Final Readathon Update

Well, folks, I made it 19.5 hours.  In the end, my downfall was the baby who wouldn’t sleep.  Daniel actually went to sleep between 9 and 10 and was totally passed out.  Then, around 11, he woke up and decided it was PLAY TIME!  He spent at least 20 minutes each on trying to roll from his back to his front and then trying to scoot somewhere when I finally put him onto his stomach.  He didn’t quite accomplish either, but it wasn’t for lack of trying.  When 12:30 rolled around and I realized I’d read about 40 pages of the final book I was hoping to finish and Daniel still wasn’t showing signs of sleep, I realized that this was the end for me.  I cannot possibly make it through 24 full hours at this rate.  Since I started early, though, I did participate in 19.5 hours, which might be my most ever, I’m not sure.
