On my way home from work yesterday I had a strange "am I living?" type of feeling. I was thinking about what our evening was to entail: hanging around the house with the kids, eating dinner, and maybe a movie on netflix. The same as any other night. Then I thought back to all the things I've done in the past and how they seemed inconsequential at the time, but so much more entertaining now. Trips at the drop of a hat, hiking up mountains just because they're there, spending weeks on end at friends' houses, all night programming benders between work and school. Hell, even just building an arcade machine.

Right now, my life is that I go to work, I go to sleep, and I try to work on the basement in the interim or at least do a little hanging out with Kirby while the kids sleep.

I'm sure it'll get interesting again soon, with summer coming, and the kids getting bigger. But life seemed so much more interesting when responsibilities were fewer.

I've been feeling the same way. I think that's why I've been so focused on planning a vacation. We may still be on the same schedule but at least we'll have a change of scenery.

We are in the same routine/rut in the Pintler household. I am not so sure my life was anymore interesting 10 years ago, but I was drunk a lot more often in a lot more places.
