Okay, so working on Independence Day isn’t ideal. My alarm went off at 2:00 am today (no joke- that’s when us morning news anchors have to rise and shine), while my husband and pups were snoring away, blissfully unaware of any alarm clock within a 10 mile radius. You know what, though? I didn’t mind.
Today we lit sparklers and popped poppers on the morning show. My meteorologist, Hank laughed and called me “Tiny Tim” when I said on air that I’m thankful to be working, thankful to have a career I love and thankful to live in the best darn country in the world.
But it’s true. I am.
I’ll be off of work at noon to go BBQ with friends and gorge on the red, white and blue chocolate Chex mix I whipped up for the occasion. And then I’ll be back in bed by 6:00 pm… ready for that 2:00 am wake up call tomorrow.
