Things to Do When You're Stuck At Home

Hey guys! :)

So I'm going to be having my eye surgery sometime in July. That means that I will be at home for 3 weeks. I won't be going out AT ALL, I will just be home for 3 weeks straight.

I'll obviously get a lot of stuff done on the computer (maybe including some fictional writing), and I'll get a lot of my DVR'd shows cleared up...but even I couldn't just sit in front of a screen for three weeks straight! I also plan on getting some cleaning done. And I do have a treadmill so I can make sure I keep up my muscle mass with that lol. But I need more!

So that's where you guys come in; I need some other ideas at what I could do to keep myself busy and sane during those three weeks.

Do you have a garden? Will you be able to do computer stuff after eye surgery? - I would try out all the recipes I've been meaning to try. Phone everyone I've been meaning to phone.

No I don't have a garden, but I do have a lot of pets lol. They'll be getting lots of me time! I actually need the time off for leading UP to the surgery, after the eye surgery I'll be ready to go the next day or two. I'm not a great cook, and I don't like talking on the phone -_- But really there isn't anyone I need to talk to that isn't already in my life :)

Are you sure you could spend time in front of the computer?Is it not a strain on the eyes? If you like music you can listen to them. Write posts in Persona Paper.May be you can plan and write a novelette.

I say just take some time to relax and enjoy yourself. Slow down a bit and enjoy the fact that you don't have to do anything! Of course if it were me I would spend my time cleaning and online. Good luck with your surgery and enjoy that downtime!

I like to do "Word Finds". I buy those books of "Word Finds" for a dollar a the Dollar Store. The books are different, but each one has between 45 and 80 Word Finds per book. You can have hours of fun doing them.

Declutter the house and list things on eBay? Blog your experiences day by day (here or elsewhere)? SIgn into SlicethePie and review music? Take up extreme couponing?

Yes I really don't have to change too much of my daily life, I just can not wear my contacts (but I'll double check on that). I think I'll definitely get a lot of reading done, writing too! :) Maybe I'll clear a couple books off my bookshelf! Lol

Oh I will definitely be getting some cleaning done :) I'm already looking at stuff saying, yep, you'll be gone soon! Lol. Thank you! I will definitely use this time to relax and get caught up on my sleep!

Oh I can't work on those too long, drives me CRAZY. Lol. For some reason I just get majorly stressed out working on puzzles and stuff like that. But I do love to read, so books are definitely going to be art of the equation :D

Lol thank you for all the suggestions :D I have never heard of SlicethePie, will have to luck it up. I'm already trying to declutter but no one will buy my stuff! -_- But I don't like ebay, I wasn't happy with their fee before, and now I saw recently they've increased it! Boo lol. But I do try to sell with local sites/apps (OfferUp, Craigslist, NextDoor, local Facebook groups). But no luck (I shouldn't say NONE, just low) lol.

Don't know if you can use Shpock? It's a free mobile app for 'advertising beautiful things for sale'. I can't get on with it myself so I'm sticking to eBay for now, but I know many people who dislike eBay find Shpock is ideal.

There are a lot of things that we can do at home and I am glad you already have plans

Well, if I were stuck at home for three weeks, I would probably do the same thing. You know you can probably pull out a great story during that time. ;)
