back on the chain gang
First day back to work since Thursday, and oh dear god I am completely snowed under. My partner just left for a 3-week vacation in China, so I have to cover for him while he's gone. We work on something that is So Dang Important That It Must Be Up 24/7 Or Else so there's never really a day off. I'm also scheduled to be on call next week and the week after. Many's the time I think about leaving IT altogether.
But on to happier things...although my quads are still a little sore and I'm still very dehydrated, I ran (trotted is more like it) a little over 2 miles this morning. It was completely stress-free, and actually helped my legs feel better. I think I'm going to run the Baltimore marathon this fall.
