We're in it now… Swim season.
I recently came upon this quote from President John F. Kennedy, "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
Here we are again… our graduation issue.
Happy Mother's Day.
If you are the parent of a school aged child, chances are you are … back to it.
I cannot say for certain, but I have a small hunch that I have just about worn out the 'Welcome' on the welcome mat outside of the Editor's door. At the very least, she may have my messages blocked from text reception (if there is such a feature).
I love to read.
I ran a Half Marathon.
Typically speaking words for my columns just come to me. Majority of the time I do little thinking, I just type.
Describing myself as a 'sports fan' would be a stretch. It is much more accurate to say I am a fan of athletes.
I'm an optimist.
This month marks one decade since I first strolled through the front door of the Oakdale Leader in hopes of acquiring a job. It's a story I have recounted and told numerous times, so I will spare you all the retelling of history.
We got a cat.
It really takes just a minute for a life to change.
I love being a grown-up.
What would you do if everything you knew and believed to be true were suddenly challenged?
I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I blinked for a moment sometime in October and somehow found myself in the middle of November. Perhaps it was the late change of seasons, the delayed temperature drop or those two kids I spend much time chasing … I'm really not sure.
Last week, I promised myself I would not write another sports related column. I am the 'mommy' after all and we do have a very well-spoken Sports Reporter on staff.
I've been waiting two weeks to write this piece. If being completely truthful, I almost wrote it Oct. 10.
Oakdale Elementary Schools are once again at the ready for their annual Jog-a-Thon events this Friday, October 10. It is 'the' quintessential fundraiser for the Parent Teacher Clubs of each elementary school. I borrowed the theme from this year's event to title this column. I like it. Together Everyone Achieves More or TEAM is the slogan which will appear on the ever popular jog shirts this year.
We're in the magazine business.
According to my desk calendar we are officially two days in to the Autumnal Calendar. In other words … it's Fall.
