Any Good News?

I need a little good news. Most of what I’m reading/hearing/experiencing seems to be bad news.

Work is, well, annoying. I’ve been given a project to re-invent a process that we have while ignoring the old rules AND building consensus with the people who invented the old rules. Add to that people who are making decisions in areas outside their expertise and declaring them the new rules. Not fun.

At home things are well, but I’m a bit overextended. I’m hoping to work my tail off at home doing the usual weekend stuff on Saturday to give me a full Sunday to do nothing but what I want to do. Wish me luck.

In the rest of the world, life is a bit depressing. We have the 9/11 hearings telling us that we made lots of mistakes avoiding the attacks, that we are likely to be attacked again, and that we aren’t ready for a new attack – all with political spin both ways. The economy is either improving or getting worse – depending on what statistic is published today. In the meantime, the economy at work is definately getting worse. Americans are being kidnapped or killed or kidnapped and then killed.

Do you have any good news? I’ll take anything – your kid hit a home run or got a permanent tooth. Your cat managed not to throw up on the rug once this week. You didn’t burn dinner last night.

Leave some good news in the comments, or better yet trackback to a post of your own. Please.
