Over the weekend we rolled out a software system that my and my team have been working on for 14 months. Today, it is running, and being used (successfully, so far) and I am just basking in the good feelings I have about the whole process and the system we’ve put together.

For the first time in a couple of months, I don’t feel pressed to squeeze as much work as I can every minute of the day. Last week along I worked over 80 hours to get the system out the door. It feels good to finally not feel under such a crunch.

So I hope no one minds if I just drop this short post here today as I take it easy and try to reintergrate myself in normal hours and normal life.
