When the bad mood rolls in......

It is official. I am in a shitty mood. A lot of factors have contributed to it. But my wedding anniversary is tomorrow. This is a big part of it. I deliberately scrambled up the work weekends so I would on duty working.

Technically, we are married. I haven't felt married in months. For weeks, I have been planning for when JJ comes up here at the end of April. I found out last night that hubby might try to torpedo this. And a foul mood went completely shitty. For the first time in weeks, I skipped dinner and went straight to bed. I stared at the ceiling for hours before I finally fell asleep at 3:30 a.m. Today, I am grumpy and exhausted but I did eat breakfast. And I know I shouldn't have restricted. I was just sad mommy.

I couldn't talk to the hubby about the situation because JJ was within earshot. So this is where things stand. I am interested to see what the hubby's problem is. Right now, we both have very sick mothers. His mother is dying of lung cancer. I am trying to be nice but I'm not giving up that weekend. I have earned it. So I will keep you posted on the situation.

Daily Dose

1. I see my mom and son on Sunday.

2. I am tired but wearing a cute sweater.


  1. Sorry about the shitty mood (and circumstances). I'm in a shitty mood myself... Post to come... Hang in there!

  2. hey just remember
    we are here for you darling!!

  3. You are tired but earing a cute sweater!! You totally cracked me up with that!

    I remember husband and I were apart by 3500 miles for most of the summer and part of the fall of 1994 when I was staying with his elderly mom in Canada, and I about went nuts that summer! Long distance marriage sucks.

    Jannie, who came her from wonderful sweet Barbara Swafford's.

  4. shoot - a typo on my first visit here, arrg.

    wearing a cute sweater, of course, not earing one. God.

    and came "here" not her.

    oh boy, this is gonna be a long night on computer for me. :)

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…
