Miscellaneous comments:
I hate to do it, but I just read the same paragraph in the neighborhood of ten times and I still have no clue what I read. Think I'll take a nap. Rich's alarm clock is set to go off in about an hour anyway, so I'll try to drag my lazy butt out of bed then. Annie gave up about 15 minutes ago and hit the sack, too.

Sleep tight! :) I hope to see you towards the end, but if not, you ROCKED this Debi!

Amanda said...

Have a great nap, and Annie, too! She made it so long t his time!!!

Trish said...

Enjoy the nap, Debi. You've done great so far, but I know it can get painful in the end.

Trish said...

But be sure to come back from my next vlog--it's one that I WILL NOT keep up after the readathon is over...
