Chaos

Chaos... Chaos... Chaos....
I get to work this morning- well rested and refreshed after having 6 consecutive days off work. I was actually looking forward to coming into work until the problems started!
I log in to the computer early- I figured that I would have lots of e-mails to go through... I went to Outlook and hit send/receive since I have been off work for a few days I figured I would have at least 100 e-mails to go through.... To my surprise I had none- this was suspicious to me- Then I realized that e-mail was not sending or receiving... Well to make a long story short the domain name elandini was never renewed- even though we sent over the payment for it on 11/04/08. We got it all figured out and now I am waiting patiently to have the servers reset the ip address. I was told that it could take up to 24 hours- I am praying it does not because we are all e-mail dependant- to communicate with our underwriters and companies.
Then- one of my co-workers came into my office and said that things just do not go well when I am not at the office. He hands me stuff to do and then walks off. (let me just say these are the days that I pray for wisdom and patience) Then I get a call from one of my receptionists calling in sick.
I am already tired and wishing this day were over and it is only 10:00 am in the morning!
I need to breathe and count to 10- say a little prayer and keep going!

Not a good start but just remember to take one problem at a time and dont stress yourself out too much.
Will you guys lose any emails because of this problem?

I expected nearly the same amount of emails, and only had 25 to go through this morning. I pray the Lord provided a smoother day for you this afternoon.

Love,
Mike
