My husband works, and I stay home. I have a 15 month old and a 3 yr old and one on the way. Everyday we desperately seek a reason to get out of the house and are successful most days. We go to the park, the beach, the mall, etc..
Everyday I wake up, get the kids up, make breakfast leave the house, get back put kids down for a nap, make dinner, take the kids a bath, put them to bed and then after an hour of TV, I go to bed.
I don't know what I'm looking for, because I don't want to spend any less time with the kids or my husband. I guess I'm just restless. I want some excitement.
I've always had a very active life, and now I struggle to find things to get me worked up and there's a void. I've talked to my husband about it, and he mostly feels bad that we cant afford to do more traveling type stuff.
Anyone else feeling the same?

Being at home all the time does suck. I hardly get out and we never have a sitter for all the kids (5 of them). So I just started to find things I could do at home. Before I had kids I liked to make jewelry so now I make it and sell it online. Even if I don't sell anything I still have fun making it. I started reading again too. Find a hobby. Try something new. Maybe find a group of women with common interests in your area to hang out with. Lots of times they have a web site. If you go to church there could be options there too. We have a women's group that gets together once a month at mine. Most times it's a meeting at church to plan events, but sometimes we take day trips. It's something to do and I really enjoy the company and new friendships I found there. Plus it''s not very time consuming so it doesn't take away from my family time.
