Tuesday morning, I came into work and noticed something odd on the table in our work area.
As people started filtering into the office, various theories of what exactly it was were thrown out. Now before someone asks, I do not need to flip the photo. It really was backwards, hence our confusion. The most immediate thought is that it was a backwards question mark. But why backwards? Throughout the day, various people from other parts of the building walked by and gave their opinions as to what it was and who did it. Some of the more creative ones…fish hook and a noose. Someone suggested that maybe we have staffer who is dyslexic. By late afternoon as a few of us worked frantically to finish a report for our national office by the end of the day, we decided to break into the candy. We did have a rule that you had to follow in order to take a piece…You had to create a new symbol or word with the remaining pieces. We had things like the word “Who” and an arrow pointing to the VP’s office. It got quite entertaining. Today we got it to an equal sign and then a dash. Can you tell it’s the end of the year for us and our minds are almost gone?
In other pictures, these are the lovely little signs along the highway that tell you how long it will take to get to a certain exit or where an accident is located.
This morning it was NOT my friend. I only have to drive 10 miles to the office, typically it takes 12-15 minutes in the morning. Today was not one of those days. I got onto the highway and while it was a little slow, it picked up to normal fairly quickly until just before the sign that says I have 8 miles to get to my exit. This morning that nice, little sign said 25 minutes… to go EIGHT miles! Yeah, that’s the way to start the morning.
Finally, I started in a new small group tonight at church. It’s through the women’s ministry and I didn’t know what age range etc. these women would be. Two of the girls there tonight are my age and another is a little older than us. The funny part is that four of the six there tonight work in the non-profit arena. Pretty cool huh? I think it’ll be good to get to know some people in the church and get more involved.
