How to cure boredom at home?

My husband and I find ourselves without things to do together in the evenings after he gets through working and the kids are in bed. Please if you have any at-home suggestions we would greatly appreciate it.

Update:

Sorry, I wasn't specific.....we watch movies together every night before bed. I meant other than that. I appreciate all suggestions though, other than get creative.

    My husband and I both like to cook. What about one evening a week make an exotic desert and taste test it over a glass of wine? It sounds dumb, but you will be playing together and talking.

    And, believe it or not my husbands grandparents' had a lifelong scrabble game going on until his death. I hear it was anticipated every evening.

    Or, begin work on the house. Pick a room to renovate and take all the time in the world to make it perfect for you.

    Or discuss religion and politics - (never mind).

    my husband and I like to go for walks. I know it may not be possible since the children are in bed and you have to stay home. You could play cards, a board game, or just sit out in the back yard and talk. We have a fire pit and my husband and I will pull our lawn chairs around the pit and just sit back with a glass of wine and just talk. We have some great conversations doing that.

    Do you work? I feel there are many things to do at home more when you have kids,laundry,dishes,pay bills, so many, when do you do this? if this is done already, can you expend time just talking to your husband about work, your family future, the kids so many things to talk about it, don't do the same thing all the time because this is the worse, another thing you can do is hire someone to stay with the kids when they sleep and you guys can go out and do other things, you can go to the gym, you need time off from home, look for help in the house and go out, can someone help you with this?

    Get a pal to proportion a while with you. It is traditional to move via what you're however you'll repair it. Volunteer at a clinic or historic men and women dwelling and it'll fairly make you suppose well approximately your self. Read greater books and you will not be bored. eight~)

    We always managed to keep ourselves so occupied with school activities, volunteer work, and neighborhood programs that it never occurred to me that anyone could find time to be bored. My thought is that you really need to come out of your cozy little nitch and get interested in the world outside.

    How about puzzles? putting puzzles together will also allow freedom to talk while you do it.
