Just wondering if it's safe for me to come up for air yet....
Edited on Fri May-05-06 07:15 PM by fudge stripe cookays
:hangover:

Many of you know I got a new job at the beginning of February for a software company where I'm writing the documentation, the online Help and the release notes, and will have more responsibilities as needed.

I've been working 12-14 hour days since then, including weekends most of the time (I've taken maybe 6-7 days completely off in 3 months).

So today, I FINALLY turned in the final .pdfs and hard copy to send to the printer!! :woohoo: The Help is due next Wednesday...then I have a couple months of lull.

This first time was the worst because I had to completely re-vamp both documents. It should only get easier from now on. 8-hour days will be such a relief!

:D

Although I've been around a little bit lately, (usually mornings before work), I have missed my DU buddies!

5. Well crap!
I was going to link to MY kudzu copycat thread, but someone must have gotten it deleted.

:-(

10. My kudzu copycat was supposed to be the best & last.
Answer it would you? I didn't leave you hanging! ;)

Mine was about Urdu. A sequential link from the "I'm bullish on Kurdu" thread. Who was the selfish bastard who got it taken down. :cry:

Sounds like you have been working too damn long hours. I'd be :bonkers:

Hell, I am :bonkers: enough from having moved a week ago.

16. Sadly, no.
:-(

Our niece will be getting married during part of that time, so we'll be in the Great White North.

But I also get to meet a whole slew of new cousins, so I'll be that much closer to finishing my family history book, so I'm pretty excited!

18. Likewise!
I was just remembering how much fun I had with everyone in Houston 2 years ago!

How's the new job coming? Do I remember you saying you did get one?

19. The job's been going ok.
Unlike yours, they kick me out after 7.75 hours per day. :D
