I'm ditching school today. I don't really have the will to go, and I don't have my homework done.
Early Sunday morning, I was at work, inputting codes into the new computer system. I went to write up an estimate for a client on the old one (AVS), and it decided that it was no longer going to recognize the printer.
So I wrote up an estimate by hand, and spent the next few hours trying to get the computer to talk to the printer. It never did.
In the morning, I made an executive decision. Even though we were not ready, the codes were not all in, the inventory was not input, and most of the weekend staff was not fully trained, we were going to start using the system that morning. The doctor freaked out for two hours that we were not ready to do it.
We did it.
And you know what? it went okay. It was a little tough trying to train someone up so quickly. There were a lot of hastily scribbled post-it notes. But it's an easy, logical system, and everyone got the hang of it pretty quickly.
There's a huge weight off of my shoulders knowing that the new system is installed and running, and all i have to do from this point is fine-tune it. That, and count every pill in the hospital to note them in the system. That should be fun.
So michael has been up here since yesterday morning, and it is really wonderful. I love sharing my home with him. I love lying around in bed half the day and doing nothing. I love drinking whiskey with him until i can barely talk. He brought me a new bottle. Isn't that sweet?
We went out to dinner last night, put up with a rude waitress, drank margaritas and stuffed ourselves. We do this just about every Sunday night.
I don't want to go back to real life.
This week seems like it will be better than last, though. I actually get to sleep some nights.
