I’m supposed to have the day off. But it was scheduled at the last minute, and I made the mistake of saying I would check messages. Of course, something came up that needed to be done “ASAP.” Back when I was an editor, I learned that “ASAP” is not a deadline, and that you needed to give actual dates when you had work that needed to be done. Sigh. On top of that, I had a question about the task for the editor, and I haven’t heard back, and the office closes at 2. So it’s looking like “ASAP” means “Tuesday” in this case.
Anyway, so I’m working. Connecting to the network is taking so long, though, that I’m getting house chores done at the same time. It’s multi-tasking but on a very slow scale.
My back is doing better. This weekend might be OK after all. Even with the work I’m doing, I still really have today off, and I have the holiday off on Monday. Life is good.
… except my VPN connection to work just crashed. The technology is not yet mature. I just wish it wouldn’t throw temper tantrums, y’know?
