How do you keep from being bored to death?

I don't know how women stay at home with kids all day. I feel like I need a change of scenery.

  • Notice no one has come up with an answer yet. If I could have the house to myself, I would kill the boredom by doing some housework naked. But that's not the case, so I have no answer.

  • I am a SAHM and am never bored. When I am not entertaining my 4 month old, I am doing laundry, cooking, cleaning. And if I have free time I read, take a nice long shower or do a puzzle. If you are bored then you should look into picking up some hobbies.

  • Oh, Lord....I'm busy every minute but that doesn't mean I don't get bored. I really truly get bored out of my mind. Painfully bored. And normally by that time the weekend is here and I get to get out for a bit.

    It's only occasionally I get that bad though. So during the week when I feel myself getting anxious and bored, I open the curtains. Natural sunligt helps your mood. Also, I try to go out for a walk or a drive. I don't have a working car right now so if I need to I call my mom and she'll pick the baby and I up.

    Some cases can be solved by just waiting til baby falls asleep and doing whatEVER the heck I want. Shower (whether or not ive already had one), books, tv, computer. Anything that would normally make me feel guilty.
