Day 27 and more...

Got to meet Scooby!!!
It is Day 27 of 30 days of positive change. It has been a busy time for me. But still managed to do something positive each day.
Today, I decided to do something crazy. I asked a guy out on a date. He declined because he has a girlfriend. I’m cool with it because I asked. Yay!!!

Here is a quick recap of the other days:
Day 6: I tried to make a new friend. I did my best. We’ll see how it works out.
Day 7: I broke out of my shell by inviting myself to work with my co-workers.
Day 8: Start a good habit. I am waking up at the same time each day.
Day 9: Discover a new music artist. I have discovered The Weeknd. Great artist.
Day 10: Do a random act of kindness. I brought burgers for two kids who didn’t have enough money.
Day 11: Answer a question you’ve always wondered about. I wondered if I could actually stop procrastinating so much.
Day 12: Make something I’ve never made before. I tried to make candy. It didn’t work but it was fun trying.
Day 13: Do something I’ve always wanted to do. I wanted to fly a drone. Unfortunately, it rained. But a rain date has been set.
Day 14: Go somewhere you’ve never been. I went to this really cool coffeehouse in Goldsboro.
Day 15: Drive a new route home. I did and got hopelessly lost and had to call a friend to guide me home.
Day 16: Try a new makeup look. I didn’t like this because I don’t like makeup.
Day 17: Try a new lipstick color. I like red lipstick. I tried a lighter one. It was okay.
Day 18: Rearrange a room. I tried to rearrange the bedroom but my bed is too heavy. So I semi-arranged.
Day 19: Create a new outfit from what you already have. I paired this strapless white dress with a jean jacket.
Day 20: Do something spontaneous. I walked to the McDonald’s and decided to eat lunch in the park.
Day 21: Learn a new word and use it in an everyday sentence. The word is bucolic (of, pertaining to or suggesting an idyllic rural life). I had to take pictures in the Albertson community. It was almost bucolic. I couldn’t not imagine living there.
Day 22: Try a new hair style. I tried high ponytail. It didn’t work.
Day 23: Get dressed in the opposite order of how I normally do it. I put my pants on first.
Day 24: Cook a new recipe. Easy Beef Enchiladas. Very zesty.
Day 25: Learn a new skill. I am trying to learn more about cars.
Day 26: Try a new food. I tried avocados. I didn’t like them.

It has been quite adventure and I still have three days left.

Daily Dose
1.        Having lunch in the park.
2.        Appreciating the small thing.
3.        Summer is almost here!


  1. This is great!! Good job on all of your positivity.

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…
