For those of you who don’t know, I am a web developer/programmer. It’s my job. It’s how I pay bills and eat foods. Anyway, as a web developer I set my own schedule/hours. It’s kinda tough. I’m naturally very irresponsible and lazy. It’s helping me mature in that area, though.
Anyway, I’m very behind in hours because of a few things. First, we had a week vacation. This was planned and I worked extra the week before to help make up for the time I’d be gone. I planned to work more the week after as well. What I DID NOT plan was to have freakin’ jury duty as soon as we get back… jury duty that lasted almost two weeks. That cut into my work time drastically, so I got very little done during that time.
After the jury duty, my boss then had a week long trip where he would be off the grid. Without being able to reach him (or the client, for that matter), I quickly reached a point in my work where I was unsure how to continue without more direction or feedback, and workflow came to a halt once again.
So it’s basically been a month with very little work done. I’m so far behind I’m almost going backward.
I’m going to skip a few details and blah blah blah. So here we are today. I have some work to do but today I need to run errands with my sister. It will probably take a good chunk of the day. Technically I could have told her NO but we have things we really should take care of.
Oh heavy sigh.
