I feel like I am not home enough to get much accomplished. Is that weird? I don't even work .

We are always home. 90% of the time we are here. Between my van not running right and having just enough money for bills and almost no extras, we just can't go anywhere.

I guess I'm kind of a home-body. I take the kids out for their activities, which are 4 days a week for about an hour. And we have church, and DH and I try to go out together for at least one little afternoon date a week to reconnect since he's so busy with work and school. Add in the grocery, OB and occasional play dates, I'm probably out of the house about 10-14 hours a week. I like to be home. In the A/C and comfy clothes!

I am home much more than I am out. it saves me from spending $$ I don't have. however, I find I am depending on my computer for friendship and outside contacts a whole lot more than I should. I also think it contributes to my being so overwhelmingly tired many days - I think I am bored of being here.

I'm a homebody by nature so we spend a lot of time at home. I am not one who likes to be on the move all of time, for the very reasons you mentioned.

I'm not getting out nearly as much as I used too. I can't handle the over 100 degree temps when I'm not pg! We are only going to OB, chiropractor and Pediatrician appts really. Sometimes hitting the fabric store while we are close. I'm having a hard time walking this pg. Its really limited my activities. We got in a trip to the amusement park and several zoo and museum trips in before I started hurting so much. I didn't sign up for any summer clubs this yr. Last yr I was taking the kids hiking, but I'm not allowed to pick up my kids, much less carry them up a mountain and through caves this yr!

I stayed home a lot this week. I got a lot done. I think I need to do that more often.

I don't stay home nearly as much as I want to.

During the school year I try to make sure to be home 2 full days a week, monday and thursday. I don't know what I am always doing, but there always seems to be something.

I like being at home and relaxing. I don't want the pup pups to be kenneled all day, so I am home often this summer. But when work starts up again...it's going to be different. During the work year, I always feel like I'm not home enough and it bothers me a bit. But just when I think I can't do it anymore, we get a three day weekend.
