You know you've been housebound when ...

You know you've been housebound when you have no idea what day or date it is.

You know you've been housebound when you have no idea what the weather is like (although who's guessing, it's between 107 Degrees & 117 I'm sure).

You know you've been housebound when you primp to go out and get the mail (and this is the only way you know what the weather is like).

And ........

You know you've been housebound when ... you're watching a sitcom with your husband and you laugh hard outloud ... and the sitcom joke you laughed at was so dumb that your husband looks over at you and honestly asks 'What?' ..... and you sheepishly say, 'well I thought that joke was funny .... at the time'

(I'm sure some of you have a million 'You know you've been housebound when .....' - any challengers?)

Totally. The first week I was home with Julian, Art and the kids would tell me how horribly hot it was outside and I'd look out the window once in a while and think 'It doesn't look that hot to me, in fact I feel nice and cool, how can it really be that hot?'. Forgetting that just a short week prior, I'd been the sweltering pig all day.

You know you've been housebound when you follow your husband into the bathroom after he gets home from work for a little conversation... haha I seriously did that.

Melanie - that is funny - I uh may have already been doing that before being housebound! Shoot! -where do I go from here? haha

Wow Melanie - I laughed out loud at yours and I must say, I am with Breanne in that I think that I did that even before I was "housebound." The thing with quiet husbands is that you get so desparate for them to say something, anything that you don't care when (in the middle of the night when you are trying to sleep) or where!
