We just moved closer to family. My husband has been working longer hrs lately. 11 to 930 but he has to be out by ten to make it on time to work so from ten to ten I'm home with the kids. Lately emotionally the lonliness is creeping on me. How did you battle the sahm blues

I go on Facebook. I visit family. Dinner with my parents once a week and dinner with my grandparents once a week. I take the kids to the park. We go out shopping (not buying anything).

I never had them ... and most of my years as a SAHM there was no such thing as CM, fb or even a computer!!

I like being alone. lol 

But whenever I got some cabin fever I would take Dd places simply for the feeling of getting out of the house, ya know? The park close-by, storytime at the library (I like the ones with a craft at the end), swimming or dance lessons, little things like that. You're bound to meet someone at some point and outings like that keep a momma pretty darn busy! 

Happenstance meetings turn to friendships, friendships turn to lunch dates, and before you know it you're leading an active social life!

It also helps to join some mommy groups. Your local cloth diaper store might have some meetups like mommy and me yoga, prenatal yoga, etc etc., there's MOPS too that a few of the moms I know are apart of. 

There's always people to meet at the gym! And a lot of gyms have childcare so that you can work out.
