I also have a part-time job. My kids have made many friends and are doing well. The problem is their parents. Both my husband’s family and mine live in the Midwest, so making connections with people here is very important to us. We have had a couple of parties at our house in an effort to get to know people in our neighborhood. But no one ever invites us to their house or their parties. I meet lots of great people through my job, but only on a professional level. I’ve met parents through my kids’ school and sports, but no real friendships have developed. We recently joined a social group (I’m volunteering to help run it), and that has helped somewhat. But so far, only one family in our neighborhood has made any effort to get to know us better.

The Herald

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
WEDNESDAY, OCT. 12, 2011 Conditions aren’t likely to be too dull for you in the next year, when it comes to your career. All kinds of exciting and unexpected happenings could be in the offing, and how you respond to events could either make or break you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Don’t place too much hope on verbal commitments from others regarding their willingness to help. When you need them the most, they could be dedicating their support elsewhere. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Control your powers of concentration by keeping your mind only on the task at hand. If you happen to make a mistake, you should be able to catch it immediately and fix it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Something you’ve neglected for far too long might hamper your freedom of mobility. What you’ve been sweeping under the rug could suddenly create a veritable storm of dust bunnies. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Indecisiveness is an attitude that can easily be corrected. However, if you continue to persist being wishywashy, your friends might not want to deal with you anymore. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Guard against continually attempting to do things that are way beyond your mental or physical capabilities. Face up to your shortcomings and seek help when needed. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Be budget-minded, because if you aren’t, funds you’ve earmarked for necessities shan’t be there for you down the line, when you need them to pay the bills. Think ahead. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Be extremely selective concerning with whom you spend your leisure time so that the wrong types don’t ruin your fun. You need to laugh a bit to refurbish your soul. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Certain people tend to be somewhat caustic and/or critical, but you don’t have to respond in kind. Set a good example by being extremely tolerant when dealing with everybody. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you want special items that you own to enjoy long lives, pay attention to your care in handling them. Breakage is a product of carelessness. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When negotiating something of significance, make certain all parties involved understand the small points as well as the main issues in the agreement, so no one later can claim ignorance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Methodically plot your course of action before you jump into the fray, or you could end up being the victim of your own handiwork. Look ahead and program each and every step you take. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you let your friends look upon you as their rock of Gibraltar today, they’re likely to bring more trouble into your life than you care to handle. Put limitations on your availability.
