I'm not anti-social. I'm cautious. And quite frankly, tend to be a little reserved in person. At first. ;-)
Emily was invited to a pool party for Girl Scouts tonight. Families were welcome, so Fia, Sydney, and I tagged along.
Even pushing aside the fact that I don't feel well today (I've been asleep more than I've been awake today - really getting in touch with my inner sloth), it's important to understand that unless I'm submerged in water, I'll never be comfortable having a conversation with someone while I'm in a swimsuit. This is not a new thing. Even when I was skinny enough to blow away in a stiff wind, I was uncomfortable just standing around half nekkid yakking about whatever.
I've just become very...not anti-social. I mean, if you say hi to me, I'll say hi back. I may even wave at you or say hi first. I just have a hard time getting back into "society" after hiding out for so long. I just don't know how to go back to my "old self" - and I don't know if I want to. But I'm working on it. Just don't expect to see me on the PTA anytime soon. :-)
Maybe I can try again in a a few months at a function that will allow me to come in jeans and a sweatshirt. :)
