So I cant find a job ANYWHERE. We live in a small town and the nearest place is like 15 minutes away and we only have 1 car and SO needs it for work. Anyways I get SO SO bored at home. The only thing I can do is watch T.V. or be on the internet. And there is only so much of them I can handle. I find myself eating ALOT because of this. And Im so afraid that if this keeps happening well Im afraid Im going to be a whale in the end. So what can I do to occupy my time??

It can vary.   What are your interests?

What about:
childcare
handwork-crafts

helping someone in-need in their home (elderly)
home decor (like floral arrangements)
online-computer work/tech

Do you have children?
What about preparing for the birth?

I second the childcare or if you are crafty you could sell stuff on etsy!

Oh I would enjoy doing childcare so much, and I have tried seeking it out, I put up a couple ads and asked around and unfortunately no one needs daycare or has replied to my ads. I really want to crochet but I dont know how

Well, there is something to start on!    ;-)

When I started the babysitting thing I posted an ad on craigslist and had a lot of responses. I ended up watching my 11month old nephew and a 2yr old who's mom works with my MIL. I make decent money doing it and believe me you are never bored! They keep you on your toes

You could learn to crochet, I've heard good things about youtube if you want to check that out when you're on the computer..

What about going for walks, to help balance out the eating?

Becoming crafty somehow, I don't know how tho..
