Sacredness of Sunday

This has been the perfect day. I got up just in time to get the last Sunday newspaper out of the box. And get in my morning walk before it got to hot. And by hot, I mean 101 degrees with a 109 heat index. I ventured out when it was about 87. I haven't been outside since. So what did I do today?  Well, I:

This is what it looked like on the bag. Looked like this except creamier and more spinach on my plate!
--Cooked a bag of Bertolli's Chicken Florentine and Farfalle. It had lots of spinach. I don't really like spinach but I am trying to eat more veggies and to see if I really hate certain foods or if it is ED that hates the food. I am on the fence about spinach. I like it as long as there is a creamy sauce or cheese. I used my handy dandy electric to make it for lunch and dinner. It was pretty good.

--Watched a marathon of Ice Truckers. This show fascinates me. They must make some serious bank to put their lives on the line. They are driving on ice. Amazing.

--Took two of the best naps of my 36 years of life. I woke of refreshed and happy.

--Read a stack of magazines such as Jet, TV Guide, surfer (I've always wanted to learn how to surf even though I can't swim), People (the issue with Zac Efron on the cover), Saveur, Esquire and Entertainment Weekly.

--Tried to start packing for the trip home. At least my undies are packed.

--Had a mini fashion show for myself complete with its own music mix and mood lighting.  I modeled for the Maison de Fille Stupide (House of Silly Girl). The fashion mix included Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)-Lostprophets, Losing You (UK Alternative version)--Dead by April, All the Same--Sick Puppies, Magic--Robin Thicke,  Shake Your Body Down--The Jacksons, and N.E. Heart Break--New Edition.

--Am hoping I can stay awake until True Blood.

In conclusion, I had quiet, heat free Sunday. I know my next few days will not be quiet or heat free.

Daily Dose

1. Spinach isn't that bad.

2. Quiet early morning walks.

3. Music is what the soul needs at time.

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…
