Visit with Bro and Moms
My big brother went camping in the mountains in Idaho for the past week. He's staying the night in town before driving home to Washington. Since he was in town, my family and I met him and his family and my mom (okay, our mom, but I'm her favo... Read more

I finally did it and MAN do I feel GREAT!!!
A little bit of a back story first. Every day that I can, I eat my lunch on the patio outside at work. It is my time to myself to finally be warm, to be left alone and to read my book (or take a nap, depending on how the day has been). Today ... Read more
Did I make the most of my day?
I really don't know. So, probably not, right? I got up at my normal time and did my normal thing to get ready for and go to work. I tried to be less annoyed by my car pool companion, but that didn't go so well. I wasn't AS annoyed, but he st... Read more
Another Sparker's comment may change my day
I read someone else's blog and it started out with "I made the most of my day today." How many of us can say that? I know I can't...okay, I can, I'd just be lying! LOL! I've decided that when I get up tomorrow, I am going to adopt that attit... Read more
I hate computers and outlets with reset buttons!
Another one of my stupendous blogs was almost written. I was just adding the last meaningful, soul-searching line when my daughter plugs in the toaster. And?? What's that got to do with anything? Toaster and computer are on the same circuit ... Read more
I'm a tasty little morsel!!
If you don't believe me, ask the mosquitoes! LOL!! DH and I took the rat-dog and pony-puppy for a walk after dinner. We went on the short route because neither one of us really wanted to be out there, but the dogs insisted. (They're good at ... Read more
Dog park and house cleaning
Okay, so we'll start with the fun part. DH asked if I would like to accompany him and the babies to the dog park about 20 minutes away. I hadn't been there so I was happy to go. My son saw us getting into the vehicle and came out asking if he... Read more
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
Shortest reign ever and sodium
No, the two items are not related, but I'm going to tell you about them both anyway.
First, sodium. ... 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
