When deciding to start a blog I was very excited and had so many ideas of what I would write about. Yet here I sit not knowing what to share with my audience (a whole two of them who might not even bother reading this) But, my mission was to ultimately write more so that is what I’m going to do. I’m going to tell you about what happened during this past week.
News at work
First off, I was working as a consultant for one of the biggest financial institutions in the country. Being exposed to some of the most exciting technologies in my line of work. The customer that I work for has mentioned at times that he would like to appoint me a permanent position within the company. This got me very excited as working for such a big and well known firm has many rewards and perks, as apposed to working for a smaller consulting company. Unfortunately the firm I work for wasn’t very accommodating when being approached by the client that we work for. I was extremely disappointed and this just made me realize that the people I work for only had one major goal which was to get paid at the end of the month and that their staff’s well being wasn’t very high on their priority list. Made me feel like I was just a number with a dollar sign on my head and nothing more. Long story short, 4 months later and I am 2 weeks away from becoming a permanent employee of the client where I am. The consulting firm I work for was basically forced into letting me go Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together mowahaha.
News at home
In other news, my wife is expecting our second son, totaling my offspring to 3. 2 boys and a beautiful blonde girl. Unfortunately my wife was diagnosed with placenta previa, which is a condition that causes hemorrhaging during pregnancy. To date we’ve been in and out of hospital almost a half dozen times but, for the past 4 weeks she’s been resting at home and we haven’t been back to hospital since except for the routine checkups once a week, which have been very positive so far. Our baby is due in 3 weeks time. I can barely contain my excitement. After our first child was born (my daughter) we we’re new to the whole parenting thing, trying to do everything right and by the book. Fast forward 5 years and out pops my son. By this time my daughter was already in preschool and now we had to start everything all over again with a new baby in the house. Things we’re not always smooth sailing with my little champ who is very peculiar about what he wan’t and how he wants it.
That’s my week in nutshell. Hopefully I’ll be back soon with something fascinating to write about. I will be doing a book review real soon and I’m looking forward to telling you about this one.
