Yesterday was Katie’s last day on the Today show. I am a beast of routine. I think some of Conner’s first words were “Katie and Matt” because I watch the Today show religiously. They seem to give me a snippet of the world and then I can go on with my day. I did feel a pang of sadness yesterday as she left. I do feel like she’s my gal pal and I enjoy her company on the days that I’m going NUTSO with my kids. I think Merideth will do a fine job, she’s the one person (except for maybe Elizabeth) that I can tolerate from The View. I’m a little concerned about Katie though. I really thought that morning TV was her niche. She’s the helpful mom type that can also bust out an interview if needed. Who knows, maybe this will make me an evening news watcher, but I doubt it.
