Are you tried knitting? It can be very fun and there are knitting groups everywhere. Might be a great idea to keep you busy and get you out of the house and meeting new people.

I’m not a sew-er or anything crafty and I’m struggling with the same problem.  Guess I’ll keep stalking WB until I figure it all out.

I’M RIGHT THERE WITH YOU.  Before the engagement I was in school and involved heavily in my sorority.  During the engagement, I finished school, and we found a home.  Now… I’m bored to tears.  So I’m getting involved with my sorority again at an alumnae level (can you join an alum group for your school?) and joining a gym to take yoga classes!

Yeah, I’m totally in the same place.  I’m ACTUALLY considering helping my daughter’s school with coaching cheerleading – yikes!

What are things you like to do?  If you had a weekend to plan with you and bunch of friends, what activities would you put on the list?

I’ve felt the same way after moving to a different city.  I’ve spent a lot of time organizing and decorating my new apartment.  I am also going to get into knitting again when I settle in.

Why not get a job? If you find something that’s only 10-15 hours a week, that’s not too time consuming. Or volunteer? An animal shelter, or Big Brothers Big Sisters. Especially if you are able to work/intern/volunteer in the field you want to work in.

Have you thought about cooking or dancing lessons, photography, gardening, book clubs, triathalons or other exercise-related events, gardening, interior design…even writing a book or making a quilt? Haha. That may all seem a bit random, but they’re all things I’m doing/interested in doing. And there’s always grad school.

ETA: Actually, an internship might be the perfect thing for you! It ties in perfectly with your hubby’s desire for you to concentrate on your school work and your desire to get a job!

I’m definitely learning how to cook as a newlywed after all the gifts I got at the wedding.  It’s definitely a great chance to experiment and see what food I can make for my husband.

I felt the exact same way. I work full time, but I’d come home from work and say “now what.” I wasn’t in the mood to “research” any wedding stuff, because I was burned out on wedding planning. But I couldn’t figure out what to do with my time. I would just sit around, turn on the TV and feel bored. With life!

That has passed. After time, you will slowly adjust and get back to what you were doing before wedding planning. 

In the meantime, maybe do some small things- it doesn’t have to be anything drastic, but just plan a few things out. Maybe cook a fabulous dinner next week, or bake something great and send it off to your family members.  And while you’ve got the time, perhaps think about a few projects that were neglected while you were planning your wedding… cleaning out your closet, or waxing your car. 

If you plan on doing a few things, as those occupy your time things will start to get back to normal!
