Read-athon: Best laid plans….

I had such awesome plans for the read-athon and had been planning for this event for weeks.  However last night I noticed my throat was a bit scratchy and I felt a little achy.  I thought perhaps it was because I was tired from a long week at school, so I took some NyQuil and was asleep by 9:30.  When I woke up this morning I was faced with a full-blown head cold!  My head is so stuffy that it feels like it weighs about 25 pounds, and while I am trying to read, my eyes can only focus for about 10 minutes at a time.  I am hoping maybe hubby can go buy some drugs that will help with the pressure and I can continue reading, even if it is at a rather slow pace.

Here are my stats so far:
Starting reading at 7:15AM
Finished reading at 9:45AM (with about 6 short naps in between)

Book read:  From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
Books completed:  1
Number of pages read this portion of the read-athon:  approx. 125 (I had started the book last night)
Number of pages read total:  125

Next book to read:  Harriet the Spy
