Some Good News

No, I'm not pregnant. I swear someone asks me if I'm pregnant every single day.  I'm not.  I'm just fat.  I swear I will tell you when and if I'm pregnant.

I actually got a promotion at work, which is partly why I haven't been blogging. I was thrilled, especially considering that my boss at my previous company basically said I was unpromotable because I didn't dress like Ally McBeal or I had too many papers on my desk or whatever stupid reason she could think of that day.

I'm now focused solely on internal communications, which is something I love.  I wasn't feeling the media relations thing - I'm a bad salesperson and media relations is basically a salesperson job.  I'm also an Assistant Vice President.  I know that titles aren't really that important in the grand scheme of things, but there's a tiny part of me that's a little bit impressed with myself.  Still, I've been working like a crazy person because I want to prove that they were right to give me the opportunity.

Boot Camp Bonanza
I've also been doing a boot camp twice a week.  I don't think I've lost any weight yet, but I've definitely gained muscle and lost inches.  And...drum roll please...I can finally touch my toes1 Thank you, yoga.

And Church
And last, but not least, Simon and I have started going to a local church. It's a United Church of Christ, which is the type of church we were married in.  After checking out pretty much every single church in Columbus, I think this one might be absolutely perfect for us.  We are obviously pretty liberal and open-minded, so we wanted to find a church that fit our personal values.

One of our biggest things is how the congregation approaches homosexuality.  'Cause personally, I don't think Jesus would have any problem with gay people whatsoever. This congregation had several gay couples, which I took to be a good sign. Plus, the pastor referenced Gandhi in the first service and Planned Parenthood in the second service -- and he was positive about both things.  That's my kind of pastor!
