My latest code has been able to work on multiple “widgets” within one page. This was exciting for me, and I ended up staying late at work the other night as I got near completion. I was sooo happy with my accomplishment, but being the only programmer, it can be tough. Nobody really appreciates the successes that I feel are so exciting. It’s not their fault by any means, they just are not into the tech as much as I am.
At the end of the day, I tell my wife. She is the best cheerleader a guy could have. While she doesn’t fully understand, she puts on a smile and tells me how great it is when I do accomplish the small things. She tries so hard to be understanding and just there for me. I am a lucky lucky man.
