I love my life outside of work. I did not enjoy working for the person I worked for and now for the next year I won't have to. That is a real bonus.
The downside? Implemenations are fraught with stress, hard work and challenges.
I've ridden this horse before. I've been involved in many implementations and upgrades.
I know what it takes. I'm just not sure I want to work that hard. Honestly I have not had a break in 10 years from being on either an upgrade or implementation cycle.
I need some rest.
I'll be part of a team implementing a new budget system. It is a high profile project with a lot of eyes watching us. While ramping up on this project I also have another department implementing the AR and Billing system in early April, which I currently support. Basically I have a lot on my plate right now.
The flip side is I get to work side-by-side with my friend Jamie. This woman is incredible. She's smart, innovative and works extremely hard. There is always a lot of challenge implementing a new product and this system utilizes some technology which is new to our employer, and us.
What that means is less time for my creative pursuits.
Like this: Some newly spun Blue Moon Fiber Arts Blue Faced Leicester. I like spinning this fiber a lot. I can't wait to get two bobbins full to ply.
Isn't it pretty?
I also got a note from Jean Wong saying she gave her schedule to Suzanne at Madrona Fiber Arts. I hope they schedule some regular, ongoing classes with Jean. Somehow I'll just have to fit all the things I want to do, in.
