I still pinch myself everyday. (not literally, I bruise really easy) It’s been a whole year already of doing the morning show! Where did the time go? It seems like only yesterday that I got the call that I had to come in the NEXT morning. I remember picking up my messages. “Uhhhhh, Kerri, do you think you can start, like, tomorrow?” ‘”Sure!” I said. Then quickly remembered…that I had a 9 month old! Oh my goodness. “What time do I have to get up? When? That early eh…” It was perfect! At the time I had been getting up at all hours of the night anyway! Why not make it a career! Starting any new job is nerve racking, right? Filling in for somebody who people loved and adored was MORE nerve racking!
I had big shoes to fill! Big, giant, oversized shoes. But, all I could do was give it all I had. This was my dream job…right here, right NOW! I remember when the mic went on for the first time. I thought, Oh MAN….WHAT AM I DOING!!!??? What have I got myself into!!?? I was terrified. TERRIFIED! Thank goodness he was patient and had a sense of humour….those early days would have been too scary. And as the days rolled on and the months have passed, I am finally starting to figure things out on this thing we like to call ‘the Morning Show’. I want to tell you, that I am so grateful to you for being so patient, and for giving me a chance. Thank you for allowing me into your life. I wish I could get to know each and every one of you! I am a little quirky, a little goofy and you know now that I am terrible at anything sports related. But, thanks for liking me anyway! And if you don’t, I usually hear about it! lol! So thank you, thank you , thank you for letting me become your friend! ps. Francois and Alexandra say hi and they’re right here and they’re bugging me to get off the computer because she needs a bath and he can’t find the cheese we bought the other day to make a sandwich for tomorrow’s lunch. (and we have a strict budget, so there will be NO buying of lunches…so I REALLY have to go find that cheese) punch in CHEESE for 1000 points.
Much Love and here’s to the future!!! xo kerr
