But what do you do all day long???

When I was in college I was visiting with some old friends and I asked one of the friend's Moms, who's kids were all in high school or above, what she did all day long. She looked at me as if I had just asked her who she killed earlier that day. But I still don't get it and I often think to myself what am I doing wrong because I have a ton of free time and I am bored to tears.

My oldest is in 3rd grade and my youngest goes to pre-school 2 days a week for 3 hours.

My day goes like this:

5:45- wake-gym

7:30- home, breakfast, beds made, rooms cleaned, lunches made, kids off on the bus

8:30- clean kitchen, do a load of laundry if needs be.



12:00-getting pretty bored and cabin fever, I wonder what's new at ULTA or if I
need a See's candy from the mall.

2:00 - return from shopping grab mail.

2:30 -clean randomness from house put Auri down if she wants a nap.

3:00-read mail until boys come home

4:00-boys come home hang out with me have a snack go to a sport.

5:30-6-dinner, homework

rest of the night.....................................................
kinda bored.

So lately I have really wanted a job. I have applied 2 places, only heard back from 1. But I am not done with this endeavor, just beginning actually, because when my daughter is in pre-school or even kindergarten I don't know what I'll do with myself all day long, seriously, what am I doing wrong.

Auri took this one of me in the afternoon reading my mail.

And these are my new work clothes!!!

Well, I don't have a job yet, so lets call them my interview clothes:)

I have since bought many accessories too;)

All I need now is a job.

I never get bored! The difference for me is. I sleep in. I start exercising when the kids leave. By the time I'm done, have taken a shower and had lunch, I've only got a few hours left to clean, volunteer in classes, run errands, catch up on email/callings and maybe dive into a project. I guess I need to wake up earlier. If only I could pay for a gym membership, maybe I'd get exercising in earlier. I have no motivation to exercise by myself at home early in the morning. I'm hoping this little extra bit of money from tutoring will allow me to go to fun early morning classes at a gym.

There is NOTHING wrong with getting a job because of boredom or not. You've got so much to offer in the work field. You go girl!

Honestly don't know what I would do with myself if I was planning to be a SAHM for the rest of my life. I LOVE having a career, and feel grateful to have a career that I love. I'm just starting to go back to work and hope to be closer to full time by next year. The past five years at home has been okay, and I am glad I've had the time with the kids, but I am always antsy to get back to work. I need better clothes, though! Yours look great.

I think some women take on very time intensive callings, and that is what keeps them busy, or volunteer all the time? Or do lots of crafting. I don't know.

Yeah, I'm kind of like Karen. I never get bored. I don't exercise or do anything *I* want to do until the kids leave the house. I guess I'm bored waiting for them to leave, though. ha Even though I get up at 5:30 for seminary, waiting to exercise/shower gives me a late start on the day. But I always have some project going on, or scrapbooking, or my calling, or helping someone with Heritage Makers (my "job"), or helping out at the school, or whatever.

The great thing is that we can do whatever fits us. My little list above fits me, and when I think about getting a job I actually get a little overwhelmed. You, though, are ready to get a job! Plus, you have fab outfits for it. :) I don't! :)

I LOVE this post! And I LOVE your work clothes! Where did you get them? Always looking for cute blouses and no-can-find. I need a job too in a few years....but what to do in the summertime when all the world is green and the kids are home?
