This Weekend Sucked, But It’s Okay

  • Posted on May 11, 2009 at 1:48 pm

Any time you are actually happy to go in to the office on Monday because it will actually mean less work than the weekend that you just spent working… well, it’s just a bad sign.

It started with me signing in from home to work around 7 PM Friday night (yes, after putting in a full day at work). I did a bunch of things, then twiddled my thumbs until midnight, when I had to do some more things. Then I got a break until noon on Saturday, so at least I was able to get a full night’s sleep, even if it was late. Then the real fun began. Someone made a mistake, which made what should have been 15 minutes of work for me into the rest of the weekend worth of work. I was going to have to work on other things anyway, but this meant that I had to juggle a full load of work on two different systems, instead of just the one. I got less than four hours of sleep early Sunday morning.

Anyway, I survived. 🙂 And I managed to finish my final project for my last class (for now, at least) and get it turned in before heading off to bed around midnight last night. Now to strap on my boots and prepare for a very busy week. We’re going through another practice exercise at work consisting of 24×7 work for everyone on the project to go through a mock run of what will be required to bring the system online at the end of July. That means a little bit of a break for me today and then really intense and odd hours Tuesday and Wednesday.

But hey, I’m almost done with my class. Since I turned in my final project last night (two days early), I just have 3 critiques to write on Wednesday. And then I can breathe again. I’ll be so happy to just go outside for a while on Thursday. I don’t even care what the weather is going to be like, as long as I’m not in front of a computer of some sort! 😀

Thanks to all of you for continuing to read and for all of your supportive comments. I really appreciate each and everyone one of you!
