Welcome to my blog. Thanks for coming! One day I hope my little piece of internet real estate will be home to lots of family photos, pictures of my scrapbook and card art, with some random thoughts and memories posted on a somewhat regular basis. Mostly my world is very predictable, but occasionally some excitement will find me, so visit often. Who knows what useful (or useless) information you may find here.

The Best Laid Plans...

...oft go awry.  Such was the case with our Meditech upgrade.  Oh, it finally happened, but it was on up in the day.  It was close to 9 a.m. before I started working, and it was pretty slow-go, having to work off-line.  It was sometime around noon before the All Clear sound was heard.  Then we had to process all the work we had done this morning so that it would interface into the new and improved, upgraded Meditech system.  bleh.

However, just a few feet away from my desk, the most PERFECT day was right outside my window, and I just couldn't be grumpy about an imperfect day at work.  A few days ago I was lamenting that it looked like we were jumping straight from winter into summer, and moaning about the lack of a spring season to enjoy.  Since the rains last week, the days and nights have been splendid, and I've been able to keep the windows open in my room.  I just can't tell you how much pleasure that brings.  This is the most perfect spring I can remember in a very long time.

So it was the beautiful day outside that helped chase away the grumpies of a delayed finish to the upgrade, resulting in a very unproductive day (translated = very little money).  Everything seems to be running smoothly now, so tomorrow we should be back to normal.  Looks like the weather is going to hold until at least the weekend, so that's something else to be happy about. 

Life is often tough and sometimes things don't go the way we plan. Hearts are broken, loved ones are lost, dreams are crushed.  But the good things, the blessings, are there too, if we'll just look for them, and acknowledge them.  This week I am thankful for the beautiful springtime weather.  And tonight I'm thankful for a successful (even if delayed) upgrade.
