don't make time to have girlfriend-time anymore. The idea was that we expect our husbands to meet needs that they simply can't. While my marriage is fine I, like all women, need time to run things by my girlfriends, to laugh and cry with them, to drink coffee, and quilt or whatever it is we do. I wonder when I got too busy to make time for friends? I have a lot of girlfriends, some I've had for most of my life, but today was the first time since July that I actually had a planned, sit-down discussion with a friend, and she had to plan it. Before that, it was probably the previous summer! I work too many hours, but that is the nature of my career. I need to fix this.....anyone have suggestions?
