Looking busy on a Wednesday

It is rainy muggy day here in Kville. I am ready to go home and prepare for the Criminal Minds season premiere tonight.
 I am writing this so I can look busy at work. I should be writing about a work session but I’m just not feeling it. Hurricane Joaquin could possibly affect my area this weekend. This is also the weekend of the long awaited N.C. Poultry Jubilee. Seriously, I am very excited about this because two things I love will be combined—fried chicken and the World’s Largest Frying Pan. Hopefully, they will be able to fry the chicken. The fry must go on.
While looking through Pinterest, I found a Currently writing prompt. I decided to do so I can burn some more time and leave a little early.
--I am thinking about going home early to take a nap and prepare for Criminal Minds.
--I am enjoying the day at my desk instead of running all over the county in the rain.
--I feeling pretty good today. My cold has finally gone away. And my birthday is coming up.
--I am wearing a grey and black boyfriend cardigan with a red tank top, jeans and favorite chunky shoes along with a black knit cap.
--I am needing some alone time. One of my co-workers talks loud in his cubicle.
--I am really wanting to go home.
--I am listening to The Weeknd, Godsmack, Kanye West and Duran Duran.
--I am making a mess of a story I am trying to write because I am not focused.
--I am eating a Little Debbie cake.
--I am drinking a Dr. Pepper.

1. It's time to go home!
2. It has rained for a hour.
3. Grape soda, barbecue wings and curly fries for dinner!


  1. I am really ready to go home too! Those last few hours can drag. so. much. Enjoy your criminal minds and your weekend. I have Scandal episode waiting for me.

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…
