I finally did it and MAN do I feel GREAT!!!

Friday, August 14, 2009      8 comments

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?

Thursday, August 13, 2009      2 comments

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

Tuesday, August 11, 2009      2 comments

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!

Tuesday, August 11, 2009      4 comments

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!!

Monday, August 10, 2009      3 comments

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

Sunday, August 09, 2009      3 comments

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

Kuna Days!!!

Friday, August 07, 2009      1 comments

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?

Friday, August 07, 2009      3 comments

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

Thursday, August 06, 2009      3 comments

No, the two items are not related, but I'm going to tell you about them both anyway. emoticon First, sodium. ... Read more

I gotta get out of this funk!

Wednesday, August 05, 2009      6 comments

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...

Tuesday, August 04, 2009      5 comments

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

Monday, August 03, 2009      6 comments

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...

Sunday, August 02, 2009      1 comments

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...

Saturday, August 01, 2009      7 comments

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

Friday, July 31, 2009      2 comments

We lost. 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
