What do stay-at-home-moms DO?!

We're unpacked. The house is clean (enough). I've had at least 15 visits from friends and family since we moved in a month ago. I take trips to places like the grocery store (woohoo), Target (bigger woohoo) and a museum ($$$)...

BUT I'M BORED.

I used to watch kids during the day. I never, ever got a moment to sit down and relax. I cherished those moments. Now I'm pulling my hair out, looking for something to do other than cook and clean. I am no longer motivated to do anything! What's wrong with me?!

I'm in CHICAGO. I see the hustle and bustle of the city from my window every day, but what am I supposed to do with a toddler when it's 14 degrees outside? I try to take advantage of "free days" at museums and such, but I still end up spending $40-50. I cannot wait for summer. Alex only lets me play with him for 30 mins at a time. I'm kicking myself for teaching that kid to be so independent. ;) I'm going a little crazy. I seriously watched the TYRA show yesterday. (whimper)
