This very well may end up being the shortest editorial in the history of editorials, but I don’t have much room and to tell you the truth my mind is kind of fried at the moment. With these Tuesday holidays two weeks in a row, it has been a little crazy at the newspaper office. We have pretty much been in constant production mode everyday since December 17, without a day to really slow down, find ideas and write stories. It has literally been put the MHN to bed, produce the Patriot and go right back into production on the next issue of the MHN. To top all of that off we have all had family parties and get-togethers to fill our days off and evening so it has been “go, go, go.” In my home, to top it all off, we are also dealing with a move to a new house. It is right around the corner from my old house, which makes it easier, but we have been living in our current home for eight years and I have come to the realization over the past couple of weeks that my family has some “hoarding” tendencies. There are things in my children’s bedrooms that I have no idea what would possess them to keep, but we are now getting to do the ultimate of clean outs and get to literally start a new beginning this new year as we started sleeping in our new house on Jan. 1.
This craziness at the paper and at home is about to slow back down and we will all be able to sit back and breathe a bit again shortly. I am just happy that we made it and these back to back Tuesday holidays are in our rearview mirror. Happy New Year to all of our readers!
