  1. Leah, I'm glad you did this. I don't know about you, but I generally find it easier to write 100 words than a single one! - Nancy

  2. Funny.... an ex-work colleague sent me this late last year. It was insightful then and is still insightful today.

  3. This was fun! Coffee - ah, who doesn't love it?! Thanks for sharing, Leah! :-)

  4. Hey Leah! It seems we both keep dust bunnies. Man, those suckers can breed. Would you pass me a blueberry muffin, please? Indigo

  5. you are so cheating with "dust bunny" LOL.

    Get the is incredible. I didnt think I would love it quite this much but am I a complete convert. I know you love to read and I do too..I thought I would miss the paper version. After a few months, I dont even want to read regular books.

  6. We'll need a ruling from the judges on 'dust bunny' being one word.
