It is freezing cold out side maybe 20 degrees so no going outside to do some kind of work. Have the house cleaned and dinner planned. It is 3:30pm I don't care to watch too mcuh TV. My sewing machine is broke so can't sew. My arm is still hurting from being broke in October so not much else I can do. If it wasn't for the typing my arm would hurt even more. I just plain don't know what else to do but lay down and go to sleep. Played a computer game for a bit an am tired of it. Can't seem to find a discussion I wish to spend time on. So what do you do when your bored? What time is it when you finally give up?

For me weekend doesn't have any activity and it's the time for me to take a rest after a long week of work. When i get bored I usually play online games, when I also get bored playing online games, I will go to sleep and will just wake up if it's already lunch or dinner LOL sounds lazy right? When I'm already full, I will play games again or watch tv just to kill my boredom

Hi XX. I am retired and have a lot of time on my hands mostly I keep pretty busy. But when the weather is nasty outside I can't get out and work in the yard. Which I love doing because it is a good work out not only is it a work out but makes our yard look really good. I keep a pretty clean house but there are some things I don't do as often as I should I don't dust everyday even though it wouldn't help much to dust everyday cause we live out in the boonies and it is very dusty around here.....LOL I play games online too mainly http://www.coolmath-games.com/0-gemswap2/index.html but after reaching level 19 I usually don't get past that so I get bored with it. What kinds of other games do you play? You told me of one of the games you play but I don't join sites to play games.

i seldom get bored because i have a lot of interests. if i ever get bored, i will read or watch a movie. my hubby bought me a tablet for our 25th anniversary and i can do so many things with it. i can download books from the library with it, listen to music, listen to the radio, go on the internet and so on. i also do a lot of crafty things so i always have something crafty to work on. right now i am decorating a picture frame with a bunch of tiny shells and also crocheting a scarf plus i want to do a little bit of cross stitching too. i also need to clean out my craft area and make a few cards too.

Hi Cher. It is nice to have so much to do but I just couldn't get my mind on doing anything that day. My arm has been giving me a lot of pain these days I don't do any pain pills don't want to get addicted to anything. I just couldn't get my mind to want to do anything. Been wanting to get out and work in my flower gardens but the weahter was so bad and didn't want to get out in it.....LOL Anyway I finally did have a day of 60 degree weather and got to do at least 4 of them. Needed to weed them and put some fresh mulch on them so they will look good all spring and summer.

When I am bored, I can do a few things..read a book, text message a friend, play a few games online (chocolatier is the best game ever!)or get online and post on discussions..after a while, that might get boring too so I get some toys together and play with my son..its usually pretty late at night by the time I get through with a few of those..

Hi MissBlack and welcome to my lot. I don't have text message on my phone anymore and I never chat on those things like yahoo. Did that once and it got me almost in trouble. My children are all grown and live in other states. I usually don't have time to get bored but when I want to do something and can't do it bothers me to no end till I finally get it done.

Oh well. I guess I will do cross stitching or write reviews. I think it's been years since I got bored. I always have lots of things to do that I don't even know how to squeeze it in my schedule. But you are right, sometimes there are no interesting discussions to join. But I have so many windows that are open that even if there are no interesting discussions here, I am still able to join on other sites.

Hi Greenthumb and welcome to my lot. I usually have so much to do I don't have time to get bored either but this day it was just one of those days I couldn't get interested in anything. I don't join other sites one reason is I don't have that much time to spend here on my lot much less time to spend on other sites. I have so much work I can get done outside if the weather will corporate. But the weather has been nice one day and the next we have rain and cold weather.

I have a ton of books that I like to read when I have nothing else to do... Reading passes the time. I don't get bored too often, with 3 kids to take care of there's not much time for boredom! lol. I read, come here, do laundry, clean, take care of my kids...Not much time to get bored.

Hi LovingMyBabies. I too have so much stuff to do I really don't have the time to be bored. But since I broke my arm I just can't do as much as I normally would do. I get most of the stuff done but need help with a few things. I had all my chores done and it was too miserable to be outside that day that I wrote this discussion.

I feel bored a lot of the time as well and I will say that time seems to drag if you feel bored. I just wish that the weather would warm up, so that I could go out side to sit in the garden, as I feel that these four walls are not really helping me at all much.I am stuck in doors all day, as unwell and am sick of it now.I use to go to sleep to pass the time away as I was that bored, well in pain as well, then would find that when I got up I felt the same was again as in bored.

Hi Jugsjugs. I know what you mean about the time dragging on and on and seems like it will never end. I am so sick of this weather being too cold to do anything outside. I wish I could get out and work in my flower beds or get started on the garden. I can hardly wait till the garden is growing again this year. I am going to can a lot this year. I am hoping and praying that my arm is all better when the weather gets better so I can work in the yard. Seems like the weather being so cold it makes me sleepy. I can't sleep good anyway cause I can't sleep on my arm. And not finding much of anything to respond to I am not really inspired by my lot discussions these days. Thinking of going to older discussions to see if there is anything I haven't responded to.

I never get bored, I always have something to do or think about. We have so much tech today, I do not know how you can possibly get bored - Maybe you could explain that

It was -2 here for several days. It is 45 right now and has been in the 30's for days now. I do research and surf the web when I am bored. Always something new and different on here. I am so addicted. And if I get real bored i will go on Facebook and place some of the games.

Hi Celticeagle. Wow only 2 that is pretty bad. It has been down to the lower 2 digits here but not as low as it has been where you are. I used to enjoy finding new things on the net. But not much that I haven't looked up. I am not on face book the reason the news has been showing all kinds of bad things about that site. So I stay on my lot or play gem swap but after playing it for so long I get bored with it. Thanks for sharing.

Well then go to bed for a while. If it's cold I like to have some extra sleep. To be honest I am never bored. I have plenty of things to do besides of cleaning up, painting for example.

Hi WakeUpKitty. I have plenty to do but with my arm so sore I just plain don't want to do much of anything. I have cleaned till I am bored with it. I like my home clean, not too clean to be comfortable, I have two dogs and they can't be outside when it is cold. I don't want them to be cold either. I have lots of things to sew but with my sewing machine on the fritz I don't want to sew anything. I would rather do something with my time then to sleep too much. What kinds of things do you paint?
