Affirmation

Sorry to be a bad blogger again...this stupid "work" thing is really being a drag! Here is is past 1:00 and I am finally getting to today's post. That is patently unacceptable!

Despite being incredibly busy, I am really kind of fired up today. I got two different emails that make me feel warm and fuzzy inside:-). The first came to me through Papa Bear. The thing I did last week wasn't actually for our firm. We are consulting on another firm's deal, and I went out there as part of that project (there was one other guy from our firm, but he was doing something totally unrelated to what I was doing).

Because Papa Bear is somewhat protective of me, he was checking up and asked the other guy how I did. He wrote a super glowing review of me, which Papa Bear forwarded to me when he got it. It was full of all kinds of words like "sharp", "instinctive" and "effective interviewer", and that all made me feel really good. I like to feel like I am pulling my own weight:-). Maybe I am not as far overpaid as I usually think I am...

The second was from Munchkin's cousin who sent me a really nice note about what a fun stay she had, and of how happy she is for Munchkin and what a good spot she seems to be in. Since her father's family and I have sort of been at odds over the years (ok, very much at odds) it is really fulfilling to get a vote of confidence from one of them. She was amazed by her school...which, in truth, is a pretty amazing place...and just basically felt like she seemed like a really happy kid. That made me smile:-).

So those are my two feel-good notes for the day. On the downside, it is cold and rainy and just basically miserable outside. Spring will be here soon. Right? Won't it? Maybe?

I completely understand about work getting in the way...It's been doing the same thing for me!

Spring HAS to come soon. It just has to. Kind of nice to get those notes to distract you from the freezing rain, though :)
