It's Time to link u p to Farley at Oh Boy Third Grade for Currently.

Here's mine!

So the 2 truths and a fib....

1. I go to Starbucks almost daily. So true! I actually just ordered some Mocha Powder though and I have some espresso beans so I can try and make my own soy mochas at home; but my espresso machine broke - I have a stovetop espresso maker somewhere but I haven't seen it since I packed my kitchen stuff away for a renovation :(.

2. I once commuted 70 miles each way for a teaching job! FIB! Although my very first second grade teaching job was 55 miles away - not quite as bad as 70. But 2 whole hours each day driving plus my first job ever led to extreme stress and fatigue. Everyone's first job is super tough though!

3. I wrote a 50 page novella during the month of November one year. YES! It was for NaNoWriMo, also known as National Novel Writing Month. It was quite a challenge and I am glad I completed it but no, I will never do that again.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a restful weekend!


  1. I don't think we could live without our espresso maker either. It helps me start my day the "right" way! I loved the pictures I saw from your Blogger meet up! Looks like you guys had a blast!

    1. I have GOT to look for that espresso stove top maker, because if I can't find it , it is time to buy a new one! Thanks for saying hi Jaime! I love your blog!

  2. Wow! I'm impressed that you wrote a novela! I would love a Roomba! I keep telling my husband it's a necessity but he isn't on board just yet!

  3. Yes, it was definitely fun meeting the New England bloggers! I'm sorry you sat way at the other end of the table, so we didn't really get to chat! Next time!

    I need to get back on track with exercise, too!

  7. For the roomba, if you have pets, read some reviews online. People generally arent satisfied with it, even the pet model, BUT if I didnt have a giant St Bernard I would like mine! It could be quite a time saver!
