SAHMs?

Do you have days and days in a row where you just don't go anywhere? I do. I just have no where to go or can't afford to go anywhere, so I'll go 2, 3, 4 days without going anywhere but the mailbox.

  • Oh yea! I go days too without going anywhere. I dont see this as a problem, your home is your castle, you should want to be home, now if its not a happy home i can see why anyone would want to always be out of the house. I keep my family of 6 entertained with board games, reading, schoolwork, tv, life lessons, video games, ect. Not a issue to stay home, feel blessed!

  • Yes. I find if I dont need to go somewhere there is no point in just driving somewhere to say I left the house.
    Thats unproductive and silly to me.

  • Yeah I stay at home a lot of the time. But if your looking to get out, just take a walk or head to the local park. I spend a big part of our time in our backyard having scavenger hunts and playing different types of games. You don't really have to spend money to have fun.

  • Yes! We go for walks alot. We walk to the library, to Target or Walmart, but my house. Just to see other humans! It's free and good exercise!

  • Yes :[ The only times I really get outside is when I take the dog out, but we have to give her away so ugh.

  • I am a SAHM and I go crazy if I do not get out in the evenings. Our house is happy and I am in a happy healthy marriage but I still need out of the house. I babysit during the day so I generally do not go anywhere with the kids I babysit but when they leave I will take my boys to Toys R Us or the park just to get out of the house. We play out back a lot and take walks but I normally need to go somewhere to break up the day.
