My point is... Time off work and plenty to do

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

The sudden weather changes over the past several weeks have inspired me to get out all the heavy winter clothing — after all, it IS officially November — and sort through the fall and Christmas decorations stored in my building. I’ve even tossed around the idea of putting up wallpaper in a bedroom, but that is an “iffy” job that usually needs two people rather than just one. At least in my past experience that has proven accurate.

The problem will be hearing news on the TV and radio and wondering what I’ve missed covering at the newspaper during my time off. Although the newsroom is in perfectly good hands during my absences, this sense of being on top of the latest story is an overpowering essence of my life.

I’ve always heard that “once you get ink in your blood, you never leave it.”

I’m glad that doesn’t apply to all qualities of life, for I have a strong suspicion that if it were, my husband would have poured a couple gallons of Mr. Clean into my blood stream long ago.
