Single Parents

What to do.

Well I am recently single and i am going through a divorce. I really want to learn a new hobby or something to do to get me out of the house.. Its hard coming home and sitting here and thinking about my past...

I dont want to take a cooking class or write a book i want to do something out of the box.. I know im being a pain but none of that stuff really interest me. If you have any idea please leave me a message.


Thanks Courtney

Re: What to do.

  • I like crocheting when I have time. It's portable and it helps me relax and I don't have time to think about things when I do it.

  • There are a lot of things you could do to get out of the house: Go to a movie, join a club that interests you, go to the library, go for a walk, get a camera and start taking pictures, paint, start a garden or volunteer at a shelter/church/food pantry.

    You could also see if a local college offers any courses you might be interested in taking.

  • Yes, I am going back to school this fall semester. Obv I don't know your financial situation, but it works great for me because I received a grant so I'm actually getting money to go to school, I have something to do to fill up my free time rather than wasting time surfing the net, watching tv, stressing about the situation with EX. I am really looking forward to the sense of accomplishment I will have every time I finish a paper, get a good grade, etc. I can't wait to have my degree and start providing a better life for myself and DD.

  • They have  (free) classes at my library thats for infants and toddlers. Sometimes they read stories, and do things in the PJ's but its fun and E LOVES it. Look for your nearest library, they may offer classes and things. Also I run in the mornings, relieves stress and its a great workout. And one last thing eventhough its indoors is scrapbooking. I love it, and its a great way to save all your childs memories.

     Good Luck!!!

  • Belly dancing?  Zumba?  Join a book club.  Start your own blog.  take online courses and slowly work towards a degree.  The possiblities are endless.

  • Get a camera (here is a used DSLR from a reputable site with the standard kit lens for $209) -

     Get a book, and learn to use it!  Practice on flowers, other kids, things around the house.... so when baby gets here you will be a pro!

  • I took a ceramics class and loved it! I loved working with the clay!

    The center also had Jewelry making, oil painting, water colors, quilting and lots of other artsy stuff.

    I would like to learn to knit or crochet...but I have not found the time!

    I couldn't make this sh*t up!
