Got the call around 8:30 am, and by a quarter after nine yesterday I was at the local farmers market schlepping produce for a group of people I'd never met before.
It was busy. I couldn't venture a guess as to how many customers we saw, but it was non-stop for more than five hours. And I couldn't have been happier...you couldn't wipe the stupid smile off my face the whole day.
I love people. It's the thing I miss most about work. Being part of a team, helping others find the things they need, being constantly surrounded by faces and voices and conversation...I love being part of the big social engine. It energizes and excites me. It makes me happy.
I need to get back to work, and soon.
