For a looong, long time…nothing. Except be lazy and depressed and feel guilty (we agreed that I would quit my job, but I still felt guilty that I wasn’t doing anything to bring in money, even though we’re financially sound) and eat. Then I decided to be the best stay-at-home fiancé / soon-to-be stepmom ever. So I made a job out of cleaning and cooking and all of that good stuff. I also have used the time to do DIY projects and learn new skills and read and try to stay busy. I was going to take classes this term, but the financial aid didn’t pan out. I just do my best to find things I enjoy and tackle projects I’ve wanted to try.

When I was in that position I hit rock bottom (sleeping 12 hours, not leaving the house, etc) so I started making a work schedule. From 9-12 everyday I dropped off resumes, made followup calls, and went online to find job opportunities. From 12-1 I did lunch. From 1-2 I kept the house (it was so clean…. And hasn’t been since!). From 2-3 I read a good book, and then 3 was a talk show and 4 I started dinner.

Before that I slept until 12, got up and went on the net for a few hours, did mindless games for a few hours, had someone cook for me and went to bed. It was ugly.

Domestic goddess stuff (cook, clean, laundry, grocery shop) it’s amazing how much of the day that takes up.  I also started running and try to increase my distance (since you’re not press for time there’s no need to rush).  Also I explored the city.  Went to places where I would never go on weekends because there’s too many people.

I sleep a lot, watch tv, read, do stuff around the house
