The trouble with the Big Project is that the more I work on it, the further away the end of it seems to get. Itís just a bunch of spreadsheets, but it takes me the whole year to get the data together, and all of the spreadsheets have to tell the same story. That means the numbers in one have to correspond to the numbers in all the others. When they donít, Iím in trouble. I might even have to start over.

Thatís what Iím going through these days, and itís the reason Iím a little frustrated. I donít really have to start over whenever I find a discrepancy of fifty-three cents in expenditures of a hundred and twenty thousand dollars, as I did today. But I do have to track those fifty-three cents through all the different spreadsheets and make sure that once I find them, they show up wherever theyíre supposed to.

Piece missing.

So when I get close to the end, and I find another mistake, no matter how small, it means I have to redo things Iíve done and redone a number of times already. It sucks a lot of the fun out of the process, and it tends to dry up whatever good humor Iíve been able to retain. If Iím a little out of sorts, thatís the reason. If I tell you today wasnít a very good day, you can maybe start to see why.
