Thursday Night

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?


  1. Sounds perfect, especially in March when it's not quite spring and the end of the year is oh so far away.

  2. This sounds so fun. And I hear ya, it's stuff like this that you really don't think you want to do when you just feel tired but then once you get going you are so glad you did it!

  3. That sounds like a fun way to spend some time! With me, the tiredness usually wins out....Good for you for not giving in. :-) ~JudyK
