I am lazy. I am in a rut.

I am lazy. I have no drive. I am 31 years old. I will turn 32. I am married with two kids. I still play video games. I am disgusted that I play video games at 32 years of age. It's shameful I know. But I can't help it.
Let me explain. For long periods of time I will find myself in a rut. I recognzie my state. Then I will say to myself "enough of this". I will mend my ways. I will do everything that I feel will help me get better:
1) I will wake up early
2) I will do my home office work diligently
3) Spend less time on the internet
Then, I will drop off again. Rinse. Repeat. Rinse.
I quit watching TV a long time ago. But I still watch my favorite hockey team. I quit TV, but I am hooked on the net. I recently got a add-on for FF called Time Tracker. It tells me how my time I spend on the internet. Eg: Since Mar 3, 2010 I have spent 47 hours on the internet. Mind you, I hardly do anything productive on the net. Email. Garbage sites. Rinse. Repeat. But I am addicted.
I have a habit of buying books in the hopes of reading them. I have bought almost all the classics. I have great great authors on my shelves. I just don't have the drive to read them.
Why not? I have no idea. I am lazy. I hate being in this state. I hate being a dabbler. One day nice, the next day, I am even worse.
And there are so many things I have to improve upon. I tell myself this everyday. But I hardly get around to doing it.
