I've Never Done This Before, But I like it!

Hello all, I wanted to write a post because I haven't written on in ages. I feel like I start all of my posts apologizing for not posting. I just haven't had much to write about lately. Life is good and I am enjoying myself.

I did do something yesterday that I have never done before. I volunteered at a food bank. Yep. I volunteered sorting food and boxing it up and I actually loved it. That old cliche of it feeling good to give back was actually true. I never thought I would have fun sorting and boxing food in a warehouse for homeless people but I did.

It was weird though because I had the mindset that I was going to work my butt off and get it in! After a half hour in a whistle blows and I hear "Break time!" and everyone walks off the floor. I was standing there looking around like 'What? What just happened?' ' I was just getting into a grove. Are you serious?' So we all go into a break room for 15 mins then head back out to the warehouse. about 50 minutes later I hear, "OK, Time to clean up. Clean up!" Again I stand there looking like 'What?' Just as we get into it they quit.

I must say that the whole process was run like clockwork. I would move one box to another station and there was a person behind me placing an empty box in its place. Wow. Magic.

I'm currently in the midst of doing something I've never done before too. In my case, I'm entering recipes that have been provided to me by members or former members or friends of a friend, etc., to our church, in particular, our Women's Group there. In addition to that, I'm not doing advertising sales for the cookbook we are preparing too. And ya know what? I am enjoying it all to the max! Do you suppose this is the kind of career I should have had all along?
