I need a hobby or something to do for myself....

Any suggestions? I read and hang out with the kids but that's about it, (I work full time as well). Any suggestions at all would help.

  • Well, I like to quilt, read, write, journal, crochet, garden... I collect Hoyas- a type of plant that flowers and has beautiful leaves, for a while I was trying new recipes pretty much daily and that was kind of fun, but I detest the clean up. A few of my friends have picked up beading, and one is actually selling her stuff on etsy. My mom likes to bake cakes and sew. Any of these things can be a fun, relaxing hobby if you enjoy them.

  • Crocheting, gardening are mine. Needle point is another good one. Baking or cooking although your hips may not agree.

  • Personally, I am having an anti-craft reaction to being a SAHM so long. I like to read. I just finished a unit on religion and some history, and I really want to take up archery. I'd like to learn sword-fighting (not fencing), but I only know big men who do that, and they don't pull punches- I can't afford to be out of commission every time I'm hit. I also want to have the energy a tthe end of the day to write. My new hobby was beer-brewing, till I found out I can't do it because I have to watch the baby (needs 3-4 hour chunks), so my husband took that one over. Grr!

    And I like to cook different foods, mostly foreign, that are easy to mess up and my family won't eat.

    I have no creative/visual ability at all. And I don't really care. I'm not so domestic. And what I was, I got so annoyed at being pigeonholed, I lost interest (used to cross-stitch or crochet in the car as a passenger). Tech/web/programming is fun, too.
