Change of Pace

Every year at my job, we are asked to go and work in a store the day before Thanksgiving since it is the busiest day of the year for us. I decided to go up to Sonoma today and work at the store there. It was not a busy as I had expected from past years working at stores in San Francisco and Marin, but it was steady. I bagged groceries and felt like a teenager again, since that is what I was doing when I was younger. It was so fun talking to the customers, checking out what they are buying, asking them what they are making for Thanksgiving dinner, etc. Wendy came and worked at the store as well so we had fun together working then we had lunch and did our Thanksgiving shopping and went home. My feet hurt! I am not used to standing on a hard cement floor for 5 hours in a row while bending and lifting to assist people with their groceries and heavy turkeys. It was fun though, don't get me wrong, there was a buzz in the air that gave me a spring in my step. A nice addition to the day was that I ran into someone who I had worked with years and years ago. I think the only person reading that has met her is Angela - her name is Loren (she was at my 25th BDay party and I think you two took the bus home together). She is now married and has 2 little boys, I love when things like that happen.
Anyway, today is the Mister's Birthday. We are having a nice evening at home since we both worked today and will celebrate tomorrow. I am making him turkey pot pie with herbed biscuit topping and coconut custard pie (per his request). It should be a nice day, my one and only goal (besides cooking) is to watch Miracle on 34th Street (the original black and white version).
