Today was stressful. Well, technically it still is. I’m going on Hour 13 in the newsroom, waiting for final stories to be turned in for editing. Today I also led the production of one of our weekly publications, and that was stressful. Some days it is, some days it’s not. Today? Totally stressful.

Tomorrow, in true Friday form, will be stressful. We’ll be finalizing plans for weekend coverage and editing Sunday stories.

Saturday will probably be stressful too. I’ll be finishing editing on last-minute and live coverage stories.

BUT. Saturday, I will be on a beach. And Saturday morning I’ll be driving to the beach with a great friend and even though I’ll probably be editing stories on the way on my Blackberry, I’ll be with her in her yellow ‘Bug, we’ll have the windows rolled down, and music blaring.

And then we will be there with our towels and sunscreen and sundresses and beer and wine.

Don't forget: I like stress.
