duke-stop

Long Week, but it's over

Wow, long week. I have today off, which is nice. My big project went into production on wednesday, after... a forever's worth of work. I wasn't involved in the implementation tuesday night, which took almost all night. But I did get a lovely phone call early wednesday morning.

I was still in bed, pressing snooze on my alarm clock, trying to wake up. When the phone rang I quickly turned off the alarm and answered it. After pulling out my laptop and talking with the developers for 45 minutes, I was able to get off the phone and get ready for work. Wednesday was a chaotic day, with several problems that cropped up. We ended up having to put in a new release that very night.

Once again I didn't have to do it, but I was asked to be at work at 6am on thursday. Six o'clock in the morning! Yuck. When I left a friend's house, wednesday night, I said, "I have to be at work in seven hours!" Crazy.

Yesterday went okay. I made it into work just a tiny bit after six, which is impressive for me. It was a long day, but things went better than the day before at least. A few problems cropped up, but nothing as bad as the previous day! I finally made it outta there at about 5:30. And I only worked from home for a couple hours last night.

But the good thing is: no work today! It's my friday off. Thank goodness! It was such a relief to sleep in this morning. I'm still sleepy, but feeling much better. I was concerned for awhile there that I would have to come in today, but it looks like the day is mine now. Yay!

Although the day is slipping away from me. It's almost 1pm! I should really go do something... eventually. Soon, hopefully, I'll get motivated and productive.
