So here we are in the middle of August, and I just realized that my team and I have been heads down, working our collective tails off, pretty much non-stop since 12/5/2008. At that time, my team got hit with a "crisis" that required us to scramble and get some work arounds in place for our software distribution technology. To the teams credit, we got it done, and the workaround is in place an functioning marvelously.
Of course, no sooner did we get that done, and we were hit with another short fuse, tight deadline project. And its stayed like that all the way up to now. And the real challenging part is that there doesn't seem to be an end in sight.
From my point of view, this is a blessing and a curse. We all thank our higher powers for having steady, rewarding jobs, and we're grateful that we're not in the unemployment line. But at the same time, we long for the somewhat less hectic days that was our lives little as 12 months ago.
And the world just keeps on changing.....
