I Think I'm Turning Japanese

While its true I rarely venture from the murky depths of the submersible, and I'm rarely shod in anything fancier than Crocks, this gorgeous Ralph Lauren Rugby shirt is fully half-off at - only $69.99. Doesn't it look cozy? If only I didn't need an oil change and tires...again. And I do need those things as I'm Texas-bound for Spring Break. I'll be in Anna over the weekend, then Wise County.

Sometimes, because I do so rarely disembark from my magnificent undersea technological wonder I feel disconnected - as if nothing I do really matters. I suppose its one of the pitfalls of working from home full time, lack of affirmation. And while I've never required it to motivate me, in my isolation I sometimes wonder if my toiling is for naught.

After my unusual dream, I contacted my old neighbor and coworker via our corporate chat to tell him of it. Without prompting, he volunteered that he hears my name floating up and down the hallways all the time, and heard it three times that very day from two different people onsite and once as a kudos at the corporate-wide quarterly all-hands. Affirmation. That I don't toil unnoticed. I don't require it to motivate my actions, but its nice to hear from time to time. Especially when you're 20,000 leagues under the sea.
