Today I finally had the opportunity to relax in the evening. Friday, I ended up working nearly 11 hours on a production release at work that didn’t complete successfully. This led to several hours of work over the weekend, combined with an early morning start (i.e. working from home as early as 6 a.m.) Monday and an additional production issue that took all morning to resolve. Follow that up with an entanglement with another group’s issue during the afternoon, which led to another late night on Tuesday (until about 8:30 PM, a full 12-hour day), and my this morning, I was exhausted. Then throw in to that mix the fact that we moved our cubicles down to the first floor of our building this morning, and I was very stressed out.
Leaving shortly after 5 never felt so good, and taking a nap certainly was refreshing. Now I just wish it was Friday already.
