I am rather bored now.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to un-bore myself?

Ponder these questions thrice;

What was the last great experience that you had?

What is the greatest achievement you have ever done (children not included)?

What would you like to achieve within the next two years?

Now go write it all down

get up from whatever you are doing (or not doing) and do something else - if you are sitting at your desk at work, offer to run an errand, file those pesky letters, photo copy, clean out the fridge... anything but what you are supposed to be doing.

If you are at home - get up from the couch/bed and go out for a walk, go for a drive, go to youtube and find a "how to make" or "how to fix" vids and learn how to debone a chicken and keep it whole (yeah, don't try that one - it' doesn't work), or how to fry the perfect scrambled eggs (any excuse to see gordon ramsey), or how to use mail merge or change a pipe or put up drywall or...

I just spent several minutes looking at this and trying to remember the last time I was bored. I'm a writer. I am NEVER bored! :)

So that's my advice, make up a story in your head.

Kipling could be a horror sometimes; but he had a way of hitting the nail on the head.

A couple of things: First off, it's ok to be bored sometimes. A little idleness can help us recharge and face new challenges.

Second, take some time to figure out what motivates you. For me, I know that I love to learn new things. My cure for boredom is to pick up a new challenge, whether it's writing a new kind of program or learning a new programming language or technology. Look at yourself and see what you have been doing when you aren't bored. When you are totally engaged on something. That's your clue for how to deal with your current boredom.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. -Mark Twain

OP, you are the mother of a 3 year old. Are you sure he isn't off somewhere being "too quiet?"  ;D ;D ;D ;D

For unboredomizing:

Those will pretty much take care of any extra time you have. Enjoy!

I was bored on my lunch break lol.
 
I found a book I haven't read for a while and just sat and read that!
 
Then I was busy all afternoon.  No chance of being bored today...!  :)
