Miscellaneous comments:
I can't believe I already gave in and took a nap. And I have to admit it hasn't perked me up one iota. Is it time for me to admit that I'm just too old for this? I know, I know, that's such a cop-out, huh? I'm not going to give up yet, but I'm beginning to think this may finally be the read-a-thon when I just throw in the towel and go to bed at some point.

Don't let the nap get you down, Debi. If it will perk you right up then it's mighty worth it. You're doing great--and love you right back. :)

I'm about to give in and take a nap, too.

Don't throw in the towel my Debi :( Just take a nap :) You need a longer nap!! Go sleep for an hour! Then you'll feel better. You still need rotel dip! I'm telling you, that's the problem!
