Friday was our Wellness Friday! We started out the morning discussing ideas for future Wellness Fridays. I had arranged for an answering service to cover our phones for the day (for merely $25 the entire day!). A lot of the ideas got vetoed by the bosses but whatever. At least we did come up with enough to cover probably the rest of the year.
At 11:30, we headed off to LuLu's Thai Noodle restaurant, where I had made reservations. Even though I had noted that in my nightly list, I was still questioned by the WB, in front of everyone, whether I had made them or not. Grrr. But lunch was nice.
After lunch, it was back to the office to catch up on messages - and I had quite a productive break as I ended up scheduling a meeting with both bosses to meet with the director of the Hispanic Development Foundation for a grant funding meeting in April, and I also talked to a printer about printing flyers for an upcoming event on April 5 for our nonprofit clinic! Then we workerbees played hangman using immigration terms. That was fun!
Then we headed off to learn how to Swing Dance at the KC Ballet School. The beauty of this is that we were ALL ON THE SAME LEVEL, including the two bosses! I was concerned about the partner situation as there are 5 men and 7 women - but the instructor had the men form an inner circle, the women form an outer circle, and then as we learned the steps the men would rotate so that everyone danced with everyone! We all worked up quite the sweat in the 90 minutes we were there and there was a lot of laughing going on! You really had to concentrate and coordinate with your partner the steps and timing and when to twirl and how not to crash into each other. All the ladies got to dance with all the men several times. for me, I found it was best if I just watched my partner's feet and counted. lol. I think the HB had the worst moves of all. Another coworker and I were determined to "get it right!" and really focused on that each time we partnered up. We were like "we can DO this!" But what I liked best is that this was something both the BOSSES were equally "bad" at! And we all had a great time.
After that was done, all but 2 of us met at a bar down the street, and we all had a couple of drinks (me, iced tea!). Ended up leaving just ahead of 5.
We are under a Winter Weather Advisory (just upgraded to a Winter Weather WARNING this morning) and since it was early, I went and picked up my new glasses and was able to get my Saturday morning running around done last night. I just have 2 places to go today. Now I'm waiting for my friend, Kevin, to call me and we're meeting for breakfast. Then I have most of the rest of the weekend to relax.
