Mission Accomplished!

Whew. That was a busy week.

I’ve been home a week from vacation, and I just put away the suitcases. Partly I was resting my back, which is about 95% better, but also it’s been a busy week at work.

I do my best to not bring work home with me, but there are some weeks, where it happens. This was one of those weeks.

We had a saying amongst the data processing managers that went like this, “In order for a project to succeed, someone has to bleed.” When deadlines approach, when crunch-time arrives, then it’s time to “Get ‘er done!” I had two of those days this week.

Whew. Mission Accomplished.

It remains to be seen if things quiet down sufficiently to blog more regularly, but I anticipate that it will.

After my recent vacation, I made a list of topics I want to write on. I still have that list!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still finding some time for rest, relaxation, and recreation, but work temporarily has encroached on my fun-time.

But I’ll be back! Just you wait.


  1. I'll be waiting for that list of topics to begin Don.........eagerly :)
    Hope your back is better and dude......don't let them totally stress you out at the old job!! No one died due to something that happened did they? If not, then things ain't as bad as the ole boss always seems to think you know?

    Steady On

  2. blogging hiatus is forgivable.
    take care of what needs to be done.
    finals week is coming soon for me, I'm sure I'll be locked up in a hole somewhere (I've been writing 3 out of 4 completely seprate curriculums this semester... time to develop tests and final project details!)

  3. Reggie Girl: Thanks for stopping by and for the encouragement. I work hard at managing stress. Some stress is fun, like racquetball. I try not to over-do work or play. (My 95% back may be back at 75% due to my play today. I over did it on one play... reached a bit too far forward... a bit too awkward... but... hey, it was fun!)

    Chase: Thanks for the forgiveness. ;-)
    Sometimes some things percolate to the top of our to-do lists: like prep for meetings... or finals... and then grades! I always appreciate your comments.
