I'm bored

It occurred to me today that I'm bored. Most mornings I wake up, excited to start my day, but then nothing is really engaging other than my little family (the youngest member of which has been a handful lately).

First there's work. It's kind of a perfect storm of boring right now, while a new manager is coming in, and I'm in a weird limbo state interviewing for a new position but not getting any feedback at all about what their plans are.

My social life is kind of poor right now, too. In fact, it entirely revolves around Cedar Point, because it's the only place I ever see anyone. That's not a bad thing, it's just that the social interaction outside these four walls during the week is pretty much limited to the bartender at the Winking Lizard, where I have lunch once or twice a week. Her quitting smoking is going well, if you're curious.

My little software projects are actually kind of interesting, but I do need a break from them. Project "ServerMetric" is actually going pretty well, and I'm up to the point where I need to write code to take money and then make it pretty. I think it's the first thing I've written from scratch ever, for myself, that has had to be "day job" quality, so some of it is a little tedious.

I haven't been playing tennis, or video games. I haven't shot any video lately or done any screenplay writing. It's like I'm too bored to do any of those things! I'm not unhappy or depressed or anything, I just can't get engaged.

Obviously, I need a vacation, and I plan to take one very soon.
