Where did the fun go?

 I have been on vacation this week with my girls for spring break and a friend offered to take the girls for the night tomorrow night and said "go have fun".  Ha!  I laughed....I mean when was the last time I actually went out and had fun?  We moved to TN a little over 2 years ago, I still dont have any "friends" here because of how much I work and I am not allowed to hang out with my employees (which means the only people I have time to talk to I am not allowed to hang out with) :(  I am married yes BUT he is a full time student so we see each other all the time, I love him, sometimes you just need a girl friend! SO back to the original question Where did the fun go???  What do you guys do for fun?

1 mom liked this

Game with my brothers, a few friends, and DH.  Not a girls night, but all my girl friends live in different states but one friend from h.s., and she is busy working and caring for her family like me.  Every two weeks a bunch of us get together nad play games, talk, and generally act as stupid as we can't anywhere else lol.  Lots of off color jokes, junk food, and random discussions about older movies, music, culture :)

Not much lol. Summers I play volleyball. I started back up last summer only knowing 1 girl and now I'm on a different team with all new people I met last year.

I meet up with friends either once or twice a month for dinner either out or at someone's house.  It is nice to get out once in awhile by myself.  My DH goes out with his friends too.  Fun has definitely changed since kids.

I have coffee or dinner with a group of friends or something alone. I do live for any time I can just be by myself.

my definition of fun has changed. It pretty much always involves my family. I do not have close girlfriends and I am ok with that right now, as I have other priorities.

BUT, I am an older mom, so I had my entire 20's to do nothing but have fun!

This. The only "fun" I have sans kid is volunteering at the consignment sales with my sister.

I often wonder this same thing - where did the fun go? I agree with the above: My definition of fun has changed. And honestly, there are days when I really struggle because I don't seem to have anything fun to look forward to. I try hard to find 'fun' in cleaning the house, or driving the kids to their activities. I spend time connecting with friends on social media, I get together once a month with a friend for coffee, I read on the bus, if spring ever comes I will enjoy bike riding. It is hard with a family and a job because I am pretty much in survival mode with no spare time [and no money] for fun as I once defined it. Very interesting question!

I enjoy eow with my so without kids. they go to their dads then. So we get to do whatever. Act however. My girlfriends have kids and jobs and family life too. So when we get together even if its at home in jammies with the kids being wild in another room. Its fun for us. We go to the bar every 4 months. That's about it.

I love having fun with my kids. Seeing their eyes light up about things.
