Methinks you have the blahs because your M7 and M9 are too similar in functionality and handling, differing only in output media.
If you're up for a challenge, get an inexpensive user Barnack and have fun mastering it.. dim desilvered misaligned viewfinder, sluggish shutter speeds, cracked light leaking curtains, funky trimmed film leader bottom loading, reverse curl film advance, the whole ball of wax.
It's like a long drive on a country road. The destination doesn't matter, it's the sights and smells along the way.
