Holy crap, I'm tired. I originally wasn't planning on posting this update for another hour and a half, but I'm honestly afraid that I'll fall asleep before then.
This is why I'm tired...
That there is a total of about five years of unending energy. He's a one and a half, she's almost four. Holy crud...four. I'm getting old. But, I'm lucky enough to be their aunt. I spent the morning with them while their mom (my sister-in-law) ran a race and my brother (their dad) cheered her on.
We watched a couple of movies (kind of), played with some dinosaurs, made more than a few giant messes, cleaned up said messes, built with blocks, knocked over blocks, and generally just played hard. They're fun, but I am apparently no longer up to snuff. After four hours, I was beat. I've been dragging can all day since I left their house.
I came home after a couple of errands and parked it on the couch. I watched a few episodes of Gilmore Girls and goofed around on my iPad. After dinner, I started doing some reading, but I'm finding that I'm dozing a little more than I should be. So...early post.
It's just me today since Darian's done with his participation in the read-a-thon, so let's get my numbers officially recorded.
Elle's Current Stats
Total Time Read : 633 minutes

Goal: 900 pages
Books Finished Friday/Saturday : 0

I'm not sure how much reading I'll get done tomorrow. To be honest, I may not make it to any of my goals. I have some bread to bake and some peppers to slice and freeze. I got a sweet, sweet deal from a local farm store today and brought myself home a big batch of bells.
But...even if I don't make goal...well, I'm good. It's been a great week for reading and I think I've held true to the point of this read-a-thon. I've enjoyed my reading time. It hasn't felt obligatory. I haven't felt like I'm chasing the goal. I'm just reading some good books in times when I feel like reading. Regardless of the numbers that come out of this one, I'm calling it a success.
I'll be back tomorrow night with a wrap up! Until then...
