Mixed emotions

Our go-live date on the work project has been postponed a few weeks. I have mixed emotions about it - on one hand, we would have been through with the launch at the end of this had we gone live on the original date. I am really ready for life to get back to normal. On the other hand, this gives us more time to work on system performance and migration with a little more breathing room for the users.

Meanwhile, it's become very obvious that the work / overtime schedule I've been keeping has taken a toll on me. Muscle spasms, inability to concentrate on one thing for more than a few minutes, and exhaustion are a few of the things I've noticed.

I stitch when I can, which isn't often, but I have made a little progress on the pumpkins pillow.

We also drove to The Quilter's Attic and picked up my last block of the month for this year. I finally got around to putting it together today. It seemed to take hours. But it is done, and I have some ideas percolating about how I want to put it together. I didn't buy the finishing kit because I wasn't thrilled with their layout.

I'm probably going to bed early - it's going to be a long several more weeks. Thank goodness we have Christmas Eve and Christmas Day holidays in there!
