While I leave the future entirely in Lord's hands, it would appear that I will be a stay at home dad for the foreseeable future. This has proven to be a bit of a blow to the ego, as I have been employed non-stop since I was 14. (12 if you count mowing lawns) Sooo, I'm heading back to school online, going to do some free-lance webdesign and other side-ventures to bring in some sort of income as my wife starts her career in cosmetology. So if there's any other SAHD's out there, what do you guys do to cope with the inherent emasculating feeling? Also, what do you try to do for fun? Since we bought our house 5 years ago, I've been so consumed with work, that the physical list of things to be done is enormous, so I don't need help 'passing the time'. Between school, business opportunities, and watching my 3 kids, I got the responsibility side of things handled. And I'm not anticipating having oodles of time on my hands. I know at some point, though, I will need a break from the daily to-do-list I give myself and need low-cost or free ideas to mix things up in the fun department. Just curious if there's any activities or past-times that help ya'll get through a day. Keep it light, I've already been in (and now thankfully out of) the depths of emotional, mental and spiritual hell, so save your condemnation for another day...I'm my own worst enemy in that regard. After all, a regional gun forum probably isn't the best place to go around making enemies, now is it? j/k.
