Staying on site through Friday is tough. Doing it with a bit of a hang over is going to make it drag even longer. At least I have a fun team that likes to get out from time to time and have some fun.
On a site note the week has been a big success. Now I have to work my way through the mountain of data it produced.

I just landed on my red eye from San Diego and it's 5:30am. It was a comfortable flight but 4.5 hours of sleep sitting upright is not a good way the start out the week. I have a 3 hour layover here in Washington before I catch my flight to Atlanta. The plan is to do a few hours of work then sleep on the flight to Atlanta. Hopefully that will be enough to get me through the day.
This is going to be a long week in Atlanta too. I don't fly home until Friday and I have the feeling we are going to be putting in 15 hour days. Hopefully it will be interesting though. We are going to be spending the entire week at an airplane manufacturing plant. Or goal is to find inefficiencies, which actually should be pretty easy. The hard part will be convincing the contractor that they can do something about it.
Here's to good week and hopefully a little sleep. At least I'm not traveling next week.

It is really cold here in Dayton. I'm definitely ready for my trip to San Diego this weekend for some sunshine. I arive in SD on Thursday night and am leaving on the red eye Sunday. Ironically i have to fly through DC to get to Atlanta on Monday. The good news is that this weekend trip will bump me up to the next status level on United. Let's hope my first upgrade will be weekend on my red eye.
There has been a little drama at the office too. Our partners for this project have not been up to the task so far. It's been a big time drain checking and redoing there work. The good news is that we had a conversation yesterday and they will now be working semi independently of us. This will free up a lot time. The bad news I will still have to check their work product which makes me a bit nervous about what I will find.

I know it has been forever. Not surprisingly, I lost motivation for a bit so let's give this another try.
Since I last checked it there has been lots going on. There was a project in Los Angeles, a trip to Yosemite, my current project in Dayton Ohio, and the USC v. ND game in South Bend.
I am currently entering my 7th week in Dayton and the plan is to be there through February. So far the project is going well. I think I am finally starting to get the hang of this job. It doesn't hurt having a client that I know a bit about either.
Looking forward I am going to be in San Diego this upcoming weekend then I will be in Atlanta next week. It's going to be a lot of travel but it will be good to be back in CA for a bit.
Here's to a good week. I will try to keep up with this.
