Sitting in a boring training on territory planning and account management. Thankfully we were allowed to carry our laptops to the training room so atleast I won’t die of boredom.Work has begun to look better. The economy is showing signs of coming out of recession. Thats good news for me because that means my customers will now have budgets for IT investments. And thats when yours truly will come in the picture. Fingers crossed.
I’ve finally got my hands on Dan Brown’s latest. So lets see if he takes us on a roller coaster ride like in “The Da Vinci Code” or be a dud like in “Deception Point” or “Digital Fortress”. For the record, I read both of them 3 yrs ago and was really disappointed.
Also, I have finally started my diet today. Not too long ago, I had almost hit my target weight but in the last two months, I totally neglected the diet & workouts and here I am, back to square 1. Need to lose 11 kg now. I’ve set a date of 1st Dec 09 to achieve this. Will be following the atkins diet plan as well as other fitness and workout plans. Hopefully my next update will be with more ‘fitter’ news.
And guess what? I think my kiddo is going to follow my footsteps into sports. I can proudly claim that he can now throw a ball. All of 8 months and that kid is able to grab and throw a ball a good 3 meters. Now, all I have to do is wait till he’s able to throw it 22 yards and, ladies and gentlemen, we’ll have a new cricket player amongst us. India’s next cricket superstar! 🙂 Btw, full credit for this has to go to his grandpa. He’s the one who thought Ibrahim how to throw. And as the age old saying goes “practice makes perfect”, my kid, the genius that he is ;), already knows this. So what does he do to practice? He throws whatever he gets his hand on! Need I say more?!?
My wife may travel to India later this month. Still tentative. Last time she was gone, I missed her so bloody much that I wrote my first and only poem! Not sure how I am going to get around this time. But I have a couple of weeks to prepare myself. It’s funny how two people get together thanks to this wonderful institution called ‘marriage’ and then you can’t think of life without that person even though you’ve spent your life before marriage without that person. This one person, my better half, makes this life worthwhile. At times we may not agree to the same things or have the same interests or opinions but we’ve agreed to disagree. She’s stood by me on my toughest decisions and she’s taken some tough decisions for me. I rely and respect her judgement and advice. She’s made me look good in places where I could have looked real bad. At the end of a long day at work, one sight of her smiling face or a chirpy ‘hello’ on the phone makes the bluest of the blues go away. Fifty years down the line, when I look back at my life and be given an option to do it all over again, I’d not have it any other way than the way I have it right now.
