My new desktop was finally built out and brought up to my desk Wednesday about mid-day. And thankfully the thing seems to be working just fine (wood....I need wood to knock on).
The last couple of days have been a mad dash to finish setting up the new PC and get as much work done as possible as I am way behind. On the plus side I'm pretty much done setting up the PC. On the minus, well, despite getting a metric shitload of work done the last two days I also picked up three more projects. And I'm still behind. There was an IM from a project manager yesterday asking when I'd have certain code to the tester. I was a bit testy by then and told her she was not first, nor second, but third on my list; it would likely be Monday before I even knew when I'd get to her stuff; in the meantime go away - I'll let you know when I have something to share. I know she didn't mean anything by it - she has her job to do too - but by that point I'd been asked "when will I get my stuff" so often I was ready to scream.
There will be work again this weekend although I'm not sure yet how much. I have 3 more hours today before I go hit the gym and it really depends on how productive I manage to be in that time.
In other news I am at the end of my first 6-week weight loss period - weighed in last night at a very solid 205. At my lowest during the 6 weeks I was about 203. I gained some weight back last week with some indiscriminate munching and lady-cycle related water retention. The bloating seems to be correcting itself and I've worked off some of what the munchies left behind. All this means I met my first short-term goal of 5 pounds in 6 weeks. YAY! The next 6-week has now started with the goal of being 200 (or lower) by 5/27.
Now I must get back to work as I would like to enjoy at least some of my weekend.
