This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Friday Fragments: There's Only A Little Poo Here

It's Friday! Time for another issue of Friday Fragments!


Have you entered my Pay-It Forward giveaway yet? Today's your last chance!


For a good laugh, check out today's Friday Funny!


Look what I got in the mail from Emalee!

There was also a BEAUTIFUL card which I forgot to take a photo of.

Thank you, Emalee!


I decided to use a doggie-doo clean up service for the mess left behind during winter. They came and went within half an hour. The yard was poop free for all of 2 minutes! (but totally worth paying for the clean up service) Be glad I spared you the photos I took!


Speaking of certain pups.... I continue daily to work on her training. This week, on a few occasions, I have left the gate open, told her to stay, and I walked out of the yard all the way to the edge of the driveway. Every time, she stayed!

Of course, there were no distractions at this time, but it is a good start.

She is also learning some sign language! I'm really proud of my little pup!! She's come a long way since we adopted her in July 2007.


I made a vlog. Dare I post it? It's just me whining.


Who wants to be my Follower of the Month for May?


I'm now watching Season 2 of 24. Oh, Jack Bauer!

I'll be watching the next DVD this weekend! Can't wait for the others to arrive from


I got this Splash Award from The Furious Mom

Apparently, it means my blog is Alluring, Amusing, Bewitching, Impressive, and Inspiring!

I'm supposed to pass it along to 9 fellow bloggers. Let me get back to you on that when I'm not falling asleep sitting up!

Thanks Steph!


Come back tonight for VGNO and see what Emma's up to this week!

Don't know what VGNO is? It stands for Virtual Girls Night Out. It's hosted by Ann of Ann Again... and Again! Basically, it's an online blogging party where you hop from one blog to another visiting and drinking virtual drinks and getting your groove on while wearing your pajamas! Its a fun way to meet new bloggers.

Just catching up with everything I've missed ... been a busy week! : )

Love that Maxine cartoon -- that escape key doesn't work for me either!

And can you imagine if you job was cleaning up dog poop all day???? I can't .. yet another career I won't pursue.

And I'm going to skip your Pay It Forward thing because I did one and NO ONE WANTED TO PAY IT FORWARD! Isn't that funny and/or sad?

Happy Friday, Ter!!

I love Maxine... and you definitely should post the vlog! They're always hilarious!

Cool, I didn't even know there were dog poo cleaning services. I have my yard under control finally now I just do a quickie clean up every morning and no more poo on the shoes!

I love 24 so much, even when it's not very good.

I've been thinking about buying the first 2 seasons and watching them again.

Emalee said...

I am so happy you LOVED your giveaway surprise!

Me! Me! Me!

That Emalee is so thoughtful. She sent me something so caring once and it blew me away!

And hey-I've been asking for your address forever to send you something so how come I don't get it and Emalee does? You think I'm some stalker or something?! Lol!

Happy Friday! Tell Emma to get her dancing shoes on (she has some right?)... we are going to a concert tonight!

Vickie said...

Show the vlog, show the vlog!!

Cleaning up doggie do is not fun. We have more now that we have the wood chipper/pee machine.

Just Add Walter said...

VGNO sounds fun!! I might try that sometime!
