yup, i tend to try to have at least one activity during the week that involves friends or something at home but in my own little world. it doesn't always happen, but it is sooo good when i get to have dinner (ok drinks) with some girlfriends and catch up. it completely recharges my batteries and helps me be a better me! i think this only works if you are the type of person who thrives on being around people. i know i need people to talk to and interact with to remain sane.
