First Paid Writing Job

WooHoo! I got my first paid writing job. OK - it's 6 small articles and I won't make much money, but I'm so excited. I've loved writing and have always thought I did a pretty good job at it, but never pursued it as a money-making opportunity. I've always been too busy with little kids, building a career and going back to school to pursue anything personal on my own.

Even though I'm staying home through no design of my own, I feel this opportunity is turning out to really shape a new personal direction in my life. Perhaps it won't be a long-term money making venture, but the experience is certainly one I'm so glad didn't pass me by and I feel richer for it.

That's all for today!

Chiweenie - my dog

Our dog's name is Opie. We got him as a puppy thinking he was a Chiweenie (half Chihuahua, half Dachsund)! However, we soon found out we were deceived. We now think he's a dachsund/jack russel mix and he looks like he's a little disconnected. Almost like two separate puzzles being put together in the same spot.

He barks at anything and has tons of attitude. One day - he started barking and freaking out at something on our back porch. We kept looking, but not seeing anything. When we got down to his level, we realized he was all excited about his own reflection! Sometimes we don't think he's too bright, but we enjoy him all the same.

Opie sleeps under the blankets at night. He just burrows in with our son. I don't know how he manages to sleep under the blankets but that's his preferred spot! Here is his picture.... isn't he cute?

New to blogging

As a working mother who was laid off since December, my life has taken some major turns. Now that I have time, I'm bored! There's only so much TV that can be watched and with money being tight, there's not much else to do.

So - I decided to create a blog. As part of creating the blog, I've decided to start writing and looking for work-from-home jobs that will help bring in extra money while I look for full time employment. I've decided to keep this as real as possible and write about my family, my kids and my work.
