Busy, Busy, Busy

Things have been pretty hectic around here. If I haven't been out of my office in a meeting, I have been doing the same from my office. Whew! I have been working on a project for over a year now that is finally about to get implemented. Yay! I am ready for it to go live. We have been working in our system's test environment for a long time now and starting Monday I'll be updating our Live system. It's about time! This week I (along with my counter-part in Lafayette) am going to be finalizing the templates that we are using and after I update our system on Monday it will be time to educate the masses on the changes they are going to see. I anticipate that there will be some resistance to the change, but we tried to make it as painless as possible and I believe most everyone will be more receptive than not.

Outside of the office I have just as much going on. I have so much to get done for our Christmas in East Texas and I am no where near finishing my own Christmas shopping...while tonight I have to go to the grocery store and buy some necessities for the house that I am out of. Friday is Elaine's b'day so we are all going to go out together...Saturday during the day I might join a friend for an outing and that night for a while I am going to be taking care of a neighbor's three-year-old (or is he four??)...after that - who knows??? Sunday Elaine and I will be going to see The Houston Ballet perform the Nutcracker! I am so excited about getting to see it...and I believe Elaine is, too!!!

Next week at work is going to be as busy as this week, so please be patient if I don't post often. I am going to have to sit down tonight and re-prioritize my to-do list or I'll never get caught up!!!
