What a Week
Ever wish you could have lived a week under a rock? Yeah, this was one of those weeks. Started out with a big foohrah about Christmas and ended with a hospital visit. So Monday Derek and I had a big "discussion" about where we're having Christmas and when. Ultimately, I think we have it all figured out. Can't speak for everyone about whether they're happy with the arrangements, but I'm just glad to have everything sorted out. Wednesday we had a major flood at work. A large pipe on the floor above us ruptured and poured hundreds of gallons of water through the ceiling. Our network room experienced the brunt of the flooding. We spent half a day trying to save things from the water. While we lost a lot of equipment, thankfully the major loss was network hubs rather than network drives. Surprisingly, we were back online the next business day thanks to our amazing computer guru who stayed here until 5 a.m. replacing and rewiring. And yesterday, after David & Olga closed on their new house, they spent the rest of the evening in the emergency room. Olga had severe abdominal pain, which they thought was appendicitis. After several tests, the doctors determined it wasn't appendicitis but aren't really sure what is/was causing the pain. She's supposed to see her primary care today and possibly a GI doctor. Tonight I have to finish a long-overdue project for someone at work, pay some bills, do some house cleaning, get some gifts wrapped, and make shopping lists. Tomorrow we have Derek's company Christmas party at the Omni Mandalay in Las Colinas and Sunday I sing the program at John Calvin and maybe have a holiday gathering with the neighbors. Whew, what a week!
