Sorry For The Interruption

I’m sorry for the big black protest post you saw this morning.  Well let me rephrase that, I’m sorry for not giving you notice that would be up this morning.

I have to admit, I am way behind in the times.  I had no idea the Senate, who apparently have NO OTHER ISSUES to deal with, were working on a vote to limit our internet freedoms.   While the idea of the bill does have some merit, the bill itself is far too broad.

I found out about the internet protest last night, after I had published my post.  And after reading the posts from Rescued Insanity and  Something Wagging This Way Comes, I followed Word Press’ instructions and joined the protest.

I hope if you visited this site and saw the protest, you took a moment to view the video.  That’s all I ask, what you choose to do with that information is up to you.

I did have a little something dog related to share with you today.  It falls into the “My Dog Makes Me Laugh” category.

The other night I was preparing dinner and Sampson and Delilah (those model dog citizens) were sitting in their respective areas on the edges of the kitchen.  Hubby disappeared and I wasn’t sure in which direction he had gone.  Dinner was ready and I looked at Sampson (who was looking at me) and I said, “Where’s Daddy?”  Sampson turned his head in the direction of the bedroom and a few seconds later, Hubby came out.  Which made me burst out laughing because it was so perfectly timed.

And like Sampson knew EXACTLY what I was saying. 🙂

I’m sure your pet makes you smile on a daily basis, but does he/she do something that makes you laugh?

Book Update : My book has 2,397 words

2012 Goals

Well it’s just about the middle of January and I figured I should make my goals for myself and this blog public, so you all can help hold me accountable.

My goals in no particular order:

The Blog.


The last time I published a post WordPress informed me I have 54 WordPress subscribers and 164 Twitter followers.  My goal for 2012 is to double my WordPress subscribers.


My plan is to continue to post every, single day.  If I make it, that will be two full years of daily blogging.

Product Review.

I would like to be able to do a product review on this blog.  Preferably a product I like, so I can write a glowing review.



My Twitter goal is to learn to tweet.  Seriously.

Twitter Followers.

My other Twitter goal is to get Bob Harper to follow me.   I know, it will be tough but I think I’m up for the challenge.


Paid Writing.

I’m not going to say I want to get a full-time writing job, but I would like to get paid to write something.  Anything.  I don’t care if someone pays me to write a freakin’ ad on Craig’s list.  I just want to be able to say I made money by writing.

My Book.

I’m writing a book.  There I said it!  Now you know.  Taking a page from Donna and the Dogs, I will be posting a line at the end of each blog letting you know how many words I currently have.

My goal is to write a little bit for my book each day.  In three days I have slightly over 1.000 words, I need to pick up the pace on that, because I hope to have the book complete (in rough form of course) by the time this blog is two years old.

Sampson and Delilah.

My goal for Sampson and Delilah never changes.  It is to give them the best life I can and enjoy the time I have with them.

So there you have it, and now that you have read my goals, knowing I have shared them is what will hold me accountable and help me accomplish them.

How about you, have you set any goals for yourself, your dogs, your blog or anything else?
