Used to be: Worked in the yard, a lot. That 'best lawn' thing really meant sumthin
Now: Cut the fuckin thing once a week, trim maybe every 2 weeks. If its not 'the best', who gives a fuck
Used to be: Enjoyed my 'downtime' playing on-line computer games..nightly. It relaxed me....seriously.
Now: Use it to check my e-mail and baseball scores/stats. Occasionally 'borrow' some music I want. Haven't played a game on-line in a couple of months and don't miss it one fuckin bit..even 'porn surfing' has been effected.
Used to be: Spent at least one day a week fixing something (or overseeing it get fixed) at my daughters/parents house. Making sure things were good was as important there as at my house
Now: Drop by every couple of weeks with either little or no intention of making sure everything is in working order. Did try to fix a leaking outside faucet only to end up watching it leak more after I 'fixed' it. So, I hooked up the hose to it and moved it out in the back yard so it didn't leak next to the house. I know..I'm still trying to grasp this myself.
Used to be: Watched every fucking detail of what went on here at work and 'reacted' accordingly.
Now: Pretty much operating under the illusion that the people I have in their jobs are doing things correctly and that they know the company needs to make a profit.
Used to be: Looked forward to planning some late summer/early fall mini-vacation.
Now: Not worth the hassle and the aggravation. Even the baseball trip I just got back from, had fun but the 'pre-trip' excitement just wasn't there.
Used to be: Enjoyed sending Elle dirty texts
Now: Figure I'm just bothering her
