Progress is difficult and even though it sometimes comes at the pace of a snail in a 100 year dash, it can be painful. So today, finally, after false starts, techinical difficulties, IT problems, product issues, we have finally gotten our new i-pad POS system up and running. I was not on hand yesterday (Poppa had worked about 14 days straight and needed a day off) to "help" or get in the way. But we have this new system that actually prints tickets to the kitchen and to the bar and eliminates running back and forth between the two. Hopefully it will only take a couple days for everyone to get used to it, and I think if we all take a big breath, we'll most likely ease into it and in a week's time it'll feel like old news. That's the best of all possible worlds. The good news, I guess, is that the old computer that was at the front counter is now the new computer at my little desk in the back of house. I have to get used to a new keyboard, which so far isn't too bad, but at least I won't be switching on and off the internet and printer. So that's good progress.
I know it was a rainy, drippy day yesterday, but because of it, we were able to relax and I feel refreshed and ready to tackle the week! I hope you'll come see us!
