Life has been pretty blah lately. I’m currently looking for work, so money is kind of tight. I spend my days watching TV, working on some wedding stuff, and just doing chores. Winter weather is not cooperating either, so I’m all cooped up in the house.
Need some (cheap) ideas to shake it up.
What do you like to do to help you get out of a rut?
Ooh… I am getting my haircut tomorrow. First one in forever!!!! 🙂

haha, I just got to your last line and was thinking “HAIRCUT!”.
Not sure how long you’re going to be housebound, but I like to take a day to myself when I get like that – go for a movie or a meal alone, get a discount massage at the local massage school, pick a place within driving distance that I’ve never been, etc.

Working out always helps put me in a better mood and feel more energetic. Since you’re home during the day, maybe try picking up some DVDs from the library or hit up Walmart/Target (workout DVDs are fairly inexpensive). Zumba is good, and I also recently picked up the Dirty Dancing workout which is MAJOR fun!

Sounds like you just need to get out of the house been there done that. What did I do? I found a neighbor that needed their dogs walked a couple times a day. I got paid a nominal amount of money, but I also got some exercise in the process. I also walked to the store and just window shoped. The biggest thing is keeping your schedule the same as it was before you lost/quit your job. Wake up take a shower and wear regular clothes (No SWEAT PANTS). It is easy to get into a routine of not taking care of yourself when you do not feel like you have a purpose. Oh and don’t watch too much Roseanne, she’ll get to you. 🙂
