After making sure I got a good college education and working outside the home for 23 years, my husband and I decided it best for me to stay at home. The cost of gas and commuting along with childcare didn't make it worth it. So much to my surprise, I was incredibly bored despite volunteering at my sons school. I have since increased the parties I do for my Scentsy business which has been fabulous. It gets me out of the house on some evenings and week-ends to enjoy adult time and maybe even a glass of wine. I found it gives me the purpose I need for my day to day life but I don't have the demands/pressure of work and still can be there for my children. It has helped tons!

Why don't you try meetup.com? They have lots of mommy groups and so does the library. Check with your local library.

I feel bored and lonely all the time, my 6 year old is in school but I still have my 2.5 year old at home and there are just so many things you can do.

How old are your children? I have two boys ages 7 and 16 months and one girl 5 weeks. I never get bored or lonely because there is always something going on. I do miss having me time though!! I don't even think im going to be able to shower today (not until my husband gets home at least). When one child naps the other wakes up. I home school my 7 year old who has adhd so when the little ones are asleep im with him. Never a dull moment.

No Melissa, you are not the only one. So many women are lonely, me included. Life has slowed down for me a lot as my children are older now and I have a lot of time on my hands, and what friends I do have live far away. You are definitely not alone in feeling this way. Do you have any hobbies?
