what do you do if/when you get a chance to leave the house just for you...do you have extra curricular activities that you do? go to the gym? meet with friends? I am asking cuz I am in a rut right now...my kids can make do without me for the most part ( they are aged 18 - 9) they are busy with their friends and school/p-t job, and I am getting cabin fever. We are getting by so my money is tight, I do not know anybody here, I do a walk but I am getting bored and it is getting cold here...

I am really hoping someone can help ....my "enquiring minds" gotta know....lol

Join some groups. There is meetup.com, there are rec centers, book clubs, all kinds of things you can do. Take up a new hobby.

Get a hobby, I do digital scrapbooking on my computer. I also volunteer at my kids school, the local refuge and I go to the gym. By getting out I meet new people and keep my social life active. Stops me stewing at home!!

We don't have family around at all, I am a member of 2 Mops groups and we go to a toddler class for my daughter. From this groups I was able to met amazing women and get together with them for different activities with and without kids every week. Try to find a group that fit you, try Mops or Meetup. Good luck!!

My main activity is my book club. I didn't know anybody here either, but I found the club on facebook. If there isn't one, you can start one (or a knitting club, or anything else that interests you). There are always mums out there looking for something to do and waiting for someone to start it up. We meet at a local coffee shop where you can get a tea for a little over a dollar if you don't have much cash. All our books come from the library so we don't have to buy anything. I love my group. I call it my therapy.
