the excitement builds


Well, with some much appreciated help from Dewey, I finally managed to snag one of the buttons for her Readathon. I don't know about anyone else participating, but I have to say I am way beyond excited. I'd almost say I've been obsessing (hey, it's a skill I'm quite adept at, what can I say?). Anyway, if only I could find the camera (Rich must have already packed it up for their trip), I would show you all how I have my very favorite pair of comfy fleece pajamas and my favorite pair of slipper socks all freshly washed and folded just waiting for me to don them tomorrow morning after I shower. I would show you the horrible pile of junk food I stockpiled last night, none of it requiring much in the way of prep time, as I don't want to waste valuable reading time cooking. I would show you the numerous piles of books I've gathered up, because one needs lots of options available, right? Yes, you could definitely say I'm looking forward to it!

I'm actually looking forward to today as well. After Rich's class this morning, he'll be coming home so we can all have lunch together, and then my 3 favorite guys will be headed off toward the Atlantic. And I plan to relax! No working on school plans (hope to finish up a few things this morning though) and no housework (also hope to get the bathroom cleaned and the living room vacuumed before they leave). But once they pull out of that driveway, scrapbook room, here I come! Might even try to watch a movie or two this evening. Ah, yes, I am just floating on air this morning...

Have a blast - you deserve some "time off"! Can't wait to hear about (and see) all the fun stuff you end up doing!

OOH that's so exciting! I can't wait to follow along with your reading fun! Are you going to be blogging while you're reading? I wish I could do this too, but with work now Saturdays have definitely become a sleeping day. But I'll be sure to read as much as possible on Saturday ;)

Good luck with the Read-a-thon! It does sound very exciting. I didn't sign up as a cheerleader because I won't be home for a great part of the day, but after I come back I will surely be following everyone's progress.

Aw, you have such a nice weekend planned! And you're so much better prepared than I am. I will have to go out tonight and get easy food!
