The Joys of Working Full-Time Again
It's a really unique market, with the best local farmers bringing their produce, the local artisan bakers bringing their goodies, kids cooking classes, musical and dancing performances each week, a celebrity or interesting local person rings the market bell to open the market and cool tenant give-aways, too. I could on, but the list is too long.
Having an event every week is very exhausting. Your adrenaline shoots up the day before, the day of and all during the event. The following day you're wiped out and then you recover. I am just now getting used to this routine. But I have to say that I love it. For now.
My family sort of has to get involved to. Otherwise, we are not doing as much together. Time will fly by and all of a sudden, Laura is back to Dickinson for her sophomore year! I want some quality time with my baby girl. I still feel like I haven't given her all the knowledge a Mom should give to her children. (And maybe you never feel like you've given enough).
This morning, I woke up at 5 am worrying about which umbrellas and stands we should purchase for the market. I found some that might be perfect. But one shouldn't ever worry about umbrellas nor wake up so early thinking about a work issue. You should be sleeping soundly next to your partner. Someone should tell my system that!
I also need to learn how to turn on the on and off button. Work sometimes, play sometimes. It is all this empty nest Mom can handle, that's for sure.
