Marriage and family blues


Hi! I’m only in my second month of scholars and need help. I have been married for 20 years and have 3 kids. I feel discontent, angry, frustrated, and bored. Every weekend it’s Saturday going to sports for the kids and then Sunday all anyone does is watch baseball and football. I sit around and stew and cook and clean and get more and more angry thinking this is not what I want. But with COVID I don’t know what else to do to make things more interesting. Meet a friend for lunch? Most are afraid of indoor dining and it’s starting to get cold. Go to the mall? And wear a mask all day? Doesn’t sound fun. My extended family isn’t close by and everyone is afraid of catching COVID even though New Jersey has gotten better so it’s always the biggest deal to even invite my brother over. I sound like I’m totally complaining I guess I am but I dream of a different life. I don’t even enjoy working out anymore because I used to like to go to the gym instead of riding the treadmill alone in our basement!
