Next week I'm going to shut down the department early in the afternoon and take the staff out bowling. The past several months have been extremely hectic here in our department. The demands of the day have been taking their toll on our usually cheerful department, so I felt it was time to blow off some steam and have some fun. I hope that this small gesture will give the staff a morale boost and invigorate them. It's been a long hard winter. We have been battling a tough economy and the organization has been leaning on us to produce. I think we need this little break just to lighten the mood here and get back to normal. Hopefully Between this and relaxing the cake rule we can have a happy group once more!
