|Wednesday morning I was faced with a database structure dilemma at work. I've found that sometimes the best thing to do when you're baffled is to just walk away and do something else. Working in the garage with the lights on and the doors open at night is an open invitation to every bug in America so I decided to trade my day for night and work on the car in the morning and spend the evening at work. It was nice working in the daylight and being able to have the doors open to keep the fumes down.
I'd under anticipated the amount of time it would take to finish this job. I laid fiberglass for over 3 hours straight and used about half of the gallon of resin I'd just purchased. I'm thrilled its finished (at least on the top) so I can get on to other areas of the car. The mindless work gave me enough time to contemplate my database problem and come up with a viable solution, so it turned out to be a very efficient use of my time. I may have to trade my days for nights more often.
