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!

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…
