Cat naps are good if they let you finish! :)

Hopefully the nap refreshed you so you can continue to enjoy reading.

You did not blow it, Debi! You more than deserved that nap. And now you will have more energy for the last few hours :)

What a great title for a book- New Guinea Tapeworms and Jewish Grandmothers: Tales of Parasites and People. It sounds like it would either be fun or gross. Have fun reading :D

Napping is not blowing it! Do you feel better, though? My nap just left me groggier, and it was so hard to wake up. I was so grumpy I threatened the cat with death several times. She just wouldn't stop meowing.

You are doing great!! Keep up the great job!! I can't wait to read your review of the Adoration of Jeanna Fox! :)

Oh, you're doing so well, though! 45 minutes isn't that bad--I just woke up from a 2 and a half hour catnap. :)
