A pretty good couple of days

Yesterday, we (that being all of us at my new place of employment) finished our visit from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO, an acronym that we in the business pronounce "Jay-co"). I am happy to say that we were fully accredited (the alternatives being "Conditional Accreditation" which requires a follow-up visit) or failure (which I've never actually seen happen at a hospital around here).

So that's done, and my department came through without a scratch. While I can't take much credit for this, since I've only been there for four weeks and most of the prep was done before I arrived, it's still "my" department and, as such, I'm happy we didn't have any problems.

With that behind us, I felt like this long weekend would be nice and relaxing. So far, it has turned out to be just that. It's only Saturday morning, but I've already had a nice weekend. Marc made us pancakes for breakfast which I ate in the sunroom. Then we opened up the Times and sat out there, with some music coming from the Bose system, reading the paper.

After a couple of hours of that, we're going to start the rest of our day. I've had some indication that a little playtime may be heading my way (always a nice thing), after which we will go do some errands. Exciting things like a trip to the upholsterer's and Petco await us.

Jeff may come to visit us tomorrow afternoon. Also, a certain Pony is somewhere in the area. I know this, because I felt a disturbance in the force. Also, he told me he would be. :) I've left him a couple of messages but haven't heard back yet. If I do, we may get to meat meet him.

This weekend is looking good. Even the weather is nice. I hope everyone has a great weekend! And do be sure to say hi if you're in the neighborhood! :)

Sounds like a great weekend. Congrats on all the good stuff at work last week...

I'm a teacher and just started a 10 week vacation... So, I'm as happy as a pig know...

Anyway, I saw your comment over at David's place and thought I'd check you out tonight!
