I'm a frayed knot

...at the end of my rope, but

WE MADE OUR DEADLINE!
\o/ \o/ \o/



I loaded my data tonight at a quarter to nine. Tomorrow real users come in and post real transactions in the real system.

It's all over but the shouting. Mind you, there'll be plenty of that. And sweeping up, and details, and transitional angst of every variety.

But we did it.

OMG, I feel like a rubber band that's been stretched too far, going boi-oi-oi-oing.

*hands you celebratory drink of your choice*

(It's a magic drink, I don't have to know what it is before I pour it. You can probably change your mind half-way through and it will transform to match your desires.)

I'm feeling very loosey-goosey right now! Trying not to think "What's next?" but one does wonder...

Whoo Hoooo!!!! I know how relieved you are today! What a day for celebration! Your entire team must be elated! Does this mean you get to relax over Thanksgiving dinner and maybe take Friday off too??? You deserve a huge hug!!! *huggggggggg*

Hee! Days off? Still no. I'll be here half a day tomorrow, all day Friday, and very likely Saturday. But Sunday's looking good, and next week, despite my having to be "on-call" for a couple of 24 hour stints, should be getting back to a more normal schedule.

Hope we're still on for the 6th, because damn! I feel like I haven't seen a friend in weeks. Because I haven't.
