Woohoo! I am on the rebound! Things are looking up. I am finding positivity again. This year has not been all sunshine and roses. Work has really been slowing down. Well, that's not the best description because even though I didn't work this weekend, the factory did work Saturday and Sunday, and several of my design engineering coworkers were down there to support them. However, for my particular areas of responsibility, the vast majority of the bugs have been worked out and we have reached some level of stability.
The product will never be perfect and we have teams of people to deal with the continuing issues of production and I am coming to grips with the idea that I am not one of those people to solve all of the day to day issues, at this point in time. There is so much more I could say, so tune in Wednesday for a blog post about new product issues!
Exercising was all over the place. I only ran twice for 6.4 miles. My left leg was hurting, so I backed off. I was so tired Wednesday and Thursday I took both days completely off, except for a couple short 20 minute walks. Then Saturday I bicycled for 3.5 hours over 53 miles. So... I need to be healthy, and if that means I don't run or bicycle for two days in a row, a rarity for me, then so bit it.
