Both my kids are now in school (8:40 - 2:40) and I feel like I need something more.

Now that my youngest has started preschool I get that a bit too, the "what are you going to do now?" types of questions. Lol, my initial answer was that I was going to clean the living room. Then go clean the kitchen. Then come back after cleaning the kitchen and look at the living room be STILL CLEAN. Anyone with little kids knows that you can't tell it was cleaned five minutes after you cleaned it.

When your husband asks you at night "what are you up to tomorrow?" he probably isn't asking in a backhanded way of implying that you've got nothing to do so you might as well go get a paying job. Geez, unless he's a complete moron, he has to know that it's not sit around doing nothing all day! He knows that his clothes don't magically clean and put away themselves right? That there isn't a grocery fairy that buys and cooks all the food? That the power and water and mortgage don't all pay themselves? That the toilet isn't spotless white because it's flushed? As a full time at home mom you're a driver, cook, housekeeper, financial manager, nurse, corrections officer, mediator, counselor, teacher, judge and jurry. Just to name a few. You've got enough jobs to do to keep a dozen people busy.
