Before raising children I was a news junkie who ate out more than she cooked.
Local and fresh meant the corner diner.
Muckraking meant bringing up some really good dirt that needed to see the light.
Mudslinging was something politicians did and I reported.
Gee, I'm happy to be a farm girl raising vegetables, flowers and children.
That other life was fun and I'm glad I had it.
It makes me appreciate this one so much more.
