What was that middle part again?

This morning my husband finally grokked what I do for a living. We've been together for 7 years, and he's just now figuring out how I spend my days. That cracks me up.

Seriously? Shut the hell up!

This is a man that lives in his head. (I also have a terrible time describing what I actually do with my days.) But yeah. Funny.

Seven years of not knowing? That's bizarre. But then, my ex and I did more or less the same thing for a living, so obviously, I was pretty accustomed to an automatic level of "get". Did he listen, however? Not so much.

Yeah, the listening. I think he understood the basics, but really had no idea as to the extent of how crazy this job is. I think I scared him this morning when I told him I was working on 4+ projects and building out a system. As a developer, he does one thing at a time if he can help it. If only I could get away with that!

My work isn't a one at a time thing, either. It's all very mishmashy and DO IT NOW. I'm not always great with the multi-tasking on that level, but I manage. I can't imagine having only one thign to concentrate on at a time.

Now I'm sort of curious as to what he thought you did.

I wish I could tell you. But this morning I could see the light come on as he related my job to what he needs in his office.

I think the scenario probably went something like this

Allthough
this is possible too.

Yes, that was it exactly.

You should feel good about that...my wife will probably never figure it out...
