Without music, life would be sooooo boring

I am listening to iTunes radio as I write. I think I am going to have to buy an iPod to download all of the music I have on my laptop. Music plays a significant role in my life. Even when I am walking down the hall, I can hear music in my head. My friends don't know this but I have created soundtracks for them. Most of the songs picked for my blog are songs I have listened to throughout the day.

My mom is watching Animal Planet. For now, things are pretty decent. She is getting her groove back because she has announced she is ready to go home. Sadly, her body isn't. Her white blood cells are okay but she is going to need some platelets later today. Physical therapy is going well.

After a long week, I crashed yesterday between helping my mom and trying to rest. I was exhausted. So I read some mags and kept my mom's spirits up. I got my greedy little hands on the September issue of Vanity Fair with Lady Gaga on the cover. The article was great and the pictures were awesome. I think awesome has become my word of the month. Anyway, I devoured the magazine. It was nice to just zone out.

While reading, I came across this section called My Dream. This month featured designer Michael Kors. I decided to write down My Dreams.

My Dreams by Silly Girl
My DREAM holiday is to go to a beach house for a week with close friends and family. Especially  with JJ. He loves the beach.

My DREAM mode of transport is a car with a driver. Sometimes I just want to read or sleep during a long trip.

My DREAM outfit is a cute black Ann Taylor dress with cool pair of shoes and a kick ass handbag.

My DREAM home is in my hometown. It looks like a birthday cake and is three story Victorian style home.

My DREAM is to live to see  my little guy grew up to be a really good young man. Have a successful life and find love.

My DREAM medical cure is for cancer. It has wrecked to much havoc on the world.

My DREAM collection  includes James Dean and Curious George items.

My DREAM dinner party consist of a few close friends with guests such as James Dean, President Obama, Julia Roberts, Dave Matthews, Colin Powell and the music groups--Paramore, Breaking Benjamin and Slipknot.

My DREAM meal is a porterhouse steak with baked potatoes, a salad and key lime pie.

Daily Dose

1. Hospital cafeteria carrot cake--It left me speechless because it was soooo good.

2. My mother is doing much better.

3. Making sure nap time is a priority.


  1. I'm really glad you got some time to rest a bit, even if it's just to read a magazine you really want to read. It's good to hear too that your mum is doing a little better. I like the list of what you dream too, they are really good to keep in mind when you don't feel good and you can remind yourself of them. Have a good saturday night and sunday :-)

    P.S. I haven't forgotten about your card for JJ. I am having some creativity issues right now and I do have the dinosaur cut out and put together, I just have to up it together on a card blank. I'll send it off as soon as I get it put together. Hopefully I can finish it today.

  2. Music is my life lol imagining life w/o music is a depressing thought. i need an ipod too, its on my christmas wish list!

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…
