Keeping busy?

I babysit and I feel like I'm wasting nap time. Usually I watch TV or play online. But I get bored and end up doing dumb things like posting ads on craigslist personals or updating plentyoffish. Then I get sucked into texting some loser... So anyways... And ideas on keeping my mind busy?

  • I always did housework during nap time. It was kinda nice to be able to get things done w/o interruption.

  • I'm not doing housework bc it's not my house and they only play for babysitting! But I do clean up the toys and the mess from lunch once they go down. But it doesn't take long.
