The weekend was not at all restful, and I didn’t sleep particularly well last night and the ol’ anxiety has decided to kick in this morning to boot. Spending a good 5 minutes trying to figure out what THAT NOISE was and finally figuring out that it wasn’t from something in the house and was in fact a woodpecker nearby didn’t help.
And we’re off to a rip roaring start today at work. Someone on the other side of the world sent a meeting invite at 1AM for a 7:30AM meeting today – I think you can guess who missed that. It was just a developer demo and it’s been recorded, and I doubt they realistically expected me to be there, but yeesh. (The hazards of a holiday here but not there.) And it’s for a feature I didn’t even know we were doing, YAY.
So I’m starting the week feeling like I missed a month and not just a day. Just told my other US based partner in crime that all our holidays need to be worldwide.
But, it’s a short week. And we get paid, which is good cause I’m feeling super broke right now. (I know I am not broke, but I am *feeling* broke, IYKWIM.) It will be good to add to the “if shit goes wrong” cushion in the bank account. While I have no rational reason to think I’m going to be laid off from this job, it’s one of those perpetual concerns that just never really goes away. This despite getting a really nice public shout out from one of our team leads, with a “what she said” followup from my supervisor. Still always looking at the budget going, “If I get shitcanned, how long before I have to sell my house…”
But, onwards and upwards and all that happy horseshit.
