Is it Friday yet?? - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports

Is it Friday yet??

Is it Friday yet??  I wish!  Today was one of those days where things just don't go the way you hoped!  It happens, of course, but it's never much fun:)

I ended up doing two stories today: the first was about a man police suspect of robbing two Evansville businesses and attempting to rob a third, the other about five people in Evansville arrested after police found children living in filth in their home. 

That wasn't what I was setting out to cover, though, at the beginning of the day!  I was trying to do a completely different story, but as the hours passed I figured out it just wasn't happening.  People didn't call back, which, in this case, meant no story for me!  Then, I tried a different idea.  It, too, didn't pan out.  Thus, how I ended up with the neglect story.  In the end, it all worked out, but not exactly the way we'd planned!

Hopefully I can carry over some of those stories ideas to other days so they don't go to waste:)

Just goes to show, it may look like we've got it all together (or maybe it doesn't, haha!) on the news, but sometimes it's a bit of a struggle to get to that point!

Here's to hoping tomorrow goes a little more smoothly! 

Until next time,

Erin
