Project From Hell

So, Mr. Know-It-All handed me a project last week and it involves breaking MONTHLY data for the LAST THIRTY YEARS down into daily data. Why they can't just use the MONTHLY data is beyond me. So, I've been working on this project. Meanwhile, I have stuff I *NEED* to get done that isn't getting done and there is no light at the end of the tunnel with this project. Well, I suppose the light at the end of the tunnel is that it needs to be done by the end of tomorrow and I've got 7 of 30 years done so far.

It's tedious. It involves calculations. It CANNOT be automated. And it's making me LONG to do tasks that are really not my favorite things to do because at least I wouldn't be doing this TEDIOUS project.

I haven't had the performance review yet and you KNOW that I am not griping about that. I'll be perfectly happy if it NEVER happens.

Long weekend this weekend (I get Friday off) so I am hoping to be able to get some things done around the house. I need to get to the Post Office for sure. And need to contact the landlord again because non-working appliances are a pain in the posterior. And really, three weeks is a LONG time to be without one of your major appliances. (Fortunately, it's the one I am most able to devise a work-around for).

Tomorrow, I have things I must get done. Other than the Project from Hell. Wish me luck!
