I love horror movies

I am not a big Halloween person but I do love horror movies. I spend Saturday watching movies with a four break to go cover an event for the newspaper.

I started Saturday morning with "I Still No What You Did Last Summer" and "Ghost Ship." Then I saw one of my favorites "Halloween H20" was coming on that night. I was so excited. I have some really good memories of seeing that movie in the theater. After working, I stopped at Sonic and bought four corn dogs from Sonic. One poor dog didn't make it home.

After watching, my favorite one. I watched Halloween Resurrection and My Psycho Sweet Sixteen. If I had had a dvd player, I would have rented the Halloween 2, The Night of the Living Dead and Final Destination.

But overall, I was pleased with my selections and ate a ton of candy corn while watching them.

It is the beginning of the month. This means county commissioner and board of education meeting. Nothing gets my heart racing faster than a government meeting. And in 22 days, my little guy will turn the big 4. He is so excited and so am I. We are planning a little family party for him and I have already taken the weekend off for it. However, this means I will be working Thanksgiving weekend. So I will have to make other arrangements for food that day. And for the first time in my journalism career, I will be covering Black Friday. The things I will do so I can see my baby blow out his candles.

Daily Dose

  3. I don't think I am ready for watching "Paranormal Activity." I stay in a motel. Enough said.

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…
