My days off from work I go stir crazy. Do you go out in the world and have fun on your own?

If the weather is nice I go to a local park and just sit and enjoy the flowers that are starting to show their lovely heads, listen to the birds etc. Look around at all the beauty that God has given us. Sometimes I just take a slow walk around the neighborhood for some much needed exercise. The library is also a place I visit.

Your ideas sound tranquil and very relaxing. Some good stress relievers for sure.

What I like to do when I am not on the computer is to: clean, watch t.v., gardening, playing with my kids or just kick back and relaxing with a good book.

When I am not on the computer, I usually go to the movie theatre to watch some movies with my boyfriend or friends. After that, we go at the karaoke bar to sing. hehehe

Are you a good singer? I doubt I could get up and sing in front of a crowd. Although it does sound fun.

Oh no, I am not a good singer. We usually rent a room so that we can sing there without others hearing us. lolz

No I do not go out and have fun on my own, and you know what, I should do!! You cannot rely on others to have fun with you and this is what I do, wait for my hubby to be off work or the kids to be off school and I should not, I should just take myself off and have some fun on my own!!

I get bored when I go out because I don't do the things I use to I feel better being on the internet. I use to go out a lot, but since I have gotten older I don't go a lot of places. I wish I had of found Mylot 2 years ago. I am having so much fun here I wouldn't trade it for the world. good Therapy too. I write a lot of my feelings down right here, and that is good to right your feelings down, this Senior told me this yrs, ago and she is right.

Yes writing is a good stress reliever. I like to write sometimes although sometimes I find I can be at a loss for words.

For me, I'll make it simple. Bring my travel suitcases and take some necessity, go to a place where you want to go all the time. If your holiday is short, you could find a garden or a park nearby, appreciate the Spring scences,lie on a plot of grass and breathe the natural scent that sent by neighborhood. That's so comfortable!

One of these days I need to get the satillite where you can record shows. Right now it costs too much. There are many shows at night I cant watch because of working nights. So if I record them it would give me something to watch during the day.

I do have six new puppies-anyone need one? free to good home Although they need a good bath. Very hard to get a dog to sit still-but something to do. And I imagine it would be some what fun as I know we would all get wet-lol I use to paint got bored with it. It seems whatever hobby I pick up I get bored with it after a few months. And finding another hobby is the challenge. Sleeping in the grass sounds awesome except for the ticks and chigers-LOL

I'm like to go outdoors and do some physical exercises.for instance climbing ,walking,and running.sometimes I sit down to watch TV and read a book. I think it's really good for us who are always siting in front a computer. we can relax our eyes,and breathe the fresh air.

I went to get tags on my car today. Took about 3 hours. Its nice having something to do. Not saying it was fun but I did enjoy the music and treating myself to dinner.
