FRIDAY STIR FRY - Houston We Have A Problem

monitor


As some of you know, I've been in computer training all week. We are getting a new operating system at work. It has been a most exasperating experience. Not only is my old, tiny brain trying to re-boot but there has been all sorts of problems with the training software. Really doesn't give me much confidence in the new system. I mean if you have this much trouble with your training modules, how much trouble are we going to run into when it goes live in a few weeks?

The trainer has been nice and very patient with us though. She even went out for drinks with me last night (too many drinks). I'm surprised we are both functioning today. But that's a whole other problem.

Anyway, I've been so tired when I get home no editing has been going on. Again. My ex never understood how a desk job can wear you out so much. After all it's not physical labor. But, I'm tellin' ya, brain labor can be just as tiring. My neck hurts from hunching over a laptop and my eyes are dry from staring at the screen. I know, wa, wa, wa. At least I have a job.

Maybe this weekend I can recover enough to finish edits, and send out some queries. Fingers crossed.

  1. My husband doesn't get it either. Desk jobs are exhausting. He always says, "Well, at least you have air conditioning." Because most of the trucks he's in don't, but it doesn't matter, it's wearing. And kinks in new programs are the worst. We changed programs in November last year and we're still working out some of them.

    I really, really hope you get those edits done and start querying/submitting again soon. Fingers crossed.

  2. Technology is great, but I don't enjoy relearning things over and over when changes are made. And the only thing that seems to be constant is change.

    Hang in there, and try to find a little energy for yourself. Your writing needs to be out in the world!

  3. I'm scared to ask what software. We changed to Yardi here in 2009... and we still hate the beast.
