Michelle's column: Planning a bittersweet vacation
I looked at the calendar Monday morning, and realized it was, in fact, Aug. 12.
Yep. It was Aug. 12. And I had exactly nine days to finish up all of the prep work I have to do before the Minnesota State Fair opens and the Minnesota Newspaper Museum opens its doors for what could be our last year.
Normally, I'm pretty excited for the beginning of the fair. I've worked out there, in one capacity or another, since 1986. I take vacation for the fair. That's how much I love it.
