Thanks Francie and AOB!! Good ideas.... we definitely need to get back to church anyway, and it'd be nice to get into SOME kind of group! I'll definitely look into that.
I actually do have Facebook and pretty much all of them are on Facebook too... which is where I send them messages, but rarely, if ever hear back from them. My mom doesn't really talk to too many of her friends from high school either anymore, and she still lives in her hometown! That just makes me so sad! To think that you grew up with these ladies, were in their weddings, shared so much with them and to think they might not play a bigger part in the rest of your life as well. Again, I'm sure if I did start to make some local friends and get back into the workworld I wouldn't feel quite so bad.
Thanks for the ideas though!
