Heading Towards the New Year

The final countdown to the New Year is in full swing, only four more days to go until 2010. Everyone is getting their New Year's Eve plans into place.

We're back in the office this week for a second abbreviated week. We're closing early on Thursday for New Year's Eve and then be off on New Year's Day. It's a great time to clean up some of the smaller outstanding projects and prepare for the New Year.

I've been setting up a printer, updating some software, installing drivers and other miscellaneous computer tasks that just, take time, and are always better done on a slow day.

We've had a really great cheese ball here in the office. Our hygienist put it together on Christmas Eve and it has time to mellow over the weekend. It definitely got better with a little age, although it was great on the first day. I may make this for New Year's Eve.
