A story by the Washington Post takes a look at what Mitt Romney‘s life has become since the election. He’s evidently suffering from “sustained boredom.”

But he’s keeping in touch with friends and those who donated big dollars to his campaign:

Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There’s no aide to make his peanut-butter-and-honey sandwiches. Romney hangs around the house, sometimes alone, pecking away at his iPad and e-mailing his CEO buddies who have been swooping in and out of La Jolla to visit. He wrote to one who’s having a liver transplant soon: “I’ll change your bedpan, take you back and forth to treatment.”
