In which a time out is called

This week, we finally pushed most of the data we’ve been compiling / calculating / re-calculating / testing and otherwise fussing with into the proof-of-concept server.

I’m really surprised it went as well as it did – but not a bit surprised that it didn’t go perfectly and that there are still quite a few Sticky Points we need to get through.

I’ve been working on those sticky points all day; then, about an hour ago, I became aware that I had obviously reached (and shot past, and was now the next county over from) the point of diminishing returns on the whole thing.

Stick a fork in me, cuz I am DONE.

I’ve been sleep deprived, eating poorly, stressing out and otherwise making a basket-case of myself for going on three weeks now; it’s time to let it go for a while.


I have a bit of catching up to do this weekend; a lot of the potatoes are done, the green beans have started coming in, the cucumbers are out of control, by now the louffa may have taken over the neighbor’s yard…I haven’t been monitoring the squash beetle problem in the butternut squash or making sure the okra doesn’t get big enough to use as canoes.

But that will have to wait until tomorrow; I’m exquisitely tired right now, in a way that has far less to do with mere yawning and more to do with the feeling that if I try to “accomplish” even one.more.thing. today, I may burst into hysterics.

Tomorrow is another day – but for the rest of day? I’m going to sit here (or there, or somewhere) and do as close to nothing as I can make myself get.

Happy Friday, y’all – hope you have a restful, rejuvenating weekend!
