Yet another working weekend

So here I am, working yet another weekend. I’m exhausted, can’t remember the last time I had a day off. It’s nothing new, really, just a part of life as a programmer. But seriously, if people would only listen when you tell them it is impossible to fit 10 lbs of crap into a 2 lb bag (so to speak), then we wouldn’t HAVE to work all these insane hours!! It is SO frustrating.

Yesterday, I worked from 6:30am to almost 1:00am, trying to get it all done so that I could have my weekend. Didn’t get there, I still have 2 more things left to do. I just might get to have tomorrow off, at least. *sigh*

I really, really want more time to work on my new pattern, gosh darnit!! The progress has been very slow, with all the work I’ve been doing this past week. But I’ve made enough progress that the pattern is showing nicely… and I think it’s really good. The important thing is that my son really likes it so far! He can’t wait to see the heel, once I get there. That ought to be interesting, trying to sort out that bit. We shall see, anyway!!

Yesterday my frustration with work was so much that I chucked it for a bit at lunch time & squeezed in a 3 mile run. It was hotter than hell out there & my heart rate was all wonky (probably due to the stress of work!), so it was slow going. But it really did help for a bit! I needed it, badly.

Today, the boys & I are going to go see Iron Man with a friend of theirs. My oldest actually asked me to sit somewhere else. My son expects me to sit all by myself?! *sniffle, pout, sigh* I guess being a “cool” Mom doesn’t extend to time spent with friends. LOL!

Oh, and I have to find time today to also take him for driving practice. That’s where he says I’m cool… that of everyone so far that has taken him driving, I’m the “coolest”. he he he Little does he know that deep down inside, I’m scared as well as sad that my boy is growing up.

Oh yuck. Leonardo just came over & loved on me. Left big Dane boogies on my shirt, along with a bit of the toilet water he apparently just drank. *shaking head* Hopefully today he will not plop his head on my keyboard & wipe out an entire section of code. He has that tendency. Some day, I must get someone to take a picture of that.

Off to work, play time is over.

Quotes for today:

We live in the age of the overworked, and the under-educated; the age in which people are so industrious that they become absolutely stupid.
~Oscar Wilde

More men are killed by overwork than the importance of the world justifies.
~Rudyard Kipling
