A busy Silly Girl

It has been awhile since I posted. I have been busy writing, being a Mom and interviewing for two editor's positions.

The interview process was four hours long and involved five people. I arrived twenty minutes early to be interviewed by the regional editor JB. He asked some tough questions but I was prepared. I have given a lot of thought about becoming an editor of a newspaper. It will not be easy but I feel I am up for the challenge. Ed position #1 is at twice a week paper with a staff of two writers and copy editor. Ed position #2 is at a weekly where I would be the sole writer and editor along with some freelance writers. There would be no layout and design. This is taken care of at the daily paper. I would love to have position #2 because I am not good at giving orders. Both jobs are multimedia based with posting to the website and using a video camera. Overall, it I got a position at either paper--it would be an excellent learning experience. Both are relatively close to home. Ed position #1 is 45 minutes away. Ed position #2 is an hour and half away. Hopefully, I will know something soon.

I was also interviewed by the current editor of position #1. Excellent benefits package. I'll keep you posted with the results.

I have been swamped with assignments and stuff. Today, interviewed a town clerk and tonight is an organizational meeting for bring Habitat for Humanity to the county. Tomorrow, I take pictures at a graduation and later that evening attend the high school graduation of my cousins. I am staying busy which keeps me from dwelling on things and stressing out.

Still haven't heard from the reporter's position I interviewed for last month. I have heard that the newspaper let another reporter go so the paper is now has two positions opened. Very interesting!!!

Daily Dose:

1. A cheeseburger and fries washed down with a chocolate shake.

2. Receiving the lastest magazine in the mail.


  1. Sounds like you have some great job leads! Glad to hear the interviews went well!!

  2. Sounds like you know a thing or two about being busy as well, haha! But this is a good busy, busy with productive, positive things you can be proud of! Hope you get good news about the jobs very soon.

  3. Sounds like an intense interviewing process!! Hope the job leads all resolve themselves in a way that works out for you. :)

Stopping ED from gaining

One of the hardest things I had to ever do was to explain my ED to my 11-year-old son. His father had talked to him about it, which I have an issue with  because it is my story and not his. But I have tried to move beyond that.

Anyway, a few weeks I talked to him about it and explained it as best I could. I told him how he is my inspiration to stay in recovery. I know he needs his mom to be healthy to help handle growing up.
One thing I told him was that my relationship with food is not like his relationship. And there will always be a struggle for me. I take it one meal at a time.
I kept all of this in mind when I went to the doctor yesterday to ask for help. In the past three months, my appetite has disappeared. I eat because I don’t want to pass out or to be hospitalized. It hasn’t been easy. I could have let ED win when I realized what was happening. I have only lost 11 pounds. To some this is not much weight but to me it is.
The old me would have been happy about it. The recovering…

Spending time with my son

Memorial Day is always special for me as a reporter and a person. It is a chance to recognize who gave their life so I and others can have the freedom we have. 
Normally, I work and get to take Memorial Day holiday on another day. This year, I got a double bonus. 

I got to spend the long weekend with my son. Things some how worked that my son’s aunt met me halfway and JJ was able to spend three days in Pickle Land with me. He had a chance to see me working and spend quality time together.

JJ is now 11. He is squarely in the pre-teen world. His voice is changing along with other things. My baby is growing up and it scares me. He got to see my new teeth and loved them. He said it was nice to see me so happy. 
We had a chance to talk and just spend some time together. And in two weeks, he returns for a two week involving my week long vacation and a bunch of day camps. It has been a good few days.
The other part is my Memorial Day weekend is this weekend. I'm going to the Lake to hang with…

Adventures at Librari-Con with Samurai Batman

Recently, JJ and I made our second journey to the 11th annual Librari-Con at the Cumberland County Public Library in Fayetteville.  This is an annual anime/graphic novel/sci-fi mini convention that featured anime viewing, panels forums, Artist Alley, Cosplay Runway and more.
What made this event super awesome was the fact that the library was opened at the same time of the event.
For a year, JJ had talked about having a costume after not being able to wear one last year. He was a Samurai Batman.
Apparently, JJ had a growth spurt in the last few weeks so there was struggle getting him into his costume, but a little pulling, binder clips and prayer got the costume on him.

I decided to go as my favorite thing – a mother/photographer/bodyguard/book nerd wearing a Wonder Woman shirt.
JJ decided to add his own special touch to it with a trident and a Flash mask for me. I’m not sure what I was supposed to have been but I played along until lunchtime.
For the first hour, he played free video game…
