Someone asked me why I named my blog “A Life of Constant Flux”.
Well, it’s pretty simple — My life is currently always in flux.
It didn’t always used to be that way. Until about 1.5 years ago, my spouse and I did what many people do when you don’t have kids. We settled in a place, bought a house, lived there 10 years, went to work 5 days a week, took some vacations and just lived a “normal” life.
Well that changed in mid-2005 when we found out we were having twins. That set off a chain of events that led to the birth of the twins, 2 quit jobs (me and my spouse), a move across the country (from California to North Carolina), 4 different residences in the span of a year (house in California, apartment in NC, house in NC, current apartment in NC), another about-to-be quit job (as of October 5, 2007), another upcoming move (going to leave the current apartment), indecision about the future of both of our careers (do I contract, start my own business, or both; does my wife go back to work part time or start her own business) — all this while raising two twin boys.
