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

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

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...

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

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
I might be getting a new boss!!!
Thursday, July 30, 2009      2 comments

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!!!
Wednesday, July 29, 2009      3 comments

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?
Tuesday, July 28, 2009      5 comments

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
