Savior of turtles

Since I have moved back. I have noticed that there are lot of turtles that need rescuing in the road. I guess I am the patron saint of them. So I try to save them. I can't save them all. But I do have rules. If it is safe to pull over, I do it. If there is an 18 wheeler behind me, I say a little prayer for the turtle. If it is storming or unsafe conditions, I say a little prayer.

I went to the county council meeting this morning. It was the shortest meeting that I have ever covered. It was less than 30 minutes. It took me longer to get up, get myself and JJ ready and drive to the meeting site. So since I have somewhat of a free day, I am job searching and researching some stuff.

I feel I am in a semi-good spot right now. Things aren't too bad but not too good either.

Daily Dose

1. A really good chicken salad sandwich

2. The color green--It soothes and relaxes me.

3. My hubby for sneaking a bag of M&M in my bag with a good luck note on it.


  1. On behalf of all nature lovers out there, thanks for the turtle rescues! I'm sure you will be repaid in other ways.

  2. There was a turtle at the side of the road by my house and I tried to put it in an aquarium. It didn't seem to like it, so I put it back down in my back yard, and I swear it ran away. I never thought a turtle could do that, but that lil' turtle was FAST!

  3. Those little boogers can not only move fast when they want to but also try to bite. I chalk up to them just being scared.

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…

My new smile

I have great news. Last Monday (April 10), I got my new teeth. 

They have definitely been a game changer. It is weird being able to smile at people. There have been some adjustments with talking and eating. I am so thankfully and blessed that I was able to afford to this. 

1. I got my new teeth!!!!
2. So thankful to my dentist Dr. Wynne and Faison Dental.
3. I can smile after not smiling for almost 20 years!

My home library is complete!!!!!

I write a book column for Duplin Times in Kenansville, N.C. called the Book Nerd. This is my May column, which is about me finally completing my home library.

“When all else fails give up and go to the library.”
-Stephen King

I have always loved this quote, because I have done as he advises hundreds of times.
After having a very bad day, I would head to my nearest library for some calming support.
But now, all I have to do is go home, and go into my own personal library.

Ever since I was a young girl, I have dreamed of having my own library. I learned to read at an early age and always had a book with me. Growing up, I always had a small shelf with books on it in my room. In college, I started to collect books. As I got older and moved to various places, there were always bookshelves.
When I moved into my current home on May 21, 2016, there were three-bedrooms with a pantry and two living rooms. Yes, two living rooms.
I decided before moving that the original living room with its mantle wo…
