Journal FortKnox's Journal: Life of FK (& Joey Photoshop link) 21

Well, I haven't written much of my life, so here's a nice long story to bore you.

I had mentioned before that our house is full (BIL, SIL, 2 nephews). Well, this weekend, they left and are visiting my mother&father-in-law in Maine. They'll be gone for a good 2 weeks. So I get some relax time at home, right?


Work is busy, I am on two projects, both having similar deadlines, so I'm bound to have lotsa overtime this week and next....

And now I got assigned a 'side job' project (which is pretty big on its own) as a favor to some guy (I'm still getting paid). The problem with this '3rd project' is that another guy stepped in and said it'd take 2 weeks to do and he'd have it done in mid-July. Well, this project I think will take 3-6 months to complete (why such a large gap? No requirements or anything, just question/answer sessions), and I'm already 1 month behind the schedule.

So I tell him I'm swamped this week, and now he's worried that I may back out like the original guy. So much for 2 weeks of relaxation in my house......

BTW - I did download ET yesterday, but haven't had a chance to play it. When I get home, my aim is to get a prototype done, then I'll jump into the game (I'll use the name "FortKnox" so if you see me, pop in and say hi).

And the Joey Photoshop is now up on Fark.
