How did I get here?

Rewind one year:
Active social life- spending all weekend out with friends and most weeknights.
Serious romantic prospects.
Working overtime (loved job) = lots of extra cash to do fun stuff.
Involved in Ward

Fast forward to Present:
No social life- spending weekends at home - decided what movie to watch tonight and ordering pizza?
OR babysitting for brother and sister (but do love the wee babies).
No romantic prospects.
Working "full time" -hard to focus on work (disinterested)
Moved away from old ward-new ward not as good and starting to attend old ward.

Does anyone get the feeling that I've taken two steps back? Because, I sure do!

I don't think you've taken two steps back. I went through a period of time like that myself, and it wasn't a ton of fun, but it forced me to find new ways to fill my time and in the end it helped me in a lot of ways. You'd be surprised how many people are sitting at home alone on a Friday night. Maybe you should just pick a couple of random people and call them up. They might wishing the phone would ring, too. Or if you don't want to do that, find some really good movies!

I spent 99% of my pre-married life like that. It can be a good time for growth if you let it be. And it won't always stay like this. Take time to focus on yourself, your spiritual growth, etc. You probably won't have an opportunity like this again, at least not for a really long time. Heavenly Father will bless us with what we need.
