Itchin' to be free

It's patch season at work. We apply updates to the financial system, and it takes many, many person-hours to accomplish a set of assiduous and detailed testing tasks, a disproportionate number of them labeled with my name.

So I've been putting in the extra hours as required, arriving before 9:00 and not getting home till near 8:00 p.m., and it's driving me CRAZY. I'm a detail-oriented person, but nobody has this much focus. The work structure is full of interruptions and conflicting demands. Yesterday I managed a whole two hours of focus on a particularly heinous test (involving, of all the dire things, taxation), but only at the expense of being rude to some people.

In the win column: a wonderful new healthcare provider has assured me that my recent brain fog is definitely not a disease state, and almost certainly the result of hormonal imbalance. So I'm now on a hormone regimen and reorganizing myself around restored mental capacity, and it's pretty fantastic.

Now if I could just get some time--time to myself, time to think, time to knit, time to write, time to work on my kitchen soffit project--the world would be awesome.
