Read books, had conversations, wrote letters, house projects, take walks, swim, horse back ride, snow mobile, visit friends, etc.
You got it. lol
Your parents did all that? lol
When I was bored and complained to my mom she would offer all sorts of unwanted suggestions: clean your room, read a book, etc..
But what did your parents do? lol
Mom: watched soap operas and drank
Dad: watched sports and drank
My Mom took care of her big family. Dad worked all the time.
My mom cooked, cleaned and took care of 3 kids. My dad worked then came home and did guy stuff.
