I actually woke up before my alarms starting going off this morning. Amazing, considering I am the anti-Morning Person and… uhhh, it’s Saturday!!
I went to bed late last night (i.e., almost 2am), and was awakened a few short hours later (by my husband, snoring not-so-gently on the couch), and then another 1.5 hours later (having a nasty allergy attack; one of these days I’m going to ban Lizzie the Evil Min Pin from my bed… for reals).
So, I’m up. I’m here. I’m sleepy already, before the fun even begins, but I’m here. Drinking hot chocolate. Eating chocolate-frosted Hostess Donettes (courtesy of snoring hubby; he’s forgiven!). I’m also showered and wearing some comfy (but clean!) jammies to start the day. And the darkness is finally beginning to fade outside my window.
In 4.5 hours, my basement is going to be taken over by loud, energetic Cub Scouts. Nick is hosting the first Pinewood Derby Workshop of the year from noon ’til 4pm. Oh, goody!! I plan to hide somewhere else in the house, under a blanket with a flashlight, book, and maybe some Donettes. But it’s possible that I’ll have to take a short break from reading sometime this morning so that I can do some last-minute straightening around the house before the boys invade.
I definitely see a nap in my future. But, for now, I’m anxiously awaiting Read-A-Thon start time… 27 minutes to go! I’ll be back to update in a couple of hours, and I’ll be Tweeting a lot today, too. Happy reading to all of my fellow ‘thonners!
