In case you missed it…Friday I had the pleasure of sitting in for the lovely Natasha to co-anchor Today in Iowa and the Noon News with Jeff. It was a super early wake-up call to be up around 2:30 a.m. and try to seem energetic! But I managed! And actually, it was a lot of fun.
But boy–was I ever wiped out after that! Just that swapping of the body’s time clock for a day threw me off kilter, and I ended up taking a heavy duty nap Friday afternoon! I was really hoping to take Drake to the pool Friday, but the weather turned off so cool that didn’t work out. And with as tired as I was, I don’t know if I would’ve had the energy for that anyway!
But Saturday we did manage to have a nice family day, taking in a little bit of Sturgis Falls and watching a movie at home afterward. But when we got back to the house it dawned on me, “Oh–this really is Saturday & now my weekend’s over!”
It just made me realize what a great treat my “regular” weekends are. Having two full days to catch up with the world and be with my family is a real delight. I loved filling in on the anchor desk, and would be thrilled to do it again anytime I’m asked…I’ll just now be more cognizant of valuing any time I do have away from the office. After all–summer’s slipping by so fast & before you know it, Floyd will be back to teaching school and Drake will be back in daycare full time. It all zings by SO FAST! Luckily–we still have two mini-getaways and a few solid weeks left of summer before that all sinks in. I’ve just got to take a deep breath and enjoy it all because it does fly by, indeed!
