Justin wants me to make sure that everybody understands that it was totally my fault that the website got broken. He told me that it wouldn’t be just as simple as I thought—download a patch and go. He warned me that there might be problems. He suggested that I might be more happy to just stick with what I had instead of messing with it and trying to go with the new thing. And I said that I wanted to do it anyway. When it broke, he was totally within his rights to say that he told me so. And when I moaned and groaned for the next month and a half about how much I missed my website and I wished it was working and could he please, please, please fix it for me? He sighed with great patience and resignation and did what he could to figure out what had gone wrong and what needed to change so it would work again.
So. Totally my fault. And I’m very happy that he fixed it for me.
After not writing for such a long time, it’s hard to know where to start. Part of me feels like I ought to recap the last month and a half. Another part of me recognizes that most of the people reading this already know what’s happened in the last several weeks so there’s not much of a reason to rehash it. Plus, I would have to talk about some very sad events that, honestly, I’m just not up to discussing.
So I think we’ll just start fresh and keep moving on from here.
Today is Friday and it’s been a while since I’ve been so very happy to see a Friday morning. It’s been an absolutely crazy week at work. We’ve been working on a major project that’s extraordinarily complicated. It involves nearly everybody in my department in some way and is interconnected in so many different ways with so many different people, it’s hard to figure out which way to turn when something goes badly. We were supposed to have finished it yesterday, but it looks like the new deadline is going to be late next week. There are actually three similar projects working in tandem and all of them are likely to miss their deadlines and get pushed back so we can finish everything that needs to be done. We’re working like mad, but it’s just not fast enough.
Today is actually quite calm, so far. Several people in my department don’t work on Fridays because they work 10-hour shifts for the first part of the week. I have several people I need to chat with before I head out around 11:30 this morning and a couple small projects to pull together, but it should be a relatively calm morning.
Justin is working from home today. We’re expecting a package from UPS and hopefully a repair man for the hot water heater. Plus, the project he’s been working on all week doesn’t really require that he be in the office. He can do it from any computer connected to the internet.
I don’t know that we have any plans for today or the weekend. We’ll do laundry today. I’ll do the bills. Justin will work on his computer. With any luck, it will be a very restful weekend.
