Confessions of a Netflix junkie and other news

I finally did it. 

I joined Netflix. I am now officially a Netflick junkie. Since moving to RR, I have relied on the policy of if I am meant to see a certain movie, I will.

We have a  movie theater that show three movies and the public library has a pretty good dvd collection. Between this and the bargain bin at Big Lots, I have did okay.

Last fall, I read in the magazine about a documentary called The Queen of Versailles. It was about a rich guy building a 90,000 square foot home for his wife and eight kids. The story intrigued me. 

I realized the only way to see this movie was either Red Box or Netflix. I signed up for the one DVD plan. I watched the movie and now I am hooked. I have worked on my queue like crazy. My next movie, This Means War, should be waiting in my mailbox right now. 

I don't have cable and this is a way I can stay current. 

In other news, I was named the Employee of the Month. YAY!!!! And I also had the Photo of the Month and the Video of the Month. It's a good  month to be Jackie. I just wanted to share it. 

As Employee of the Month, I received a Wheaties Box to display on my desk. 



My son will be receiving the box when I go home for Mother's Day.

DAILY DOSE
1. Taking a break from being a reporter and being me.
2. Eating Mexican food outside while reading one of my favorite newspapers.
3. Being able to enjoy Mexican food without ED's nagging voice.

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...
