Things are a bit stressy right now. I probably won't see people before some of it passes, but if I do and I'm a bit short - please try to understand.
Quarter-end exchequer reports are actually going better than I'd hoped. I've gotten lots of help and the past efforts to get people caught up seem to be paying off. I still have to spend a fair amount of time with last-minute "Aaagh! I can't get this to balance!" people, but I expected that and it's fine. Saying I don't begrudge spending the time is, in fact, a lie - I really do, I'd rather be watching a movie with the wife and relaxing - but I don't begrudge having to do it. I wouldn't offer help if I didn't expect it to be taken and I won't blame the people for the time.
Work is the major part. We've gotten to a size where we're undergoing our first SEC audit. It's routine and we're doing everything we can to keep it so. However, this still means that we have a ginormous amount of information to pull in less than a week's time. I expect I'll be staying late all week. I barked at one of my (non-involved) cow-orkers last night because he kept bugging me for some trivial information that he never remembers how to get himself. I apologized today but I kind of feel justified...
I've been sliding into having a second cup of coffee at work more often. I'm trying to prevent from that becoming a full-blown habit. That means that days like today, where I really could
use one, I'm not getting it. I had a second yesterday so I'm trying to force a weekly limit.
