Right now I'm at the regional team retreat. Which, honestly, is more of a "sleepover." You know, a big co-ed sleepover. Pretty fun, actually. We're staying at The DreamGiver's Inn.
The best moment of our little getaway so far was Alex Kettles starting a fire with Bob Monaco. They couldn't figure out how to open the flue so they filled the whole beautiful house with smoke. Steve Ellisen came to help, opened the little glass doors and got a face full of smoke. It made me laugh and laugh. Everyone refused to call the lady who runs the place.
Turned out that the "ornamental knob" on the front could also be called, "the flue."
So now Matt and Steve are playing chess behind me. Bob is telling me stories, Cas, Kim, Kerri and Paula are hanging out in front of the fire. Krista's off getting a massage. Alex just welcomed Sue home (she drove in from California today).
And if you haven't figured it out, these are my co-workers and friends and we're having a relaxing evening tonight.
