101 Things To Do At Home When You’re Bored

Are you bored? Are you unable to participate in your favourite activities? Are you stuck in the house and running out of things to do? Do you want pancakes? If this sounds like you, then you’ve clicked on the right blog.

Hi, I’m Paul. You may remember me from such blog posts as, “The Refrigerator Was Running, But Now It’s Walking” and “How To Teach Your Pet To Win At Bingo”.

But if you don’t remember me from those posts, that’s okay, I haven’t written them…yet. The important thing is that you’re here now, listening to me talk in your head as you read the words I wrote.

They say that home is where the heart is, but for the next few months, home is where you and your family members will be. Fun. Naturally, boredom is bound to set in.

Therefore, I have created a list of things you can do at home when you’re bored. If you are unable to do some of these tasks, for whatever reason, I do not care. This is not about you; this is about everyone. NOW STOP GOING OUTSIDE.

Sorry, natural reflex.

About Paul

I think of my blog as an all-you-can-read buffet. There's something for everyone and complimentary mints at the door as you leave.

      Haha I think when I yelled don’t go outside, it was more directed at those who aren’t staying home and isolated themselves. You can definitely go outside for fresh air! It just didn’t make the cut for my list haha

      • LOL okies, good! I have a LOVELY 50 minute walk right now. So refreshing and amazing. Goodness! And now I have my window open sitting here getting colder and colder for about another 10 minutes and then I’ll close up once more since I don’t want to over work the furnace haha

        This just gave me another idea: If you walk past someone on the sidewalk, open an umbrella at them so they’re forced to keep their distance!

      • HAHA I passed a few people but most crossed the street. Like I think they were going down different streets ANYWAY but ya know, whatever. Maybe I just smelled bad from so far away? Who knows! I’ll take my umbrella with me tomorrow.

    Isn’t Windexing 3 mirrors cheating? It’s essentially the same activity done 3 times. LOL 😂

    Defying gravity as I write this. Almost too easy. I don’t have a pet though. I do have a small child. She’s quite similar to a pet in many ways. Is this an acceptable alternative?

    Omg, Paul, 101 things only?
    Anyway, I don’t get to be bored so much as I work remotely and keep myself busy around the house, cleaning, washing, ironing and cooking. Besides I got the blog and write from time to time.
    But yeah, you made me wanna cook pancakes again and try different stuff.

    Thank you for sharing and making me laugh. 😂
