Chihuahua bites kind of tickle.

It's the first Friday of the year. That's good in so many ways! That means the weekend is coming. This particular Friday, my husband is off work. AND? It's time for Friday Fragments!

Mommy's Idea






*** Ace is proving to be excellent birth control. Muah ha haha! He barks. A lot. At night.
I really think he'll settle down once he gets used to life here. But right now,this feisty little ankle-biter is keeping Shelbie hopping. (snicker)







*** I got my first paid writing job! It won't pay all the bills, but it may buy some groceries. And it's a regular, paid writing job! ~~~Happy Dance~~~




*** I'm a CSN Preferred Blogger, and I'll be doing another review for them soon. I'm not sure what I'll get this time, but we're in need of some new comforters, spreads, and/or duvets. I'm thinking of one of these modern duvet covers. Although I may use it for an electric blanket; our light bill knocked my socks off this month - and not in a good way! The price to keep a cold-blooded mama warm is quite high.




*** I've been on Twitter a lot more lately. If you aren't already following me, well, why not? I'm @dsfunctionalmom. And if I'm not following you, well why not? Let me know!




*** I had the privilege of watching Tim Tebow:Everything in Between on ESPN last night . Seriously, it was such a great show. He inspires me. He's a rare sports figure who actually deserves to be respected and admired. And he looks darned good doing it. Mmm-hmm. It airs again today at 5:30 pm on ESPNU, in case you're interested.

And I chose "Where I'm From" by Jason Michael Carroll as my song of this week, because Tim Tebow sang it on the show. I love that guy.

I like Tim Tebow too. Hopefully your doggie will settle down soon. Glad ours is not a yapper.

yay for the writing job, not so yay for the barking pooch. but it's all a part of life lessons right??

i had no idea you wrote reviews for CSN. how very interesting. do they give you the product or is it more like the secret shopper thing? how on earth did you land that? that sounds very cool!

I can't have a dog for that very reason. I get so stressed out with barking, yipping and panting. It's sort of like running water to me, I can't handle that either.

Congrats on the paid writing job!

There have been so many folks getting the CSN promotions. Not sure how you all are getting the gig, but congrats!

Twitter makes my head hurt...and not in a good way.

Congrats on the writing job. I'd love someone to pay me for this. Then again, they'd probably pay me to STOP. :)

One of my dogs is a crazy barker, but luckily at night she is crated and sleeps. Phew!

Love the song! I now follow you on Twitter. I don't know why I wasn't.

Congrats on your job! That is really an accomplishment!
