It's been a while....

It's been a while since my last post, and I sincerely apologize.  I've had so much going on lately, I really put my "blogging" on the back burner.  I write as if I do this for a living, but it's just a hobby...I must tell myself that!  :o)

So what's been going on since my last post?

The last time I wrote was around Easter time.  We had just had our condo broken into, but we don't have an update there, unfortunately.  I guess the police want us to do the investigation ourselves, and then they'll take action once we find all of my missing jewelry (and Scott's ZUNE player, which we didn't realize was missing).  So basically, we'll never have an answer.

Our MASSIVE project at work has finally launched, and we're currently in week 5.  The project, which was probably bigger than any of us really recognized, was to switch over ERP systems.  We were working with ChESS, which is an Oracle system (I think).  It's so old, it basically worked off of DOS.  Everything was access through key strokes, no mose necessary (Now that's OLD!).  We have switched over to SAP and the project to switchover took over 2 years, because of all the modifications that were made to the system.  Either way, we went live with SAP on May 3.  My schedule for the first two weeks was 5:00AM - 5:00PM.  I was supposed to be able to leave work at 2:00PM, but anyone who works with 24-hr shift coverage knows that getting out early never actually works.  Lately I've gone back to a regular schedule, which is much nicer!  I feel like an SAP pro....

Finally, one of the huge things that has happened since I last blogged is mine and Scott's newfound hobby of biking.  We bought bikes a while ago, but we've finally started to really get into it and go on some more serious bikerides.  I have to say, it's been really great!  Now I just need to get myself in shape so that I'm not so pooped after the ride!

Hopefully I'll keep writing and not be so much of a slacker!!!
