I see the last posts were from September. Typical for a guys discussion forum, I suppose. Anyway, I'm a dad to 2 little guys (6,3). Looking for a place to hangout, get some support and shoot the shit. Life has been pretty lonely the past few months. We recently got out of the military and are getting settled in at home. We live near my wife's family (which we did before joining the service 5 years ago). I'm enjoying my job, but I'm the youngest by far and all my same aged peers are those I supervise. A coupe of friends I had before moving were from school and we lost touch. I'm sure in time I'll find my place, but there is little time between work, commute, and kiddos. W isn't all that social and she spends most of her time with her family so I do by extension.
I'm finding with little time to myself, to socialize, or be as active as I'd like (I'm a runner or maybe former runner is more accurate these days and enjoy working out) I'm feeling sluggish and irritable. I hate that my day consists of work, dinner, homework with DS1, bath time, bedtime routine and by then I'm so exhausted and frustrated I'm yelling at the kids. I'd love to be getting up early to workout, but it just doesn't happen. It's a process and I'll get back there. I'm planning on joining a running club in the spring and have cleaned out a space in the garage to workout. So, I guess I'm prepping for a life change. I've also found some relief in taking a few minutes to myself before putting the kids to bed. A short reset helps to remember they aren't trying to be A-holes, they are just kids who are tired and tired kids tend to act like A-holes.
Yeah...so I really got nothing, just wanted to pop in and see if there were more than crickets here.
