I had a BABY!
But I HAVE been gone for quite some time, haven't I? That's because I decided to take what I call a "breather" because I was doing so many things! I had a new job (which still feels new, though it's been a while yet) and I was taking a photography class. The class ended after six weeks and I might take another one. I will post pictures soon, if I can learn how which I'm sure I can.
My new job is GREAT! It is so exciting to be in the "middle" of eveything that is going on. I get called in at 2 in the morning sometimes if some news breaks and they need someone to man the phones and keep their ears peeled on the scanners. I've made great friends with all the producers, most of the photographers, and 4 of the reporters. There are three other "deskies" as we call them that I work with, and they are great.
What has been the most important story I've worked on so far, you are probably asking? Well, I got a call from a woman who had raccoons living in her attic and her sister had a terminal illness and couldn't leave her bed and the raccoons would keep her up at night and the caller was worried that the raccoons would come downstairs and attack her sister or ruin the equipment that was keeping her alive. I told everyone about this at the morning editorial meeting and they all thought it was crazy, but I said it was interesting so they did the story! It got picked up on the national feed and I think people all over the country saw it! Did you?
Well, that's enough for now. My friend Kellie is coming over so we can go get salads! The perfect meal for such a hot hot day!
