It's pretty pathetic when..

Posted by   + Show Post

The highlight of my day is a trip to Wal-Mart. 

I didn't even need anything, It's just down the road and I wanted to pass some time. Ugh. I''m going craazay here. I'm a SAHM and a full time student. I'm in class once a week and the rest are online. My house is clean, the laundry is done, dinner is cooked, cookies are baked, went for a walk,  lo is happy and playing..  and this is all by 5:30!  My dh doesn't get home until around 10. I don't know annyone in this town.  I'm seriously bored! I need a hobby sheesh-laweesh.

any suggestions?

Sounds like you need a hobby or to get outside interests. That is no way to live!

When I was in that situation, I joined a gym that had childcare.  Went to a water aerobics class twice a week, met people there (that I'm still friends with 18 years later), was able to shower and do my hair/makeup in peace, and felt better with all the regular exercise as well.  Truly, it was my lifeline.

I feel the same way. I like looking at the houseware stuff.

As a Suggestion...Sewing is always fun and maybe you could earn some extra cash too... look on freecycle in your area or at local thrift shops for a sewing machine and notions and fabrics. You can always find free patterns on line.

Since you bake you might try baking fancy cakes or gourmet cookies. make a  list of things you enjoy or would like to try doing and explore them one at a time and see what you can fit into your days schedule... 

i wish you the best

It's so easy!! I learned watching you tube videos!! Lol

Quoting Mazi184:

I do exercize, I have a great app on my phone that has a bunch of workouts so during one of the lo's naps I do that, but that's only 45 minutes of a day lol. 

As for crocheting, I REALLY want to get into that, I've seen so many cute and cool things to make on different websites. Idk I'm just intimidated by it, lol, It looks so hard to learn. I don't even know how to start!

Quoting Jay9xoxo:

Do you enjoy knitting or crocheting? How about excersizing or reading?

I crochet to take up some hours of my day that are free. I'm working on a huge queen size blanket at the moment, so it's keeping me kind of busy lol.

How about going for a walk or a jog? Maybe do a Zumba DVD for fun, or a kickboxing DVD?

Read any good books lately? The fifty shades trilogy is keeping me occupied too lol.

Haha I love getting out of the house even if its just going to a store. But it doesn't bother me. I'm not a big people person
