On days I'm alone with our daughter I have to plan activities or I'd go crazy. The best are things I need/want to do. Like visiting friends, going for a walk or bike ride, going food shopping, going to an art museum. Plus, I find she's less cranky and more observant/occupies with just looking around when we're out and about. We also watch TV on those days (basically never do otherwise) but it's only things I want to watch, like cooking shows or nature shows. Also, having the radio or podcasts on can make just hanging out at home a lot more interesting.
