Cognos

This morning, I had a busy day ahead of me, and we decided to drive in, so I could get there a few minutes earlier. I ended up being a little late walking into my office. Thankfully no one noticed. I was hoping for a better day today.
Yesterday afternoon, I got an e-mail from Rooms and Scheduling because they didn’t have enough rooms to accommodate our Tuesday and Thursday class schedule. I was upset, because Nancy isn’t here to help me figure out these changes, and I haven’t been trained really how to build the schedule, so I went where I thought I would find the answers. I still had some things to iron out.
Around 10 am, I had to attend training for Cognos, a new tool the grad admins are going to utilize for pulling data regarding student information, scheduling, enrollments, etc. It is the same tool Drew uses, but he has different access and uses it for different things. The man who hosted the training is someone I met previously through Drew his name is Chris. He recognized me. It was cool that I pretty much knew the person training us, because of my husband. I felt popular for a split second.
After training, I went back to my office, and met with Suzanne (the chair) regarding the schedule. We were able to figure out things for now. We still have some more details to attend to, but it was intense for a minute. I was thankful that I got everything straight, when I spoke to Rooms and Scheduling and forwarded the changes onto them. It will be so interesting to see the proofs.
After the meeting with Suzanne, the afternoon flew by. I was doing last minute things until Mark and I left to go to the Porch. We were going to meet Drew there to discuss our England trip. Once we got to the Porch, Mark and I sat at the bar and waited for Drew. We ordered a couple beers, and then Drew arrived shortly after. We moved to a table, and discussed England, Academics, Philosophy, Sociology, England politics, etc. Everything nothing was off limits.
When we left, it was around 9:30pm. Drew and I stopped off at Wendy’s on the way home. We didn’t eat at the Porch. Mark wasn’t ordering any food, so we didn’t want to eat in front of him, and talk. It just was weird. I decided to call my mother-in-law. I wanted to get an update on Grandma. She had some internal bleeding and had to be rushed back into the OR. She is now resting in ICU, but I am just wondering when is enough, enough for this poor woman.
