Yep, totally not as fun as it used to be.
Even when it was JUST my husband and I hanging out in the garage all
night, blasting music and playing darts until 3AM, that was fun.
Now the kids want to play with us, but they SUCK at darts and I get way too
frustrated WAITING for them to shoot, then miss, then try again that I just
WAH! 44yo throwing a tantrum.
Sitting on the couch, watching TV and drinking a bottle of wine is boring as all
get out. And that's what we've been doing the past eon passage of time. Snore.
I'll pass, and "save it" until we either go out, or the kids MOVE out.
Bwahahahahaha! They're 8 and 11, soooooo, unless they emancipate themselves. . . . nyuck, nyuck.
It's funny though, we live at the bottom of a very long court. They have electric scooters, bikes,
electric go karts, skates, roller blades, skateboards, regular scooters, etc. You name it, my kids
But where would they rather be? Flanking myself and my husband, wanting to do what WE'RE doing,
even if it's just sitting in folding chairs on the driveway! GAH!
Reminds me of when I moved out when I was 18 - got myself a 6 week old black lab lickety split.
Everyone told me I'd have to find a place with a HUGE YARD for that dog.
And I did. I lived in shithole after shithole (total of moving 13 times in 16yrs) so I could
keep my dog and she'd have somewhere to frolic around day after day.
But yanno, in the end, dogs, like children, couldn't give six shits what they have or how big
the yard is. They want YOU YOU YOU, at ALL TIMES.
We could have lived in a cardboard BOX and the dog would have been happy.
Same with the kids.
So all y'all with no dogs or kids yet, there's some l'arnin' for you. DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!
Okay, rant over, so yeah, back to drinking... not so much fun anymore.
Mix in the care of kids, and, well, it's not like anyone can get stupid shitfaced lampshade on
the head drunk anymore anyway. Gots to be responsible yanno! Kid may need to be rushed
to the ER at 3AM!
