rolling stones

that's B, me and R...
thanks to B's frequent job changes, we have never stayed in one city for long...this is our sixth location, third country, 12th home, all in 17+ years.
while one way of looking at it is the short-period changes that happen in life, every now and then, there is a movement fatigue that has come up... i dread packing, R dreads a new school (her current refrain is she is tired at being new in her school), i have lost the urge of decking up the home (since for how long is that to be the home is not known), R is sick of making new friends (since whenever she talks of a friend, i cannot place where that friend is and she gets upset, saying, "you have no interest in my friends")...one more complaint...
surprisingly, one person is totally unfazed by all of this... the cause, mr B... he gets bored of the same job, same boss, same routine, same place, same roads to drive on, same restaurants to go to every weekend... he was a bohemian in his last birth...
how has he stuck on with the same wife for 17+ years is what i have not understood... am i too great? or is he unversatile? i do not know...
