Home sweet home

I came home last night. It has been a bittersweet. On one hand, I came for a funeral and to support my family but I also got to spend sometime with my son. JJ has discovered Power Rangers. So while he was the red and green ones (the good guys), I was the black one (the bad guy). My son told me that I make a great boy for being a girl. Apparently, I know how to play like a boy. We had fun. We also colored, watch movies and read books. I miss him a lot.

Before getting home, I went to Pickle Land to see one of my friends. We ate at Andy's and went to Wally World. It was nice way to spend the afternoon after being on the road.

Today, I ordered a pizza and spent the day unpacking and just vegging. Tomorrow, I return to work. I'm ready to write.

  1. Hi Silly Girl,

    I agree, it's great to have an old friend. They're priceless.

    P.S. I'm sorry to hear about your loss. You have my condolances.

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…
