current mood: chipper
We've been putting together a massive proposal for the client. I've been freaking out about it, as we've had a month to do it, and it's gone a lot slower than I'd have liked. However, we nearly finished it up today. We have a few pieces to review, some things to add tomorrow, and tables of contents to make. One of our finance people will review it to make sure we're not completely failing at the math. Then, we'll put it all together and mail it off. If we get it off tomorrow, it'll be a day early!
I cannot express how happy this makes me! There's been a lot of people working on this, including many outside my team. My boss has done amazingly well at putting it all together. Well, not amazingly, considering he's my boss and should be able to do stuff like this. Anyway, I know if it'd been left to me, we'd have been in real trouble, especially with me having been sick these last few days. It's really come together amazingly well. Now to just hope that the client likes at least a few of the ideas. They can't go for all of them without breaking the bank. We might have gone a little overboard, I suppose, but this is the first time we've really had a chance to give them our views on what we should be doing for them and know that they'll give it fair consideration. I'm really proud of what we've been able to accomplish in bringing together people from outside our department, too. We've been trying to do that for years, and it's been painful, but finally it's bearing fruit!
Add to that that I'm on the mend from another round of sickness, have a plan with the primary president to deal with the cold/flu season without having to give up teaching the kids entirely, and that Doc Martin season 4 ended on a really good note, and life is looking good! Also, I've been better at taking my happy pills. Better living through chemistry! I might even get around to cleaning my bedroom, at least a bit. (Though let's not set our sights toooo high.) ;)
