Sleeping on the Job

I was at work last week when my concentration was interrupted by someone snoring! I peeked my head out of my office and saw a co-worker sleeping on the job - literally! I was sad no one was around at the time to play a joke or laugh about it, so I snapped a pic with my phone to laugh about it later with Bret. I considered posting the pic with this blog (it is classic), but I haven't decided if that is a good idea yet!

It is common for this person to put their head down on their desk for a while when they are stressed out, making them look like we are back in the second grade and waiting to be excused for lunch time. However, this was the first time I've ever had confirmation that they have been sleeping.

While I don't sleep on the job literally, I thought about what I do in the figurative sense. While I spend some time with Bret on Instant Messenger, I don't necessarily think it detracts from my productivity. However, I'm definitely guilty of doing some online shopping at work. So, are you "sleeping on the job?" If so, what are you doing?

Birthday Boy

Well, Bret made it to his 30th birthday and lived to tell about it! Here is the birthday boy next to his "Golf" cake. He may be 30 years old, but he still has curiosity that would rival my two and four year old nephews. He kept picking off and eating the frosting grass from the back of the cake and poking in the dimples of the golf ball layer before everyone arrived for his birthday dinner. I know and love that he will forever be young at heart! I've been teasing him this whole month about getting old, but it is especially fun to give him a hard time right now because he is hobbling around on crutches from having his ACL repaired. Poor guy!
