Are you ever bored?

I am a SAHM and kids are now grown and cant seem to fill my time. I am finding that I am bored most of the time. Chores done by 10 then what? UGH what do you do all day?

  • I haven't been bored in years.

    Go volunteer at the local hospice, or the pediatric cancer ward, if you can't think of anything else to do. Because two days of that and I assure you, you can find something else to do.

    Boredom is good for people --it gives them the drive to make changes in their lives, creates curiosity and the urge to get up and do something. Plant a garden, read a book, volunteer, bake something, introduce yourself to a neighbour, go for a walk, rearrange your spices, learn a new language, take apart a car, replumb the spare bathroom...

    You have permission. Do what you want.

  • My son is 3 & am pregnant with #2. I should say 'no'... I'm never bored. But the truth is I have NO motivation to do ANYTHING that I need to do. I think I have cabin feever... my husband has our only running car at the moment and he works an hour away so I am in the house (with my son who I adore!) ALL day - 60-80 hours a week. And with 'morning sickness' I don't feel like doing much of anything!!

  • I'm never bored but get sick of the same thing every day. Wake up, take care of son, work, and do class work. I get so sick of it after a while.
