shortly after my 22:00 progress report, i found myself re-reading the same sentence over and over, and i decided that enough was enough. i laid down, and i was out. i slept for about 3 1/2 hours, then got up and showered and went to church. i'm now home - and making my final report.

Frame of Mind: while i would have liked to make it through to the end, i did last longer than in my two previous read-a-thons! i had a lot of fun - and i'm already looking forward to april!
