Work was hard this week. Not enough hours to do all the things I wanted to do. Friday came, and three stories I had to do weren’t done, so I’ll be working today (Sunday) to finish up.
I’ll be working on the story about Izatys’ bankruptcy. There’s a preliminary story on our website, but I’ll be adding to it with information from the public records on the bankruptcy filing.
I also have to get something done on the Mille Lacs County budget. I went to the truth-in-taxation meeting last month but still haven’t written anything about the 08 budget.
Then I have a column to write for tomorrow, too. It’ll either be something on ethanol or the mutual aid agreement or addiction.
In the meantime I’ll go skiing, grocery shopping, and play catch with Leif.
When we were in New Zealand, and I was working part-time teaching on-line, I took a daily walk to the shop for the newspaper. The shopkeeper would always greet me with “Busy day?”
I never knew what to say, because it wasn’t a busy day, but it seemed embarrassing to admit it.
Now I know what I would say.
