Wasted Saturday

April 21st, 2008 at 10:05 pm

We had our FVO this weekend which is when we put our code out to the public. Normally this is supposed to take 1 - 2 hours. It took 7 1/2 hours. My part only took the expected 1 hour but because I'm the so called 'expert' I had to stay on and work everyone else's issues. The biggest problem was the idiot we had doing the installs. We all knew he couldn't do this after 6 months of doing it 3 or 4 times a week and failing everytime. But management is still making excuses for him. Anyways he didn't install half the code and made typo's in the other half and it took time to figure out all the problems. I sat here for 7 1/2 hours with one bathroom break - no lunch and no dinner. When we were finally done I stood up and almost fell over. I was so stiff from sitting here all day. Not good. I still feel like someone beat me today.

Yesterday there was a local Antique show at the high school. $5 admittance and $5 for an appraisal of one item. Mom and I went and the show was one of the best we've seen in a long time. Real antiques, not just collector crap from the last 30 years. Unfortunately the jewelry appraiser didn't show so I wasn't able to get my grandma's old jewelry set of necklace, bracelets and screw on earrings appraised. I did find a crystal sugar shaker for my mom for mother's day for $18.50.

Finished reading the library book Green Living by the editors of E magazine. Good.

I also finished 2 of my books. Predatory Game by Christine Feehan and Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night by Kresley Cole. Supernatural/Romance. Both were excellent.

    Argh - there's always one challenging person to work with. Any chance for a transfer for him? Smile

    Hang in there! You only have a few months to go. Repeat after me, "July, July, July"
