Ever Evolving

I've been a bit spiritless in regards to this blog lately. I'm not done writing, I've just been so uninspired. I get ideas at work during the day and I'm writing them down but when I sit in front of blogger I just don't seem to get any posts done, most of the time I don't even really get started.

I've been going through a lot of changes over the last few months. We've welcomed two new babies into the family, hubby got a job, I graduated training at work and have moved into my officle and I've been receiving new threats from my sorry ass ex who can't seem to move on with his life, and more. So much has been going on I'm not sure how I'm going to survive during the day when I finally get a chance to slow down.

In the midst of all that I've been working on setting up a yoga room at home too. I have a home gym I'm going to set up in there but I know me, I'll be doing yoga and likely won't use the gym. Hubby will use that.

I must say life feels really different working for a Fortune 500 company. I've had good jobs, worked for multi-national corporations and none of them were anything like this. Or maybe it's just this company. We're showered with gifts and opportunities unlike anything I've ever seen. I've made some very interesting friends too. I think I just may have finally found a place I feel like I could stay in for the long term.

Hubby likes his job too. I have to giggle a bit because he tells me stories when he comes home and one of the things he was most surprised about is how encouraging his coworkers are. He said it doesn't seem to matter how many mistakes he makes someone always has a similar story of their own mistakes. So when he forgot where he parked and his manager told him 'honey, I lose my car all the time in this lot' it made him feel good. He told me that if he was still in India he likely would have been killed (figuratively, not literally) by now for all the mistakes he had made.

He's making non-Indian friends and expanding his circle quite a bit now. He even has befriended a gay man with purple hair LOL. I would say he's definitely becoming quite more open to the craziness in America.

One thing I noticed is how hard hubby is on himself. By the way he talks I get the impression that he has been taught to feel like even the tiniest mistake is shameful. He will beat himself up over something that wouldn't even matter to most people. I think working in such an encouraging environment and getting out and meeting new people over the last year has been really good for him.

I've switched over to mostly organic foods, limited the amount of sugar in my diet and I'm happy to say that I've quit Dr. Pepper and I don't even want them anymore. I never thought I would get to that point (I've quit a few times but I've never lost my love for the flavor of it before now). I've cut out soy products and I'm feeling pretty good health-wise. I've increased my daily exercise, compliments of working in a really large building.

My only real complaint right now is that I still have a cough from the bronchitis I got back in early July. I've been to the doctor and nothing is working to rid me of this monster. Still, this is only a minor annoyance in my day. Life goes on, cough or no cough.

What's going on in your life?
