Just a phase???

So that last couple of days I've been feeling really blah. I had a week off work, which was niceish. This week I was in the most boring training class ever invented by man (cost benefit analysis, which my boss thought I should take, even though I don't need it for my job). I had an interview on wednesday which I thought went well. Hopefully I get one of the jobs the interview was for. It'd be a nice change of pace and a nice boost in salary (another $12k a year never hurt no one), also a step up to actual management/supervisory postion from being a team leader now.

My thing is I feel super blah. Maybe partly from a painfuly boring training class. Maybe from being cooped up with my family for almost 10 days with little reprieve. I met a woman in my training class who is a lot of fun and extrodinarily single (really cute too). No, I am not getting "cheating urges", far from it. But, it was a lot of fun grabbing lunch with her today and chatting during class breaks (including standing the hall talking with her for about an hour when we should have been in class), but more then anything it made me jealous of her being single. I love my wife and son, but there are times I'd love to be able to do whatever I want. Just head out from work at the end of the day and grab dinner and some beers, go backpacking on the spur of the moment, hang out with whoever I want, whenever I want, that sort of thing, okay and maybe a little bit of me would love to have the ability to just be interested in whomever I want of the opposite sex..

I don't really want to be single, being married and being a father really is so much better, but man there are times I painfully want to be single, even if it is just for a week.

Not in ages. I think part of it for me is that my wife stays at home with my son all day long and I 'get out' by being at work. My wife suggested I do give a couple of my guy friends a call and go out for drinks. I think I am probably going to do that in the next few days.

This. No children on my end yet, but I have been married for a few years and I have found this to be a huge help for me. I grab my buddies and head out for a few hours on the weekends. Long training rides on bikes, working on your car, go kart racing.....whatever you do just do what YOU want to do and have fun. After spending damn near every waking hour with my wife for a few years, I was going crazy.

Re: Just a phase???

i'd make sure the wife has the same opportunity.
she can get "in a rut" too.
