Being back in the game

Yesterday and this morning has been great. I got to do what I love--being a reporter. The banquet last night was night. In the past, whenever I covered banquets or any event involving food. I never really ate. I would say that I ate before or get a small portion.

This has changed. Last night, I had chicken breast with broccoli and cheese casserole, lima beans and macaroni and cheese. It was delicious. For dessert, I had the best lemon creme cake ever. I realized while driving home that I didn't stress about the meal. This is a odd feeling to eat without feeling guilty.

The county meeting was great. They actually had a verbal tussle and I was the only reporter there. After the meeting, I met the editor and publisher of the paper. The publisher wanted to meet the lady "who was writing such excellent articles." She pointed that I was a rare find in the newspaper world. I wish they were able to afford to hire me but there is no use moaning about this. I am just so glad to be able to write. It keeps me from isolating myself from the world.
