This time of year gets stressful. As we move from one fiscal year to the next, all kinds of data must be carried forward. It has to happen at night (while the users are at home sleeping!) or on the weekend - because the system has to be "quiet".
That means I have to be flexible. In addition to my regular Mon-Fri work week,
I was supposed to start year-end work on Friday at 5:30pm. Some dependencies weren't met, so we guessed I could start around 11:30pm.
OK, only that didn't happen. It turned out to be 4:10am. sigh.
Right now, there is one more job running that could produce errors and it's my job to resolve the errors (if they come up).
We should know around 2am. (five hours from now)
And it isn't June 30 yet. I am preparing for some sleep deprivation over the next few days.
Only - how do you prepare for that?? You can't.
I am already cranky!
I have to work all night on June 30, and I WILL sew during the lulls.
And I have to remind myself that it is good to have a job and it is good to have teamwork. We do have good teamwork.
Yes, I will have some cheese with my whine.
