There is a series of classes that all leaders in my company have to go through. The first time I was to attend was right around when Sam was to be born. I was able to bow out as I was going to miss at least two of five sessions.
It's been a year and a half and they have cycled back around to me. Five sessions, once a week every other week meaning they'll be done ten weeks from now.
THEY'RE ON TUESDAYS! I normally try to escape work between 3 and 3:30 on Tuesdays so that I can meet up with the group at the Beech. Now I'll be stuck inside until 5:00 every other week. Going to be mighty hard to concentrate on the subject material.
