Hrrrrrmmmm, Binderlips and I will sometimes take road trips to places that are from 3-6 hours (driving-wise) away and stay in a Bed & Breakfast. That usually is a good (and cheap) get away. As for hobbies - how about photography or painting? Just a few suggestions, I hope it helps. :)You'll get out of the rut soon, we all get in them and seem to find our ways out somehow. :)
Don't join the Army. They don't need bright JAG officers.
