Coming to work early

I got to work about 7:15 this morning. It was still kinda dark as I left the house. It made me think of camping again. I really enjoy that time of morning. And it's so quiet at the office right now, too. I'm going to try to start coming in this early (or earlier) more often. Or at least getting up this early.

Of course, the reason I'm in so early is another few days of all day conference call coding session. We've extended ourselves 'till Wednesday to do this. Even though this is a great experience and we're getting a lot doene, I will be quite happy when we're done with this and work moves to a more "normal" schedule.

work, work, work

It really felt good to be out of the house, on the way to work before seven o'clock this morning. It did not feel so good to be leaving the office, on the way home after nine o'clock this evening. At least I took about an hour for lunch and came home.

Yes, I'm complaining. But it's only a mild complaint -- overall, I really am happy with my job. I'm only mildly complaining for at least three reasons:
  1. I'm employed at a time when many of my friends are not
  2. in general, I enjoy the kind of work I do and am thankful to be able to make a living doing something I enjoy.
  3. a bad day at my current job is a lot better than a good day at my previous job
