  • Do some indoor exercise- go to the mall! We just walk around the mall sometimes to kill time. We dont always have money to spend, its just something to do. Sometimes we go to animal shelters or pet shops to look at the animals. Petco/Petsmart too. Getting out in the snow for just a little while isnt too bad either. You can finish off your time outside with some hot cocoa.

  • Job hunting is a job; he should be spending eight hours a day searching for a job: networking, following up on positions that he has applied for, seeking new positions to look into, reaserching companies that he would like to work for, etc.

  • I wish my husband wanted to do something fun. His idea of doing something fun together is for him to play his stupid guild wars game or whatever it's called or go fishing with his friends while I do everything else. Yes, he really thinks that I enjoy that he does those things while I raise the kids by myself.
