Best. Week. In A Long time

I am in an amazing mood. This has been a really good week. Why? I am a finalists for two jobs. I have a phone interview Friday for a position 30 minutes away from JJ at a weekly newspaper and 45 minutes for another position. I am thisclose to being near my baby.

Today, I got to film youth at a camp during a choreographed dance to "Party Rock." It was awesome. It was one of those moments where I love my job.

Also, I put a rude person in their place. I was at an event taking photos. 
Man--I haven't seen you in forever.
Me--You haven't been in the right places.
Man--Something has changed about you. Have you gotten taller or have you gain weight?
Me--I have gained some weight. But this is not something you point out to a person. What if I told you that something has changed. Oh, I know you became a douche bag. 

And then I walked off. I know it wasn't a nice thing to say but why would a person so that. I have to deal with ED's voice on and off throughout the day. I don't need that crap. I am healthy. I am strong. And damn it, I look good.

2. Refusing to let anyone treat me bad!

3. Thisclose to being near JJ!


  1. who in their right mind thinks they can jut say, did you gain weight? To a person they don't even know that well. He totally deserved that comment. Good luck with the jobs!

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…
