Work Sucks

Posted on 9/13/2000 to In General

So much time spent on something that is a piece of crap.

My current project has had problems from the beginning...a lack of design documents, clear business rules, etc. Yet, we keep plugging away at it, hoping that one day, we can move onto something else.

It looks like I will be going for my MCSD, MCDBA, and MCSE certifications in the very near future. I have had numbers whispered in my ear regarding compensation should I start getting certified. Since the company is paying for it, why not?

Stayed home for most of the day with Jacob as his nanny had other things going on. Does that seem right? You run a business, and that business is open certain hours on certain days. People count on you to be open, just like the grocery store, or the gas station. Seems like this nanny should have found a back up for her business. Oh well, I enjoyed the time with Jacob. We had a lot of fun bonding.

That's it for now,

Busy, Busy, Busy Part 2

So, let's see...last post was 7/31/2000. I guess it is time to post again.

A lot has happened since my last post. Mostly, life have revolved around my son, Jacob, and work.

Jacob is great! I never imagined that being a parent could be so fulfilling, yet so hard...and he is only 6 1/2 weeks old.

Work...ah work...well that is one thing that I could do without for a while. We are nearly finished with our current project, and it can't end soon enough. To say that I am looking forward to my next assignment would be a gross understatement. On the bright-side, I am going to a Web Developer's Conference in Las Vegas in 2 weeks. I can't wait!

One last note...check out my new favorite show, Bull.
