Stopped for some fun

My organization is heading into the end of the legislative session and one of our most important bills is in a do-or-die situation. However, we all took a step back to reconnect as a group. There are days when I spend more time with my colleagues then my family. It is a good thing that our boss puts a premium on us having fun together once in a while.

So we closed the office for the day and everyone - including the grad school interns - went to a museum and sculpture park deep in the leafy suburbs. We had a picnic and played lawn games.

And Dominican Dominoes. That was a brutal game.

Sounds like fun! Ironically I was just thinking yesterday after a friend mentioned that she is moving how many of us (me before I was a mom) spend most of our time with our co-workers yet we move to a new job, we can so easily loose touch.

Those dominoes are cool.

Sounds like a great day. I'm still in contact with at least one co-worker from each of my jobs I held as an adult. And not in touch with some (thankfully).

What a fun day and how nice your office did that for all of you. Sounds like they care about their employees. (((HUGS)))

so cool that you get that time "for fun" with your colleagues!

We reconnect where I work, too. Only we call it "Going out for a few drinks after work".

Hi there! I haven't been here (or anywhere) in AGES! I can't begin to tell you how much I've missed you!!!!

Glad you had some fun... Good luck with the "do-or-die" bill!
