Is it over yet?

The week. It has been long and draining. Both due to him being away and work being double intensive. Mehul is being very good for the most part. He's at his best behavior with fewer meltdowns than I can remember since he turned 3. I have to ponder what is different now and why it is happening later.

I am doing two projects at the same time, I'm the developer for Project #1 and it is in the phase where everyone puts their code together and someone tries to run it for the first time. You can imagine what happens next. Everything is broken and I need to fix things as they find them. I like doing this usually.

For Project #2, I am the lead person and hence have most of the responsibility for writing the functional requirements, design, coordinate everyone else's input as needed and get it out the door to the client. I hate the coordinating part. Also, since it's going on alongwith the Project#1, it is getting hard to concentrate on the design when I'm having to fix issues ad-hoc.

I really need a getaway but none is in sight until my vacation in October. Thank goodness for the Labor day Holiday weekend. I'm going to sit on my bum and not do anything.

Anyhow, Jo made my day today by giving me a Blog award.

It is amazing to me that someone likes what I write. I try not to be very whiny but sometimes I need it. Like today.

Here are the rules:

1. The winner can put the logo on their Blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other Blogs.
4. Put the links to those Blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the Blogs of those you've nominated.

So, I nominate -
Susan's Afford Your Passions for the country needlework projects I (suddenly) like.
Teresa's Artistic License for it's great to look inside the mind (blog) of such a great artist!
Buddhini's Bright & Gold for the colorful life she lives and shares.
Buff Mama Melissa's for the hilarious posts.
Tresa's Reese Dixon for she's one of the most creative person I've seen online.
Sue's Stop and Stitch the Roses for the beautiful garden/nature pictures that make my day everytime I hop over.
and, Karen's The Sparklie Things Blog for the sparkle it provides.
