Sometimes I just run out of time in a day. I do not really know where it goes, but it just manages to disappear. This is mostly because of my new role on a new Microsoft project with the Windows Server group. I am the lead Business Analyst and Test Lead. That puts me in charge of all requirements gathering, and supporting a team to turn those requirements into functional specifications. We have six specifications to write by the second week of November. So, crunch time for me has begun. But, coming from the last gig I was on this is much better than just sitting around all day.
When I get home in the evening there is still stuff that needs to get done. I have found that if I am not making a list of things that I need to do, things fall through the cracks. So, I have recently been using TaDa List again to try to keep myself organized as far as tasks go, but that seems to be hit or miss. But, when I do get tasks into it, I find that I am getting them accomplished. It has been tough though since I just got a new HDTV and I just recently upgraded my cable subscription to take advantage of my TV purchase. So, needless to say that when I am not working at home I am enjoying my purchase… a lot.
Having all that said, I have been healthy for almost a month now (yay!). Starting tomorrow I have a feeling that things will be kicking into high gear for the next 3 to 4 weeks. I look forward to the challenge it will provide, because I know for sure that there will be one there (think: laying train tracks as the train is running full speed down the tracks). All I can do now is execute, not completely loose my mind, and do the best work that I possibly can. Oh, and make sure to continue enjoying my HDTV. That will be a must.
