Practicing Dodge Ball

I almost forgot to post today. I'll be surprised if I don't miss a day.

Anyway I'm thankful that I can practice dodge ball (at least throwing and catching) at work thanks to Sampson, a third grader with a good arm. It's just amazing to me that this "counts" as working, and I am constantly gratified by the fact that I'm not sitting at a desk wondering when it'll be 5:45 and time to start packing up. Or better yet still sitting at my desk at 7:30 hoping that a case will settle so I can go home. Or pondering what ball is going to drop since entirely too much has been piled on my plate.

p.s. I'm thankful for caramel truffle flavored coffee.

If I remember correctly, I do recollect reading a comment from you, on another blog, about the many temptations at work.

I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same, huh?

That poor caramel truffle coffee didn't stand a chance. :D

I think we should all be allowed to whip things at each other during work. I really feel like that would improve the workplace!!!

All this fun you are having means that you are never on IM anymore. Boo!

Ella: And when I am on IM, you're not! But all in all, it's nice not to have a job that requires gmail chat to stay awake/alert:)

appletini: This is sooo yummy.

AM: I think that as well as Healy's for everyone would improve productivity.

Aaron: Nah. In this case, the more things change the more different they are. And I couldn't be more glad. Oh, and that comment wasn't about work.

Dude. I just got your comment and then had to go find this old post of mine because I was like, OMG how perfect. So perfect, in fact, that it almost frightened me.

I played dodgeball with grade 2 kids today and really got into it!! Glad you are really enjoying your job Ally, I love hearing about people who have found careers that make them so happy. (Oh, and suggestion- if you haven't played capture the flag in the gym, you are missing out!)
