I'm on a bunch of mommy messageboards. I've "known" these ladies for years but haven't met most of them. They occasionally have meetups, but they are always too far away for me. A few months ago on one of the boards the ladies had a meetup in Texas. For weeks there was tons of talk about Dallas Texas hotels, flights, fun stuff to do, etc. For those of us who couldn't go we felt a little left out of all the discussions. Maybe one of these days I'll get a chance to go to a meetup, if they ever have one closer to where I live.
