What the fuck am I supposed to do now?

Last year, probably around this time, I felt like I was having a bit of a mid (quarter?) life crisis. I solved that (e.g. distracted myself) by house hunting and buying a bigger place. And then I started feeling this manic madness again around the holidays. I was able to stave off partial insanity by our super cool vacation to Vancouver and some flying tomato ass banging. But now it's back.

What the fuck do I do now?

Mr. FGD said this is why people have kids. Is that why? You just get so fucking bored with your life and your marriage that you decide, why not fuck up some kids along the way?

Is that what happens?

Answers, please. Before insanity ensues.

Maybe a new hobby? Or a new handbag? ;)

when I had my quarter life crisis I quit my job. :) That could work for you. More time for shopping.

Just remember: more kids = less money for fabulous hangbags and shoes.

Ummmmm yah don't have a kid... seriously (and I wrote DOG instead of kid the first time around so what's that telling you? haha) I have three and they just drive you more insane... so go on another vacation, take lots of pictures... WAY less stressful ;)

This is why I started running marathons. I do want kids (and we are most definitely trying) but I know that kids aren't going to solve the quarter life crisis. Good luck. Plan more trips. Or blog more? We like reading.

I'm thinking a new car? or a different kind of "fur" baby - like a turtle?

I sometimes wonder when a couple makes the decision to have kids. What drives that decision? Sometimes, I think, well that's the next logical step. But that can't be the ONLY reason to have kids, right?

You could move to a new state every year? That seems to work for us and then it wears off as soon as we get there. I'm with dipite. Maybe running or something? I'm starting the couch to 5k...just for something to do. Or, you could always shop.

I swear I just feking spit out my tea reading your blog. LMAO.

Word for word I have totally thought the same thing before.

No- I don't believe that's why all people have kids but I do think that's one of the reasons why some/most people have kids. Come on people own up to it.

Should you have kids just cause you're bored?no.

Should you have kids because damn you're ridiculously gorgeous and smart and your hubs isn't bad looking guy either (and you both are very smart people) and you want to grace the world with a hybrid of your presence.. now that's a more legit reason.

Added bonus is you actually long to be a mom. Does your hubs want to be a dad? From his comment it sounds like it.

Why don't ya'll talk about it?

As far as what to do about boredom:

Set some goals and attain them. Nothing is better for the self esteem or boredom my dear. :)

New hobby? Kids are expensive.

If your kid is anything like mine, you'd want 10. ...but I may be kinda biased. Maybe you should stick to shoes.
