I leave my house more times in a day than you do in 2 months. I would kill someone if I stayed in that much.

I have a 15 month old and am 35 weeks pregnant, I try to leave my house 5-6 days a week. It's hard but I try.

 Not only are you isolating yourself, but you're isolating your child, he needs social interaction with others, especially children his age so he can learn to deal with different personalities young and learn how to act in public without fear. Help him build a circle of friends and please expand his world if not yours.

We have a playground in the backyard, so he gets plenty of outside time.

I really want job

Quoting i_am_no_1:

 I go shopping the two days after dh gets paid.

Quoting Anonymous:

I leave my house 4-7 days a week. I'd go crazy leaving the house once every 14 days. No thanks.

 My son is only 3 and autistic.

I don't do the banking or anything t do with the car.

I have no friends and don't do my hair or anything, I am a tomboy

Quoting Not_A_Native:

I leave every day, more often when the kids were still at home and not driving.  I'm a sahm (or stay at home wife now I guess).

I go to the gym, do the shopping, the banking (if needed in person), take the cars in for service, take in and pick up dry cleaning, really whatever needs to be done.  When the kids were younger it was several trips a day to dance (3 girls that danced competitively), girl scouts (I ran all 3 troops, plus was part of adult leadership).

I also meet friends for lunch, get my nails and hair done (hair every 6 weeks, nails every 2 weeks).

Honestly, I'm rarely home.

I go grocery shopping once a week. I take my kid to the pool once a week. I go to the library once a week. I usually go shopping at Target/Wal-Mart once a week. I take them to the park once a week or so. Then besides my usual stuff I usually take them on a fun random outing like the zoo, aquarium, bounce house place, kids coffee shop once every couple weeks.
Quoting i_am_no_1:

 I just don't know why I would.  I do go for walks around our neighborhood with my son and dh some days.

Quoting JakobLukasMom:

It is harder to get out when the kids are small, but even then I got out 4-5 days a week if only for a walk.
