The Eroding of 9 to 5

Lord please don't get me wrong when I say I'm stir crazy due to my 9-5 day job because I really appreciate having almost full time work this summer with a job that pays decent enough. Yet I can't help but say how it's slowly getting to my brain.
Sitting in front of a computer from 9 to 5 (with MANY bathroom breaks to split up the time) and typing away can lead to silly and nonsense thinking. I've perfected the ability to hear what's being said, type it up at high speed, all the while thinking about something completely none related such as what should I cook for super, I wonder what food we have left in the house, I think I'm becoming a better cook now, I wish I could sew a bit more, I should start that quilt up again I want that done by summer, well after I get my student loan forms filled out, got to get that done before we move...and the list goes on.
All the while hardly speaking to a soul....
Is it possible that one can slowly erode into a lifeless blob with only an ounce of creativity left? Cause I think this job is eroding me away

I know what you mean by the 9-5 thing. I sit at a computer all day and when it is slow I can't stand being there all day.
