In Focus



Welcome to the chaos known as Christmas.

It is a wonderful time of year when people come together, celebrate, and just be merry.

That also means there is a lot to do.

There is decorating, shopping, and checking out all the events that happen once a year. It’s fun, but also exhausting.

Over the weekend there was two light parades, that I greatly enjoyed, and two Santa visits—which kicked off the week filled with school concerts, sports and other festivities. It’s busy, and it will remain busy through the Christmas holiday.

In January, we all take a collective breath, signifying we survived yet another busy holiday season.

Along with all the hustle and bustle, it seems this time of year there is usually a need for expensive repairs for something (at least for me there is). I recently lost the blower motor in my car, a sensor and needed a new set of tires. You can about imagine what that cost.

My work computer may also be on its last leg. I fought with it all weekend trying to fix photos from the weekend events. I desperately want to go Office Space on it.

And they say everything happens in threes, so I am just waiting for the other foot to drop on what that may be.

In the mean time, it’s all Christmas all the time. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate it, it’s just a lot of running around.

I am thankful we have another photographer helping to cover sports and events. It’s kind of funny, we both went to high school together, the same college for photography, both worked for the paper in high school, and we even share a birthday. I couldn’t be happier she is a part of the team and willing to jump in and help out. Thank you Missy!
