Currently: March

Current Book - Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls -- I loved The Glass Castle and am so far liking this book, even though it's totally different.

Current Drink - Iced Tea. Instead of having another cup of coffee at work, I have been making a glass of iced tea. I always have plenty of lemons on hand! 

Current Excitement - Boston! It's all happening!

Current fashion trend - Pajamas. When I am not in running clothes or work clothes, I am mostly in my pajamas. 

Current Favorite Blog/Website - This site, and others like it. I am itching to travel! 

Current Garden Item - I have radishes! The other things are still just tiny sprouts, but the radishes are taking off!
Current Love - Mangoes. I even eat them at work and that is not a pretty thing.

Current Food - Everything I can get my hands on, as I stated yesterday

Current Indulgence - Pirates Booty

Currently Pondering - Why half of my answers are about food. And of course, what I am going to have for dinner tonight. I did a really bad job grocery shopping this weekend, only getting enough to tide me over for a couple days. Not that I don't have a ton of pantry items that I can work from, but I am low on veggies. 

Current Mood - Tired. I didn't sleep well on Sunday night and that, coupled with early mornings for the last...um...well forever, as well as later nights, have made for one tired pup. I have been averaging about 6.5 - 7 hours of sleep lately and that is not enough. 

Current New Find - This popcorn from Trader Joes. In fact, it was so good that my roommate ate it all before I could have more than a handful! 

Current Outfit - Besides pajamas, it's mostly been jeans and tank top/t-shirt 

Current Peeve - On Monday, I went early to spin class so I can get a bike in front of the fan. This lady comes in late and MOVES the fan, so it will blow on her! Luckily the guy next to me, who had also gotten in early for the same reason, has bigger balls than me and he went and moved it back and scolded her. 
Current Song - Two Door Cinema Club -- Something Good Can Work



Current Triumph - Broski's attitude about running. I am not sure if it's actually a "triumph", but he is getting more and more into it. Just watch, before we know it, he will be running circles around me at the next marathon. 
Current TV Show - Homeland. I have only seen a couple of them, but so far they are good.

Current Wish-List - More time! The weekends are flying by and actually, the weeks are as well! 

Currently Delaying - Finishing my taxes. I did them but then CA wouldn't let me e-file and so I printed it out but just haven't sent it. I have absolutely no good reason not to do it; I am just lazy. 

What have you been up to lately? What are you delaying? Are there any triumphs in your life?


  1. Minnesota wouldn't let me efile either which was super annoying! I did my taxes in February as I knew I'd be getting a refund. I am one of those weird people that actually enjoys doing her taxes!

    Yea for your garden starting to produce. And I an envious of your supply of lemons. I love lemons in my water, but rarely buy them in the grocery store but if I had a lemon tree, I'd drink lemon water way more often!

    Lately I have been studying, doing packing stuff, working, and trying to see friends as much as possible. And running, but not as much as I would like...

  2. Hey don't rush those taxes unless they owe you...I always owe so I hang on to my money as long as I can :)

  3. You've inspired me to make iced tea again... I forget about it until the summer time. So excited that Boston is only a few weeks away, yay!!!

  4. Man, I had my taxes done in January. HA. Of course, I was using my refund to put a down payment on a car so I was really interested to see my refund. I was also able to e-file. That's so weird that CA won't let you!

    Lately, I've been doing a lot of writing! I feel like that's all I do anymore. I'm not complaining. :)

  5. We've been delaying finishing our tax returns, too, as my taxes are kind of complicated this time around due to the fact that I had an honorarium and a moving allowance that I don't have W-2s for...

  6. Lately I've been doing a lot of being lazy. I don't really know why. Catching up on some long-overdue rest, I guess.

    Good luck in Boston!

  7. I love that the guy moved the fan back! What was that lady thinking?! I am so excited for you!! Boston is going to be amazing!!

  8. There have been more days than not that I change into pajamas when I get home from work and/or picking up G from daycare. They're just so comfy! If I'm honest, I'll also tell you that I've actually dropped off G at daycare while still in PJs (that are covered by an enormous puffy, long coat) and then proceeded to work at home in them all day. ha.

    My current triumph really belongs to Sweets and me. After hemming and hawing about when we'd travel to Italy, we finally decided on exact dates and are ready to snag our tickets (we just need to wait to complete this trip to Boston, so we have enough miles for two tickets, instead of only one).

  9. Good for the guy in spin class for scolding that lady and moving the fan back. Shame on her for moving it in the first place!

    I can't believe it's already Boston time! Hope you have a wonderful trip and enjoy the race and the city!

  10. I loved Half Broke Horses! Such a good book!

  11. I have an audio copy of The Glass Castle but haven't listened to it yet. Congrats on the radishes! It's still too cold here for planting but I am getting antsy to get stuff in the ground. I think I'd like a spin class. I put my bike on the trainer in the winter and it worked out great.

  12. I loved Half Broke Horses. Not as good as The Glass Castle, which is one of my all time favorites, but I really liked it.

    When do you head to Boston?
