It's the 4th of July, Y'all!

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.
