With a few modifications this is pretty close to what I did in the first 6 months post-w*rk. Some of the stuff never seems to go away (cleaning out stuff, organizing files, selling stuff on public boards, planning trips, taking trips, motorhome maintenance and upgrades, etc.) while some stuff seems to have gotten lost in the noise...going to the gym, doing volunteer work, reading, etc.
All in all, I will take this life to a full time w*rk life any day.
Remember, it is supposed to be fun. If you ain't having fun....do something else. You only go around once in this life so have fun while you can.
If you don't know what is fun then you have some fundamental issues to deal with or ER will be a very very long road.
Find the little kid inside you and let them out. Kids know how to find fun in everything...adults bury this ability but it is still there. Go find your inner kid and let her show you how to have fun again.
