No KIds, but between going into work earlier or staying later for some ot can't turn it down when it's offered rarely. Or different schedules with the wife that you come home to cook dinner, pick her up and it's already 9 - 10 o'clock at night. The only saving grace is the holidays being on a weekend this years, getting that following monday off. I can crash on the couch so easily. We'll here's to the winter and staying home frequently when it's cold out.
Ive been tasting that bitter demon for awhile as well. Sometimes on weekends while playing guilt washes over me that im playing instead of playing with the kids and it pulls me away from the tv. As I get older it seems I let the start screen linger... and linger... and linger. And after the kids go to bed its the same choice for me, sleep or tired day tomorrow. But ya know sometimes its still worth it to brew up a hot cup o joe and dig into some bioware or black ops or what have you. If you dont make time for the things that keep you young youll wither away that much faster. But I totally feel the pain. I totally feel the PAIN.
I think I turned my Xbox on once in the past week and a half... funny that I can't even remember when the last time I gamed was. Work has been Hell. I was finally given approval to hire another person, so hopefull I won't have to feel the need to work from home so much. When I am not working from home, I am then helping the kids with homework, working on the house, or giving a futile attempt to catch up on the DVR.
Same here. No kids, but you go through those bits where gaming just isn't interesting. I turned on the box last night for the first time in 6 days or so.
I haven't even had a chance to turn on my 360 in 10 days.
Same here; the kids eat up all my free time (not that I'm really complaining about my kids, that's just how my schedule is now.) I don't really like to start gaming past 9:30 on a weeknight and of course on friday and saturday nights I crash out early because I'm tired from working all week. Yep, starting to feel old.
