For those who’ve been following my ongoing soap opera, I’ve entered a new chapter. I’ve been engaged for a project that in some ways is a dream project and in others a blamed inconvenience.
The dream part of it is that I’ll be a worker bee/project manager for a substantial project over a six month time frame. Basically, I’ll be doing some design work, some project planning, some project management. Maybe a little grunt labor, too, since it’s my nature to get my hands dirty a little. I’m not unfamiliar with the subject matter of the project but it’s not a complete re-run of anything I’ve been doing over and over.
The best part of all is that the client I’ll be working for is a new client who has substantial potential for future projects of this sort.
The inconvenience part of it is that I’ll need to put substantial time in on it on a regular M-F 9-5 basis—the first time I’ve done that in almost twenty years. Welcome back to the old grind.
Oh, well. The pay is decent—I’ll make more doing this project than I’ve earned in aggregate in the last two years.
I don’t plan to stop blogging but it may cut down on my output a bit. Expect more early morning and evening posts.
