Yes it's normal. I felt the same way years ago.
Looking back, I should have gathered more outside interests for myself. Got away on a girls vacation or traveled and done things on my own. I should have encouraged my H to do the same.
In that way, we would have come home and brought new ideas/adventures to the table. It would have given us space or a break to appreciate each other more.
The day to day grind with the same person is just that.....the same. The annoying behaviors only change with your own perception. It's how you feel that day or what you are willing to tolerate.
I've been there.....
