I was bored.
I had my longest leave from work (11 days) since my 4 month maternity leave 2 years ago. I was so bored. Clean house, check. Play outside, check. Work in the garden, check. Park, check. Zoo, check. Pool, check. Exercise, check. Walk, check. Clean house, check... By day 4, I was OMG, how much longer can this go on?? Day 5, I packed me and my daughter up and headed to the beach for 4 days. Yay!
Guess I'm really not cut out to be a SAHM, or *ahem*, a FTM. Or maybe I should have more than one kid to keep me a busy bee, lol.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE spending all the time possible with my daughter, but even with activities outside and out of the house for 50% of the day, I still felt so house-bound. I don't know how sahms can do it, plus if I were a sahm, I'd have no money to get out of the house very often. I would lose my mind.
I will say, spending all that time with my daughter was wonderful. No complaints there.
