Miscellaneous comments:
Soooooo tired. Gray read for a couple more hours, but went to bed about midnight. Rich went to bed a little while ago, set the alarm for 5:30 (we'll see if he actually gets up). Annie is the only one who seems to be going strong.

Those kids seem to be able to cope with this kind of stuff a bit better don't they. Until they crash!

Eva said...

You broke 1K!!!!!!!!! You rock!!!!!!!!! As does Annie. :) lol @ Rich and his alarm clock. If I go to bed, I'm done for (in general, obviously not tonight when I'm hosting! Lol).

Well done for getting so far in the read-a-thon. I am very impressed. Well done to Annie too for still going on.

Trish said...

Hang in there Debi! You're doing fabulous--is this your best readathon yet or what!!

I'm fading fast. Don't think I'm gonna try anymore (which makes it my worst readathon), but I'll have fun cheering you guys on. I like that better anyway. :P
