  • Im single but I feel that way about my teens. I go into bored gear when Im home alone. Once they get home and ask for the computer I get centered and start cleaning and paying bills.

  • The hard part is keeping up with hobbies and doing the stuff you enjoy. I've found that whenever I try to start a project, my DS decides he has to be in my lap, which makes sewing dangerous, and scrapbooking or painting very messy. Mostly I clean house, read, or watch tv during the day when I'm not playing games or doing fun projects with DS. He's 3, so now we spend a lot of time working on educational activities. GL!

  • I do count down the hours (even after 22 years) until my hubby gets home, but not from boredom...just because I miss him.

    I don't have time to be bored. Between the housework, financial stuff, shopping, cooking......and then I love to sew, scrapbook, and I, I'm trying to make myself exercise daily, either walking, biking or dancing....I actually don't have enough time in my day to do everything I want to do.....

  • When I was a SAHM/SAHW I would keep the house clean of course. After that I would watch tv, or get on the computer, or play my PS3. I am a home body anyways and like being alone so it does not bother me to be alone.
