Embracing laziness

Today, I am living "The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars.

Today I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
Cus today I swear I’m not doing anything

My biggest accomplishment right now is showering and going out to buy the Sunday newspaper. And soon, I am going to kick back on the couch and read it while sipping on an eight-ounce can of orange soda and eating barbecue chips. It is nice to not have to interview anyone and write a story about it. Today, I get to be Jackie and it is soooooo nice.

I’ll be lying on the couch just chillin in my snuggie
Click to MTV so they can teach me how to dougie
Cus in my castle I’m the freakin man
Oh Oh

Yes I said it
I said it
I said it cus I can

I am not in a snuggie because it is too hot but I am wearing a tank top and shorts. Just enjoying a lazy Sunday.

Today I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
Cus today I swear I’m not doing anything
No I ain’t gonna comb my hair
Cus I ain’t going anywhere
No No No No No No No No No

I did comb my hair because I didn't want to scare the guy at the convenience store. I love this song because sometimes  you need a day just to be lazy. Tomorrow, I will come back to reality. But today, I am putting on my sunglasses, heading outside with my lawn chair and reading my book. Have a nice Sunday!!!

1. I love being lazy.

2. Clearing out the clutter in my apartment and brain.

3. Being happy to be alive.


  1. Hope you enjoyed your lazy day! Those are awesome.

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…
