I’m back dating this because I haven’t been to bed yet–and if I wind up staying up more than a couple more hours, I’ll just pull an all-nighter. I was up late last night pulling together a mailing list. This morning I was informed that the list was too small and needed more names. Unfortunately, it meant doing the whole thing over–I couldn’t just add more names. So last night was a complete waste of time.
The reason I pushed myself last night was that the data was supposed to be sent out this morning. I would then have the rest of the day to work on a presentation I have to give tomorrow. The presentation has been delayed because I’ve been waiting on feedback and further information from my boss. The plan was that the presentation would be in good shape by the end of the work day, and then I’d be able to focus on getting the house ready for another showing. And I’d kind of like to spend some quality time with DH and Justin.
Redoing the data took 8 hours–and then Access crashed in such a way that it couldn’t recover. I lost everything I had done today. Fortunately, I was able to redo the list, and since Access and our online database decided to actually work the way they are designed to, it only took a couple more hours.
But that means that I’m now just about to start the presentation. Oh and I just remembered a little something I need to add to the data before I can send it out. There are four additional fields that need to be created and then populated.
DH really did a lot of work cleaning the house, but there is still some stuff left to do on that front too.
I think the work chaos should slow down after tomorrow.
