I’ve had a week of ups and downs. My emotions, my weight, my attitude, my abilities.
I’ve had a good programming day Monday, but then found out I was going to a funeral on Tuesday. Tuesday turned into a lost cause in terms of work. The funeral was followed by a luncheon the bereaved held (?!), and by the time it all closed out, and we made the hour-plus drive back to our neck o’ the woods, it was after four. No sense going to the office then.
Wednesday, I helped the Import Coordinator – which I didn’t even know existed in our business group, and who also happens to be the ATR Coordinator and the Buyer/Planner – prepare for an internal import compliance audit today. No problem, but she got stressed about it (needlessly), and I could only do so much to help.
Thursday I got back on the programming horse to find a problem I couldn’t solve. After so many triumphs, it was disheartening to discover I can’t correctly interpret the code. I look at it, think I know what it’s doing, try and adjust it, and BAM! Generate an error. I don’t know what’s wrong or how to fix it.
Today is a new day. A new set of challenges. I hope I’ve got better wits about me today. (I had a sinus headache brewing fast and strong as a summer storm on Thursday, so I ended up hitting it hard with OTCs to stop it from getting to threshold. Migraine sufferers, you know what I mean. That might’ve contributed to the inability to think clearly…I hope.) I hope things settle down a bit. I’m hopeful I can look at things with newer eyes tomorrow and get back to programmer mode.
What’s up for you this weekend? If you’re in the US, this is Memorial Day weekend – any special plans? barbecues? parties?
Have a good one!
