Help me not go stir crazy

So, I just fractured my left tibia and fibula. I'll be on crutches with a knee immobilizer for the next six weeks or so and I live in third floor walk up apartment (with rickety banisters). Any tips for what to do to keep myself occupied and not focused on the injury?

Complicating this issue is the fact that I just graduated from school on an off semester, so my friends all still have classes and I was job searching (which I guess needs to go on hold). My husband is home in the evenings and my mom lives about an hour away by subway, but I don't want to disrupt her life totally. I have my laptop, and books, and a nook where I can purchase new ebooks, and working cable TV. I guess I'm really asking to hear from people who have gone through/ are in similar circumstances and how you make it work. Thanks!
