  • 'It's time'

     

    For nearly two decades Mary Kline has been the face of the Williston Chamber of Commerce, but come this Sunday – New Year's Day – that changes as Mary slides into a well-deserved retirement with her husband, Darrell by her side.

    "I'm really ambivalent," she said her last full day of work, Dec. 22. "The closer I get to it, the more I wonder if I'll go crazy. But I am excited as a whole chapter is closing."

  • As good as it gets

    I once kept a journal. I wrote in it every day, even if it was only a sentence that summarized the day.

    Then I had two babies under two years old, and the entries became less frequent.

    When those babies started school, I entered the workforce full-time and between home and work, there wasn't much time for writing – other than what I got paid for.

  • If it's December then I'm already done-in

    It's only Dec. 5 and I'm ready to throw in the towel.

    Despite all my good intentions, time is getting away from me and there's no way to recoup what I've lost and no way to get ahead of what needs to be done.

    It all started back in November – Veterans Day to be exact.
