Its been 3 months since the wedding and my Hubby and I have become very lazy. We purchased a home and planned a wedding all this past summer. So it was a crazy summer. But now, we just go to work, come home and do nothing.
I come home and cook dinner and then I clean my kitchen and then we pretty much just watch TV.
Has this happened to anyone else? How do we get out of this stump???

We are not married yet, but we get in a slump like this EVERY winter. Do you think it’s just the weather? In the summer we are VERY active kayaking, hiking, bbqing with our friends, and other stuff cause it’s nice out, but I find we have the same routine in the winter. It goes like this…Go to work, come home, make dinner, have a glass of wine (beer for him) clean dinner up, watch tv or a movie go to bed, and do it all over again. It’s kinda depressing as you know, but just remember that it’s okay to lay low in the winter. We are trying to be more active so tonight we are going to drive around and look at all the christmas lights and this weekend we are going to go for a hike. It’s hard to get motivated to do something when the waether is gross and it’s cold, but once you do it feels so good!
Hope you find something that works 🙂

I know the feeling! I force myself to go to the gym to in the hopes of shedding “honeymoon weight.”. We’ve also tried to invite people over on occasion (yay an excuse to use some of our wedding gifts!) I also figure all the peace and quiet will disappear when kids come along, so better enjoy it while it lasts!

We are the EXACT same! I actually love being able to do nothing and just watch TV, but I feel like we should do something. We usually have plans on the weekends, so it’s really Monday-Thursday night that we almost never do anything. As Candace mentioned, it will be easier to get out when it’s not winter. It’s dark by the time we leave work, and it’s so cold! Also, we used to play on a softball team before the wedding, but this time of year there is a two month (at least) break.

We do the same thing, but we have ALWAYS been that way. We always talk about how we need to cut back on TV, but our days are so stressful. It’s nice to vedge out!

We got married 3 months ago, and the SAME THING has happened. We just sit around and do nothing. It’s really hard to get motivated when it is so dark outside. We are making plans to do things this weekend, and then get back to the gym!

I feel the exact same way! Gah as much as I love coming home to relax, I feel so lazy/unhappy just working all day then coming home, cooking, cleaning the kitchen, then drinking a glass of wine and watching a movie evvverrryyy singgggllleee nigggghhhtt.
Although in the lunchroom at work the other day, my two coworkers were talking about their crazy stressful nightly routine with their kids, and I jokingly bragged about having done nothing the previous night. I guess I make myself feel better by telling myself to enjoy it, bc once the kids come these nights will be a thing of the past!

I get this way too, one way out is to find a project. You say you just bought a home, is there nothing else you need to do? I know personally I need to paint a bunch of rooms, do landscaping, etc. Perhaps you and FH can find a project to do together, or make a goal for yourself (exercise, cooking, reading a book together, learn a new language, etc)

I was married in August, and its pretty much the same for us. For us though, I’m so tired from school and he’s tired from a new job, so neither of us want to do anything. An exciting night for us is renting a movie haha. I’m hoping once school’s over we can get out more.
If you want to get out of the slump, maybe schedule things in advance for you to do on the weekends. Oh, and maybe check out groupon or one of theose coupon sites. They always have the most random things at a cheaper price, so that might give you ideas (and yay discount!). I got a wine tasting and a brunch a while ago, though we still need to use them, haha.

Aw that sounds like my day every day for a few years. I don’t know how to get out of it, but it’s really not that bad.

I think it’s a seasonal thing. I’ve been SO LAZY these past few weeks – come home, relax on the couch. It’s horrible.

Thanks everyone for responding.

I think it is a season thing too. DH and I turn into hermits in the winter.
