Misc: I’m hitting a very big lull so it’s lots of moving and break time for me. I will be doing some cheering in the next hour to break it up. And I might sit outside and read as well because it’s windy and cool and I feel like that will keep me awake!

      Thanks, Dana! I’m cheering on twitter so I just looked over the spreadsheet and did a little cheering. Refreshing for me. Totally feel like I’ve hit my second wind. Whether it’s the 3rd cup of coffee + carrots + hummus or just pushing past the wall of tiredness, I have no idea! :)

  2. Congrats on your productive readathon! CHeering you on from Michigan

  3. You have put some good work in, congratulations. Hope the rest of your reading and snacking goes well!
