Celebrate The Small Things- Out of the Office

Thanks to Viklit for hosting!

Well, it's Friday and today I'm out surviving a friend's wedding.  (I'm writing this Thursday night, before heading off to a rehearsal dinner.)  So forgive me for taking a little longer than usual to stop by and celebrate with you all- I promise I will be around towards Sunday-Monday-ish.  But in the meantime, let's celebrate!

New Form  I finished learning Kong Sang Koon (a.k.a the mother of all Pyung Ahn forms) on Tuesday and it is awesome.  It's hard and there are a few moves that my brain can't quite make sense of yet in a "how the hell do I get my body to do that?" sort-of way but I've got the pattern down which is a big accomplishment.  Now, let me rep it out say, ten thousand times, and I'll get the hang of it.  And eventually, it'll look as cool as it looks when I watch other people perform it and then I'll really celebrate!

New Med Records OS  The new program for all of our clinical charting went live on Monday and it was, as expected, a nightmare.  There were documents that hadn't been built yet, critical functions that weren't working, overwhelming confusion and more calls to tech support than our hospital normally sees in a year.  BUT, and here's the celebration, it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been.  I was actually able to complete all the notes, treatment plans and census updates I needed to.  It took a whole lot of tech support but all of the consultants on campus were extremely nice and understanding, even when I called them for the third time that day.  And while it's still a long way from where we need it to be in order to do all our required documentation smoothly it's in significantly better shape than one might expect.  Plus the first week is always the hardest so that's a big reason to celebrate!

New Married Couple  If you're reading this Friday afternoon then there is a newly wed couple in the world celebrating- in a BIG way- their nuptials.  And I am celebrating with them.  'Nough said.

Well, that's it!  Now, as always, hop along!



  1. Hope you have fun at the wedding! :)
