Thursday is not my favorite day of the week. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because on Thursday I am thisclose to the weekend, but not there yet. Maybe it's because my kids and I go the whole afternoon with no specials or other breaks. Maybe it's just because by the time Thursday afternoon rolls around I'm just tired.
This Thursday, though, I managed to work up the energy to join several colleagues along with a few from a neighboring elementary school to spend time together socializing and playing Whirlyball. For those of you who don't know, Whirlyball kind of like lacrosse played in bumper cars. I spent an enjoyable two hours chatting with colleagues I don't always get to see during the school day because our classrooms are nowhere near each other or we miss each other at lunch.
When I first got home from school, I was regretting signing up for this social outing. I just wasn't feeling it, and all I wanted to do was put on my jammies and cozy up with a book for the evening. It didn't take long, however, for me to be glad I went.
Laughter. Drinks. Good conversation. What else could I want on a Thursday afternoon?
