Almost there...

Mostly recovered, I'm back at work facing new and exciting issues. I've got an interview with Jackie for the Delphi project this afternoon at 3:30. I'm not sure whether I want that to go well or not. On the one hand, I'd love to learn Oracle. On the other hand, I don't think I'll have an opportunity to learn so many facets of the system as I have had with PeopleSoft HRMS. Then again, it's a job. Then again, it's another project based job and I'll be in the same position again (facing layoffs) this time next year. And there's the problem that this project is not going well. It's missed a bunch of deadlines already. It's a bit scary to say the least. We shall see. If I could just plan to stay where I am and continue to help my current users become proficient, that would be great, but since that isn't an option, I guess the Delphi project is a job, and I need one of those, so I'll take it if I get it.

The weekend was fairly leisurely. We went for a short hike on Sunday at Castle Rock with Athena, Cyrus, Christyn, Jim, and Pete. It was nice to get out to the woods for a while. I'm a forest person. When I want to go out and see nature, I want to go to the hills. The beach holds nothing special for me. Sand and surf is not enough to inspire me, but give me a few hundred soaring trees against the backdrop of a blue sky and I'm in heaven. I'm way overdue for a trip to my grandparents cabin at Quintette.
