*dusts off the neglected LJ*
Hello all! New laptop ended up taking far longer than expected for purchasing -- but, at long last, today I finally ordered my new laptop. Unfortunately, it is an insane gaming laptop that will need to be built and thus won't be arriving until the end of March.
It's been odd being computer-less for all that time, but I couldn't say I had much time for anything except work as I now do loads of independent contractor work on top of my 45 hour workweek.
I might disappear again for a bit until my laptop arrives, just thought I would give a heads up!
The night before my flight to Ireland, my computer died. Updates will resume when I've finished saving up to buy a new one.
I've been doing 50 hour workweeks. Things will calm down when they eventually train some new people to assist me, but at this point I have no time to devote to fic editing. :(
I will be taking a vacation at the end of June and will be in Ireland for a couple of weeks. Hopefully when I get back, I will be back to the saner 35-40 hour workweeks.
Okay, I am back again to say that for certain I will be posting the next chapter tomorrow! It's been crazy with the move at work, and I am continuously working at least 10 hours a day, which leaves little time for anything but being extra tired!
So, probably just a little earlier than this time tomorrow, I will post. Sorry for the wait!
Hoping to have the next chapter of The Red Curse up within a few days. As I expected, work certainly did NOT calm down as predicted by my boss. Fortunately, things really should calm down by next week. We are moving facilities at the end of this week and my set-up at the new place will facilitate MUCH better organization and time management.
Ahem, this is assuming we actually DO move facilities by the end of this week. There is a chance that may be pushed back.
Sorry again, folks! Trying to edit the second half of this chapter of TRC and my eyes keep drooping closed! I had a 10 hour shift today, and I've worked a total of 42 hours in 4 days this week. I still have one day to go! I house-sit tomorrow after work, though, so I should have some nice peace and quiet in the evening to finish things up.
My boss seems pretty confident things will dramatically slow down next week. I'm a bit dubious...
And thanks for the comments! They are much appreciated.
