Have you thought about looking into a Mommy and Me class or a Moms group? Those are great! You can get out of the house, meet other Moms, etc. I was in a Mommy & Me Yoga when my son was 2 months old. I had a great time. Now he's 2 1/2 years old and we go to My Buddy and Me. We both love it. My local library has storytime for children of all at different times as well.

Hope this helps.

Are you a reader? If so, you could catch up on some reading during your down-time. Otherwise you could pick up a new hobbie. Scrapbooking, knitting, that sort of thing. I also made play-dates when my son was that little. Even though the kids couldn't really play together, it was nice to have some adult interaction with my friends that also had little ones and were stuck at home with nothing to do! I would also get out of the house as much as possible to keep me sane. Spend and extra 30 min in the grocery store or walk around your favorite store just for something to do. I always needed that extra time out of the house because I was always so used to being on the go. I hope this helps for some ideas!!
