the time draws near


Just over an hour from now, the Readathon will be underway! I'm more worried than ever about being able to stay awake through the night tonight. Although I'm very good at getting by on little sleep, I'm horrible at getting by on no sleep.

And thus far, during my free weekend here, nothing has gone as planned. That's not to say it hasn't been quite relaxing and enjoyable though. I had planned to scrapbook the day away yesterday, but I just couldn't get those creative juices flowing. Made one simple layout, and then decided to make up a few cards using up some scraps sitting there on my table. Hoped that would get me in the mood. But it didn't. And since this is supposed to be a fun weekend, not a torturous one, I decided to go do something else instead. Read a bit, looked through some scrapbook magazines, and then totally vegged in front of the TV (honestly cannot remember the last time I did that!).

Tried to stay up late, so I could sleep in this morning, but was out by 11:30. Had to get up at 4:00 to tape something for homeschool purposes, but I'd planned on just starting the tape and then going back to sleep. (Yeah, I know, perhaps the first thing I ought to read today is the manual for the VCR so I could learn how to program it, huh?) But again my plans went awry...I just couldn't get back to sleep...so I got 4 hours less sleep than I hoped.

I'm so anxious to get underway here! That's probably why I'm babbling like an idiot, huh? Then again, I'm prone to babbling, so that may not be the reason after all.

Well, guess I shall go grab some breakfast, and then go visit some other readers to wish them luck.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Good luck! And have fun! I'm half tempted to do this but I usually sleep alot on Saturdays so not sure that I could stay awake enough. Sounds lots of fun though! Enjoy yourself!

Have fun!

I hope you're snuggled into your most comfortable reading chair now and don't read these comments until tomorrow. Enjoy!

If you get too tired, just take a nap, it's ok! I probably will have to do that myself. I still haven't figured out how I'm going to manage the medicine I have to take every day at 6pm and which usually makes me extremely sleepy by 9pm. I guess lots of coffee?
