Crazy Work Peeps

Now that I'm back at the office - I will say that they're trying to make it quieter today and not bother me while I write the plan that I was supposed to write on January 2nd... you know the one... the reason that I couldn't have the day off.

Anyway - so I've been here now for 4 months, and have known the entire time that they hired me to restructure and perfect their database... it took us 4 months to get the structure part down... but now they want me to perform a miracle!

I've basically been charged with cleaning up the data, training the employees, and any other issues that might arise in the next 90 days!

Clearly they don't know the amount of time and effort it takes to clean up the data from 10,000 records... and on top of that properly train staff while also being available for the bazillion questions that might arise while they are getting familiar with new processes...

Pray for me for the next few months because this is going to be a very tedious and stressful process!! I know that there is a reason I've been put here - and hopefully when we get on the other side of this - things will run much more smoothly on a day to day basis... but that doesn't make the next few weeks any less daunting of a task.

I guess it's a good thing that I got the migraine medicine on my side today - because I might need quite a bit of it over the next quarter!
