Light at the end of the tunnel

A week ago, I agreed to do all the best of 2009 stuff since my car was in the shop. I didn't count the number of places on the list. There were fifty. In one week with a stomach virus, I did 40 something interviews for 40 stories that ranged from 150 words to four hundred words. I did all of this. I am proud but stunned when my co-worker told me what I had done. "Didn't you think to count them," she said. I told her no. I knew it would overwhelmed me if I counted the stories. Plus, I figured maybe those stories would be my swan song at the paper.

I have to admit that September has not been a good month for me. There have days I have wanted to give up and go home with my tail between my legs. I miss my guys. It is great having a job and not just any job--my dream job of working at a daily newspaper. So I continue to take it day by day.

I love award shows. I fell asleep on the Emmy's. I fell asleep. Thank God for recap shows. I saw about an hour of it and thought Neil Patrick Harris rocked the show. I had my first real meal today. I had a grilled cheese, french fries, a limeade and chocolate milkshake from Sonic. It tasted like filet mignon. When you have puked as much as I did last week, you appreciate being able to eat solid food.
