Hard decision to make

A lot of newspapers are interested in me. So right now, I am going to the interviews with a open mind. This is all so new to me. I didn't think I would ever find a job. My hubby is being very supportive. He told me to go with the newspaper that best suits me. For months, he and my other friends have been telling me that when the time comes, the job will come. Boy were they right. I am starting the process of going to my things and packing.

My mother is happy for me but she doesn't want me to leave. So it is going to be hard to make a decision.

My son, the flirt, had the ladies at his eye doctor's office wrapped around his fingers. He received dinosaur stickers, Spiderman stickers and a lollipop. His eyes are fine. And we celebrated by going to a cool library with a castle inside. To quote JJ--it was a good day, mommy. I will miss the day to day with my son. But I need a job to help provide for him. So we'll see how things go.

Next week, I will have a job interview in Cashiers, NC and a phone interview with a newspaper in Hickory, NC. And on August 6 an interview in Reidsville. I'll take a deep breath and jump in.

Daily Dose

1. Thankful for all the job opportunities coming my way.

2. Supportive friends and family

3. Peanut butter panic ice cream--it calms the soul


  1. Wow, sounds like you have many choices now! Isn't it strange how there can be nothing on the horizon, then a bunch of things? I'm thinking positive thoughts for you!

  2. YAY for you! Nothing beats having choices! Trust that you will be led to the just the right thing! Best of luck! Keep us posted!

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…

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…

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…
