I get bored...

I sit every night after Sean's gone to bed and stare at the TV or computer screen (as a little voice inthe back of my head screams for me to catch up on chores) and I think about how bored I am. I think, "Maybe I should paint, scrapbook, blog, take a bath, walk the dog--again, exercise, play video games, text a friend or relative, read my scriptures..." but still I sit and stare. I feel guilty not developing my talents, making the apartment spotless clean, or just going to bed and getting rest. I feel so bored, I have so many choices, yet I choose nothing. Why? How annoying I am to myself when I go through nights like these. Does anyone else go through this? What do you do? Don't get me wrong, its not every night, but it happens often. Yeah, I'm up this late, why go to bed when the baby will be up soon to eat again?

I can totally relate, I think it has to do with the fact that your body is exhausted do to lack of sleep, etc... but your mind doesn't get the stimulation it needs changing diapers and folding laundry. It'll get better, promise, at least until you have another one.

I find that I am most productive when I am super super busy. When my schedule it tight, I actually get a lot more done at home(because I have to or it all falls to pieces). My advise is to make a schedule and stick to it - so you always do everything at the same time. Each day you can swap out a different hobby with your specified "hobby time" to keep things interesting!

I too have gone through this, but like Fawn said, it gets better. I blame those blasting hormones. Remember what they did to your hair? By the way, I've tag you in my last post. See my blog to see what to do. You haven't posted in a while..!
