    And by all the Gods how I hate it.

    Isolated from my friends and family, no conversation beyond babbling. Same whinging and complaining, same games, same tears. Every. Single. Day. I used to be the bread winner, the provider for my family. Now that's gone. I barely see another adult, I can't even remember the...

    The tables have turned,

    Have been staying home to look

    Perfect Life

    Another day, stuck at home with two kids

    and three cats, bored, talking to myself again. I'm so used to not being free, I don't know what I would do if I was. Get in the car and drive away, very far, see things. I've been a stay-at-home dad for what, eight years now? I don't even remember how to socialize. And when...
