My life… later.

For anyone still following my thoughts on this site… Update: Still Alive. I have become a major couch potato, again. I haven’t had the inspiration for being creative for several months. Even though I’m just a couple of months away from my 35th birthday I often get a giggle when I remind myself that I’m an married adult. I’m by no means a conventional married 30-something guy but it works.
I am spending more of my free time supporting my wife’s creativity. She started a new business with my help in the last year. ( She told me how much she liked painting and ask if she could start taking more classes for fun. I suggested she teach the classes and get paid. That was the spark that really got her going. “Having fun painting, teaching people, hanging out in a group, being the center of attention AND getting paid?? What more could there be in life?!” I think she is hooked and doing very well booking parties left and right.
As for me, when I have a day job I have a really hard time getting excited about doing anything on my day off other than sleeping and being entertained by the internet. I have a nice LCD projector set up in the living room, and use my netbook to watch Hulu, Netflix and We pay the bills, play with the dog, have lots of fun with each other, what more is there? Having your best friend and wife be the same person is terribly convenient. I don’t have to meet up with anyone in any location other than my own home. We make each other laugh so much and really enjoy spending time with each other.
I still have some ideas of creative things to do, but not sure what my spark is going to be. Now may be the best time to start a long project like writing a book. I have a great idea that no one else could steal or replicate. Since I have had held over 45 different jobs in my life I think it could make for interesting reading. I’m sure everyone will be able to find something in it that will relate to their own experience. It will be a marathon of creativity to accomplish and I’m not sure what I’ll do with it after it’s finished, but it will be yet another adventure.
Maybe someday we will buy a house and have kids. Maybe someday I will get my act together and seek a career instead of living paycheck to paycheck and crappy job to crappy job. Until then, life is good.
