  • Sit on my ass. Seriously... I sit here and watch TV or am on the computer. I also take a nap for about three hours. I'M BORED OUT OF MY FRIGGIN' MIND. I worked for 17 years and have only been a SAHM since March and I'm about to go crazy. My baby is due soon and I'm looking forward to having something to do with my time.

  • I still have 3 home when 2 are in school, but I would do the same thing, clean more, bake, crafts, and volunteer work!

  • I am not working right now but this is not my usual thing. I put the girls on the bus and either take a 3 hour nap or go to school if I have class that day. I then do a power clean for about an hour and house is clean and I am well rested. I do not do anything while my kids are home. It is all homework, snacks, dinner, loves and cuddles and games. I refuse to clean while they are awake and home. I may also play the PS3 or run errands.

  • There are a lot of organizations looking for holiday volunteers. Call your town/county/city offices and inquire.
