Well, after several years of lurking in the shadows, I've finally done it! I've committed to Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon! I figure, I'm reading all the time anyway, why not do it in some sort of official, yet fun, capacity?
I've got a stack of library books, a bunch of books that I own and have never read, a traveling husband, a visiting cat, AND I just baked a 4 1/2 lb. pound cake. Seriously. I just weighed myself with it and then without it. It weighs FOUR-AND-A-HALF POUNDS! Ha! That is awesome! Wait, wasn't I lamenting the lack of healthy eating choices during the last Read-a-Thon? Um...yeah...Well, it's not like I can't make something healthy between now and then! Besides, I'm sure I'll have half of it eaten by then anyway. I have a small bag of Brussels sprouts in the fridge. Wish me luck on Sunday.
If you're looking for something indulgent to do this weekend, consider joining the Read-a-Thon, even if it's just for a few hours. You will literally have hundreds of fellow readers with which to commiserate/rejoice/share your joy/feel your pain and there are even prizes to be had!
And here I've been so proud of myself for the fairly regular up-in-the-morning, asleep-at-night schedule that I've been keeping lately. Oh well...what better cause?
