It's Tuesday which means I get to be LOST

Earlier this evening, it snowed. Again. I love snow as much as the next person but this has got to stop. My co-workers are beginning to think maybe I brought the snow with me.

After working some heinous hours yesterday, I get to unwind. This is great because I am tired. These antibiotics are kicking my butt. But they are working and I don't have MRSA.

Today, my partner in crime and I went to this barbecue restaurant for lunch. I hate barbecue. To me, it looks like someone regurgitated on your plate. But the fried chicken, sweet peas, mash potatoes and gravy were great. And so were the hush puppies. A very good lunch. A lunch I didn't stress about. A lunch full of good conversation. There is hope for me after all. My mother's birthday is in one week. I am not sure what to get her. She is in good spirits. I think it is because the radiation is almost over and so she will have surgery. She explained why they did the radiation. The spot where the bones broke had cancer in them. I knew it and I am glad to hear her say it out loud. On Thursday, she gets her other test results back. And for once, I'm not worried or stress. What will happen will happen.

Back to her birthday. I think we will take a mini road trip. Maybe hit some thrift stores and go to the fish camp she likes. We'll figure out something.

Daily Dose

1. hush puppies

2. chocolate donuts



  1. Oh, a mini road trip could be fun! What a great idea! You seem very at peace about your mom's situation, and that's good to hear. You are doing all you can for her!
    I'm so glad you don't have MRSA! And I'm also glad you get to unwind tonight! Good for you for doing the bbq lunch, even if it's not your favorite. I'm not a fan of bbq either. It's too sloppy for me! It's great that you could enjoy the conversation and relax :)
    Have a good night!

  2. now that your mother needs support,it's very comforting to have you by her side! Go and have fun, cause you both deserve this :)
    good morning, silly girl

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…
