I am a SAHM. I want to go back to work but really can't. I am so sick of nothing but cooking and cleaning and kid activities. I love my family with all my heart, they are my world and I want to be their all as well but I need something for myself, a hobby, anything. I need some excitement in my life! Getting depressed and can't think of what to do!

  • enjoy it while you can. That being said get a hobby. What are things you like? You could do girls night out once a week or so. Or some sport actlivity?

  • Contact the local recreation department to join the seasonal sport team. Its a physical activity and will get you out of the house a couple days/evenings a week.

  • I envy you, being a SAHM. ireally miss those days --my kids are all grown up with their own families.
    ANd life has never been boring for me anyway. Just getting up in the morning, feeling healthy, having a family and a home was exciting. Reading good books, seeing my kids grow, watching a movie that touched me, having a friend or two that I could visit with occasionally, doing Red Cross volunteer work at the AF BAse hospital,etc.and knowing that there were always surprises ahead was enough to be happy about and never bored!!!
