From the Mailbag: Hey, You Know What's Boring? Separation, that's What...

Milspouse Heather has a problem. It's called boredom....

I had a question and was wondering if you could help me out...My husband just re-enlisted (after a 5 year break in service), and is in training in Oklahoma, then he goes to Benning, and then we get our duty station.  We have two kids, ages 8 and 10, who go to bed at 8:30. 

My husband has now been gone 12 weeks, and won't be home until after Thanksgiving.  I know it's not long in comparison, but I haven't done this for a long time, and forgot how slowly the time can pass.

So my question is, after laundry, time on the treadmill, and tv, what is there I can do at night to pass the time?  The last two nights by 9:30 I was bored out of my mind.  And my civilian friends here are supportive, but have their own lives, so I don't feel like I can call on them to entertain me.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
