Waiting for the Weekend to End

The last week has been a whirlwind of work and incidental things - mostly work.  I've got a project that is aimed (somewhat unsteadily) at going live on Thursday the 15th - while at the same time I am trying to transition my former responsibilities off my plate.  The result has been work days that pass in a flash, with the usual array of work frustrations and stressors.  I am anticipating much of the same this week, in part because it is going to be a shorter than usual week.

I took Monday off so I could take a friend of mine in for an angiogram early Monday morning and then give him a ride home six hours later when he is finished.  Layer on top of that I have another appointment of my own at 1:30 PM Monday afternoon regarding the cracked callus on my foot.  Then, on Thursday I am going to fly down to Anaheim for a short vacation (and a chance to go to WonderCon).  So, I am anticipating that this week is going to pass in the blink of an eye - a very busy eye, but the blink of an eye either way. I am going to try to move quickly and efficiently through it, with a heart of compassion.  That is going to be the best that I can do.

My evening has been pretty simple - I checked work email to see what sort of developments happened over the weekend (nothing of significance except continued testing) and to try and get a jump on the week to come.  I am currently watching "The Walking Dead" on AMC, which is a pretty enjoyable show.  Once it wraps up I think I am going to slide into the evening with quiet reading and contemplation and waiting for the weekend to end.
