Okay, first of all, the name is pronounced Kyu-na, not Kuna like rhymes with Tuna. I know, because I mocked the name for years before I moved here. LOL!
Every year, we celebrate Kuna days. I'm not sure exactly what we are celebrating ... Read more
Have you ever noticed how quickly weather can stop work?
And I don't mean outside work? I mean work in a cubicle filled office. We had some really cool weather today. I live in Idaho and the area is a high desert. That means that it does not rain during the summer much and temps are 90 - 100, on a... Read more

I gotta get out of this funk!
For the last couple of weeks, I have dreaded going to work. I don't enjoy the ride there. I don't enjoy the work environment. I don't enjoy the ride home. I do like sitting on the patio at lunch and reading my book.
I'm procrastinatin... Read more
Open your ears and listen to the answer...
of the question you just asked! It's bad enough when my children don't listen. But they are, after all, children. They have short attention spans. They don't listen well in the best of times. It is my job to teach them. I am working on it ... Read more
I am evil Barbara, I am evil Barbara
To get the full effect of that title and what is going on in my head (yeah, not really something the uninitiated should see), chant that to the tune of "I am evil Homer" from the Simpson's.
Anyway, why am I evil today? Or at least, why am ... Read more
Car wash for football, team mom...
It must be getting towards the end of summer because today was my son's football team's car wash fundraiser. It was close to 100' today, so the boys LOVED getting wet. I did have them wash my car. Not the best job, but only $5 and it went to ... Read more
Why do compliments come on days...
when you've eaten like a horse?
Let me preface this "story" with letting you all know that this week has been really long. My boss irritates me, my husband took four days to wash the dishes (another story for another day), I didn't get e... Read more
Results of the game
Okay, so it was a blast. We did lose, but only by 2 runs. I played catcher (as usual) and had a blast heckling the other team. They laughed too, so I think they had fun too. One guy came up... Read more
I might be getting a new boss!!!
So, with the new position being filled by "John" (see earlier blog), there is a hole in one of the two groups that works together. The powers-that-be have decided to take this opportunity to do a full re-org. I am sooooo hoping that I get a ne... Read more
The new puppy has the worst timing!!!
As I've mentioned before, DH and I take the dogs for a walk every night. The boxer is a puppy and has TONS of energy. If she doesn't get her walk, she's just like a little kid on sugar. ... Read more
OK, so really?
There is some "reorganization" going on at my work. One of the bigger changes (at least recently) is moving a packaging group back into Assembly (my department). They announced one of the new "heads" of the group last week and said they would ... Read more
I had a really great blog about bowling with my kids. When I hit Post, I got an error and it cleared my blog! So, believe me when I say it was the best blog EVER! It was funny, touching and even pulled a tear from the most hardened heart. Bu... Read more
Daughter's reaction to last blog
So...being the sweet, loving mother that I am, I had my daughter read just the title of my last blog. She got that expression on her face that said "I can't believe this is MY mother. I am so embarrassed and I'm going to kick her butt...in my ... Read more
My daughter so totally wants to be me!!
Or so I tell her often. She doesn't agree with me, but she is pretty darn happy with me right now. She's at the water park tonight with her friend for the friend's birthday. This morning, we went out to buy a birthday present. We also stoppe... Read more
