Overwhelmed. That's the easiest way to describe how I currently feel about work. Another project was announced today, and of course, it falls under my product umbrella. Combine that with two onogoing prototype projects. Add a dash of involvement with a very large finicky financial customer and you've got a very stressed Aron.
Work led to my graduate class, for which I was once again under-prepared and over-tired. The good thing was that the professor was also under-prepared and over-tired. As a result, he was totally chatty -- talking most of the night, rather than letting us participate more. See it as a professor's stay-awake routine. Well, combined with a constant source of caffeine
To top it off, for the second week in a row, the demo he was going to show in class didn't work properly. So, after 30 minutes of hacking around, he gave up. Last week, we left a half-hour early.
The day ended on a good note, though. Barbara and I celebrated Valentine's Day a day early. There were cashmere and picnic baskets giftings, and talk of tulips delivered to work. And we snuggled. Yay.
