the down side

Okay, I am on my third week of stay at home mom-hood. I have a terrible confession to make. I am getting really bored. I am sure that fate if going to kick me in the butt for saying this (probably on or about November 7th), but it is true. I have finished some major household duties. Some things I want to do, I cannot because of my delicate state (delicate my left elbow!) and have to wait for my dear husband to help me with. My house is cleaner than it has been in ages, I make the beds every day, and plan and cook good healthy meals for supper. I have arranged weekly play dates with my neufie neighbor who has 2 kids close in age to Abby. I also have arranged to be at story time once a week at the library. I have caught up on all of my phone calls and paper work stuff. What do I do now????

Do I have to start canning vegetables?
Do I circle the best deals in flyers and spend all day doing grocery shopping at 17 different stores to get good deals and "save money"?
Do I pester everyone I know to buy Discovery Toys from me? (Actually I might just do that - the toys are really cool, and I love doing all of the paperwork involved in putting peoples orders together. Watch your mailbox for a catalogue coming soon!)

AHHHH! What do stay at home moms do all day long???

I'd go for caning vegtables. I have always wanted a stock pile of canned garden tomatoes. Yes, can sister can!

I would probably go shopping :) And I'd get my nails and hair done- and I'd go to the gym everyday! I'd enroll in a community college class for Yoga, Art or French, and I'd go to all of the church activites that sound really fun, but in reality start at 6:30pm, therefore there is not a chance in hell i'd ever actually make it too one. Oh, and I would go to Costco for the samples- Im sure Abby would Love that. Thats my 2 cents.

You need a calling!

Things I want to spend time on are:
- reupholstering a cool chair I got from the goodwill
- learn to use adobe photoshop so I can do Oak's scrapbook now that he is ALREADY 2 YEARS OLD
- exercise!!
- do visiting teaching
- make bread
- to CEUs for work from home

Acutally, though, I like working part time because sometimes it does get a little dull. Even with a calling.
