I should learn to back my own information up on my local hard drive at work. It’s not like both my laptop and the network hard drive will crash at the same time. Today I had the joy of trying to redo about a week’s worth of work. I have no clue what happened other than a mostly full hard drive crashed last night. Today when I went in to figure out what was missing, I found files from Feb 18 were there, but there were some files missing that I did on Feb 15! Grr! All of this is very frustrating because I’ve worked on this information for this customer for a full year. In the last 2 weeks, I’ve been updating all of the files with the new information. Only to have some of it lost, and some not. I am having to go through everything with a fine tooth comb. The manager of my department says not to worry about it, the IT department is trying to find the rest of the lost data. Yea, like I can chance the wrong information being used in the meantime. I worked on this for a FULL YEAR.
Update routines for work are finally done, so I should be able to get some sleep now. Instead, I think a hot bath and a book sounds like a good plan. I had been counting on a business trip in April to give me some time away, but I found out today that wasn’t going to happen. Yet another reason that I had a crappy day.
I promised my son that I would try to find a time we could take a “weekend” trip to Branson since I can’t send him to his dad’s for spring break. Actually, it’s a good thing I didn’t buy the tickets, he has tennis practice all during spring break. Maybe I should just take myself and the 2 yo? Nah, I promised the older one. He’s the one that’ll enjoy it more. We lived there long enough that it’ll seem nice to be able to visit old friends.
