  3. It is almost 6 am here. We start at 5. I'm getting a late start. I am not hungry yet. I do plan on making ceviche though.
  4. I'm a mom and I do this readathon for me. I like reading all 24 hours with cheering thrown in. I asked my family to read with me for an hour this morning. We will see how that goes. I love reading, sewing, and watching TV and movies. I just went back to school and I have homework do tonight. I will have to take time to do that.

I had many unexpected interruptions. I helped with chemistry homework, I did my own homework, I fixed hair for homecoming, and I was just plain wore out from the week. I didn't get to read as much as I would have liked but, I did enjoy the time I did.
