FUN FRIDAY - Quest for fun

I'm making it a personal goal to have more fun in my life. So each week, I'll report in something fun I've done. And not to confuse anyone - I have a great, wonderful life. I think I've just gotten out of the habit of seeking out fun.

For our purposes, we'll go with the below definitions:
  • 1. A source of enjoyment, amusement, or pleasure.
  • 2. Enjoyment; amusement.
  • 3. Playful, often noisy, activity.

And now for my fun.

It's been a pretty rough week at work. Wednesday my company had some deep layoffs (thankfully, my job is safe). But of my group of 150, 50 are gone. Friends I've worked with for years. So coming into the office on Thursday was a bit emotional. But as I sat around the lunch table with about eight coworkers Thursday afternoon, we started talking about some random things. Teenage partying. Parties we remembered from when we were younger. One coworker relayed a story of how when he and his wife had gone out to dinner, the Freshman girl across the street had a party (her parents were out of town). My coworker and his wife returned home to find their mailbox stolen. The wife stormed over to the party, barged in, and demanded, "Where is my mailbox?" By the time he finished telling the story, we were in stitches, and, as I'm analyzing my fun-having times, I realized I was having fun. We'd been having tough emotions around the office, and the light-hearted laughter was just what we needed.

So what was your fun this week?

Hmmmm....I think I'm just like you. I don't have enough fun. I did buy an orchid today--something I've always wanted to do. But that's not really fun, is it? Well, I have downloaded to my ipod several episodes of The Office. Now I giggle away on the elliptical at the gym. But I still don't think that's fun. Okay. Let me get back to you!

I mean to also say I'm sorry it's been so rough at work. How horrible to have such a hefty layoff. And this close to Christmas. :(

Glad you and your friends were able to find some fun despite the layoffs. That's got to hurt, right before the holidays.

Laughter does alleviate stress and bad moods. I'll never forget being so stressed out and listening to an audiobook of Junie B. Jone's in the car with the kids. I laughed so hard it was the best relief ever.

Here's to good times and more fun!
