I'm So Happy 

I've gotten a chance at work to break out of my normal tech writing routine, and am creating an-easy-to-use but solves-all-your-problems Access database for someone. They've been using an Excel spreadsheet, without very good results. I used to do a lot of Access design work in my former career, and I had forgotten how fun it is. I'm creating tables, queries, forms, and reports. I'm redesigning relationships, normalizing data, tweaking lookup instructions, modifying input masks, seeking out redundancies, experimenting with colors and formats, anticipating future needs, targeting usability.

I'm in geek heaven.
