Back in black, yeah I'm back in blaaaack

OK, so I'm a tid bit late, I know.
Big day at the office, that's all I got to say.
And we ate dinner at Subway, we got home and Max wanted to watch "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
No, you didn't read that wrong.
I told ya he's a crazy kid.
Anyway, so I'm hurrying cause my hubbo has to work tomorrow, so I need to spend some HQ with him before he goes. It seems like my life is always rush, rush, rush, rush, let's add one more .... rush.
So ... a BIG STORY broke at work today about a cold case file. Can't tell you any more than that or I would have to kill you.
Needless to say at a paper with the circulation of about 800 people any big story is pretty darn exciting. Typically the size of produce makes the front page, or someone's Christmas light displays. Not even kidding here.
I'm am definitely not used to such as small town paper. My hometown was about 5,000 people, so our paper was fairly big. That's the quaint little publication that I got my journalistic feet wet, by the way.
And of course the paper I quit a year ago was about 50,000 circulation, cause it's a "big city" paper and I live in the "big city" now. LOL!
Big difference, eh?
But I like small-town life and small-town newspapers.
The Iowa town I work in is like Smallville or something. It's really old-fashioned, it's like the villa that time forget and that's actually pretty refreshing.
I hope that all made sense, as I'm pretty spent from tracking down the hard news.

Anyway, here's your freebie, it's call Back In Black, inspired of course by the hit AC/DC tune from the very early '80s. I'm an '80s child, by the way, I graduated in 1990. Which would make me about ....... yeah ... you guessed it, 34. I'm darn old. But I still know how to party! Well, actually I don't. But I'm still hip, darn it!

I love both of the kits!! They are fantastic and I can't believe this is now my third comment on a blog. LOLOL But I just love your stuff.

It sounds like you are living in a town very much like the one I grew up in. We also had a small local paper and the biggest news was when someone's pig got loose and ran down the main street. (No, I am NOT kidding.)

Also, don't feel bad. I just turned 39 on July 27th. My kids are only 2 and 4 (I started a family late) and I feel older than dirt! All the mothers at the school are much younger than me. aaargh!

Anyway, thanks again!!! I love your blog and your freebies.

Big Hugs,
