I should leave this to the legal-eagles here. But I'd say yes. My brother was the exec-whatever when my dad died in 2000, and he was even told by the probate attorney to keep track of his time, as well as expenses. He got an extra couple thou for his troubles(my brother, not the attorney )

Executrixes are generally entitled to compensation. If you were in Virginia, I would suggest that you call the Commissioner of Accounts for your county. I don't know what that office is called in N.C., but I am sure you have something similar. If you can't figure out who to call, then call the probate court and ask who is in charge of supervising probate estates. Whatever expenses the estate has, including your fee, will probably need to be approved by the Commissioner of Accounts or someone like that.

Good advise, especially if there are multiple heirs. It's a good idea to probate the will if you think there will be ANY problems. I am the executor of my Dad's estate and I plan to charge the estate for mileage and three percent of the total value for my work, and believe me, there IS work!! Keep GOOD records and your lawyer's phone number handy.
