Came across a poem today, 
written by Robert Blandings.  
I'd say it just about sums up my life in
 a well-written poem (just change the gender, 
and this could be my life!)

THE DOUBLE LIFE
How very simple life would be
If only there were two of me:
A Restless Me to drift and roam;
A Quiet Me to stay at home.
A Searching One to find his fill
Of varied skies and newfound thrill,
While sane and homey things are done
By the domestic Other One.

And that's just where the trouble lies,
There is a Restless Me that cries
For chancy risks and changing scene,
For arctic blue and topic green,
For deserts with their mystic spell,
For lusty fun and raising Hell.
But shackled to that Restless Me-
My Other Self rebelliously
Resists the frantic urge to move.

It seeks the old familiar groove
That habits make.  It find content
With hearth and home -- dear prisonment,
With candlelight and well-loved books,
And treasured loot in dusty nooks.

With puttering and garden things
And dreaming while a cricket sings.
And all the while the Restless One
Insists on more exciting fun:
It wants to go with every tide,
No matter where...just for the ride.
Like yowling cats the two selves brawl
Until I have no piece at all.

One eye turns to the forward track,
The other eye looks sadly back.
I'k getting wall-eyed from the strain,
(It's tough to have an idle brain)
But One says "Stay" and One says "Go"
And One says "Yes" and One says "No".
And One Self wants a home and wife
And One Self craves the drifters's life.

The Restless Fellow always wins..
I wish my folks had made me twins.
