Journaling Some Work

It's 1:38 pm. But for a snowstorm on Thursday, this would be my 7th straight day at work.
I'm doing things that people variously term "unwise," "strange," or "nearly impossible."
I've nearly gotten them to work, but not yet.  That's why I'm here.

Sunday Afternoon at Work

"Well, sir, you certainly didn't have afternoons like *this*, when you were doing the Architect Gig."

Gotta love that inner critic.  There's always something.

My response:  Indeed, but I didn't *ever* have weeks like last week where we found and solved problems in realtime with a team of engineers, either.  It was lonely, and devoid of the kind of dopamine-enhanced highs I got.

Last week was hard.  Every day except for Wednesday, I was here 'til late.  On two nights, mine was the last car out of the parking log.   Snowpocalypse 2015 put us behind, and a Linux/PAM story that won't die put us even farther behind.

I'm enjoying it, but not today.  Today, I'm just tired.

Time to drive to Louisville to get Joey.
