It's about knowing your own limitations!
I just wanted to wish everyone who is participating in the Read-a-thon on Saturday good luck!
I am not participating because whilst I survive on around 6 hours sleep most nights (not enough really), anything less than that and I will be feeling it for days and days afterward! All those who have signed up have my admiration, and good luck wishes for staying awake and alert!
As it is, I laid down on the couch for 10 minutes this afternoon after getting everything ready for dinner tonight and nearly fell asleep in that short amount of time! With the warmer weather, it is perfect barbecue weather, so I had friends around for dinner! The highlight was the fresh strawberries from the local market dipped in chocolate for desert - very simple, but oh my gosh it felt decadent!
Instead of reading all night I will be attempting to stay awake for the full 90 minutes of the Chelsea FC soccer game tonight. I do attempt to do this most Saturday nights, but generally am not too successful! I don't see tonight being very different I have to say! It is a little concerning when I set myself up to watch a triple header, and wake up to the sound of car racing having slept through all three games and not seen a single ball kicked! That's happened more than once!
