I just wanted to do this little post for when I am feeling less than good about my job. Note to self: Do not complain about your job. Your job is fun. Here are a couple of reasons why it is fun:
A Saturday at Work
Buster Balloon came to perform for us. Here he is with one of his creations...the balloon, not the kid. The kid is the creation of our Circulation Supervisor and his wife...
It is fun to see people come out for the shows excited and happy. We pretty much filled the auditorium for two shows. Very cool.
After the show, the people come into the Children's Room looking for their Summer Reading Program rewards and seeking their perfect next book. It feels good to help them.
A Monday at Work
It was our company picnic. We all got In-N-Out for lunch. They were actually making the burgers to order off the truck, which was nice...but also meant that I didn't have time to order, and wait, and eat my food at the park. I had to eat at my desk after I rushed back because I was scheduled to be on the public desk. That is okay though. Free burgers are good burgers. This was our last big event for this fiscal year. Given the way things are going, I'm sure this event is off the table for next year. But it was fun while it lasted :-)
Thanks for joining me in a celebration of work...can you believe such a thing even exists? Tomorrow, I believe I will talk about things that make non-work life fun. Let's all remember to seek out and appreciate the fun, shall we? Yesssss :-)
