    Re-reading the pros and cons list

    We have been to oz a few times now and currently 2yrs into our latest stint here with a view to returning home sometime within the next 12mths.The decision to return was an easy one for us but we still sat and made the pros and cons list just to be sure we were all on the same page and would have no regrets later down the road. Yesterday I re-read that list and compared it to the list we made before moving here.Boy was that an eye-opener.One of the things we did was write a diary entry each day for two weeks about what we did that day and how it felt etc..we did this before each decision and the kids also did this.Reading back through both the most noticable aspect is how mundane our life here seems compared to there and the lack of humour in our writings. Has anyone else re-read their list and thought "Wow,has life become so uneventful?Have we become so boring?"Even the kids diary entries have so little in them,so little to write about,struggled to fill a page a day whereas in ireland their books were overflowing. Was making such a list an eye-opener for anyone else?My husband,an aussie,often makes one comment when talking about how life here compares to what we left behind,he says..'How the mighty have fallen,from living life to just existing because of one fateful decision'. Not sure if this makes any sense to others,just having one of those days I suppose and wondering if anyone else has experienced the same.
