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

1. Horror movies rock!

2. I am buying up all the candy corn I can find before it goes away.

3. Planning a birthday party.


  1. I also LOVE scary movies! I can't get enough of 'em. My husband hates them. I just love being scared. It's a thrill.

    Sounds like you have some excited things ahead with work and your son's bday :)

  2. Well I did just watch that film 'Paranormal Activity' the other night SB. Must say, I did have a bit of trouble falling asleep afterwards to!!

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

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…
