Tough Week

Boy has it been a hard week for all my co-workers.

My office is owned by a huge healthcare system and they
are changing the offices to a new care redesign process.

This means, everyone has to learn new ways of doing their
jobs that will serve the patients better.

One of our Doctors is now starting at 7am and this week was my
week to go in early so the front desk girl will be not there alone.
It was nice leaving at 4pm, but going in at 6:45 was a little hard.

I pray that things get better and much easier for the staff.
Several of the long time girls are suffering from additional job
functions and all the changes.  One of them has decided to retire
early and another one is considering it.

Most of my co-workers that have been with me for
26 + years, hate to see any of them leave!

Today the girls (4) that answer our phones will be going
to another building (centralizing the dept),

Thursday night we had a dinner for them. We laughed
and cried.  Going to miss them so much. One of them
has worked with me for 20 years and a dear friend.

Changes are good if it helps the process, but this change
really hurts our hearts.

I prayed they had a good day and all worked out well for them.

I can't believe its been a month since my last post.

Suppose there is nothing exciting going on during the winter.

Garry's new truck died on us and had to be towed.
It just about didn't fit on the flat bed.

Thankfully warranty covered the tow bill. A sensor went out, so the motor
thought it was 4,000 degrees and shut every thing down.  The more new
stuff they add the more they break!

I got new glasses and have been trying to adjust to them. The last new pair
I had were sent back 3 times before they were right. I hate going back
and forth, it's a real pain. They always think I'm wrong.

Puddles has lab work this week and every thing was great.
Not great enough so we can stop some meds, but he's not getting
worse. He's also doing good getting adjusted to be blind.

We have been bless with great weather. Hope this continues with no
ice or snow storms. Our town shuts down with the 1st snow flake.
