How can i get my ass off is couch!!!

ok so its extremely hard for me to seperate myself from the couch these days. its 100+ outside, and my AC is screwed up so its almost 90 everywhere in my house except the bedrooms and living rooms which have fans and a window unit. i let the 2 yo play outside for a bit in the mornings before the heat kicks in, and from that point on we're inside. we live in a backwoods town and the nearest entertainment is 40 minutes away even the library and some days hubby take the car to work. its too hot for DS and i to run around in the house, so we sit, read, color, watch movies, etc all day. and i usually spend all my time on the couch. i clean in the mornings when i wake up so all that is usually done. i dont really cook a lot bc its already too hot inside to turn the stove on!im just bored and my couch is getting lumpy cuz my ass is always in it!!! help!

  • It's fine to stay in if it's too hot. Just go out and play after dinner. Go out around 7:00 when it gets cooler. You can get a good hour to 2 hours outside in the evenings.

  • lol I feel the same way during the dog days of summer. We're in the South where its hot & humid & miserable right now. I got my dd a blow up pool @ walmart for 10 bucks & blew up the rings & set it up in the dining room. I only put about an inch of water in the bottom, too much water & its too heavy to drag to the door to empty. When she's not playing in it it folds up pretty easy. & on the days I just can't take it anymore I get in & play w/ her :)
