Hour 2: A Slow Start

Dear Me,

I can't seem to focus. I'm all tied up and I didn't expect things to go a little off. I thought I was ready but I couldn't seem to put my mind at ease.

I have my books in one pile so I wouldn't be searching the house and waste time. I bought snacks and drinks in prior so I wouldn't need to sneak out in the grocery in the middle of the night. I had some house chores done so I wouldn't have to feel uneasy about my cluttered space. I even requested hubby to take care of our little boy for a day so I could flip the pages of my books faster.

I even signed up to cheerlead other readers.

Well, it seems like I am the one needing it. *bonkself*

I will be signing off for a few hours and clear my head. *sniff*

  1. ((hugs)) Hour 2 was a slow start for me. I'm not a morning person so it's been rough going. Hang in there!

  2. oh, it's started?

    maybe you just need to do something else for a while? go out the house and read in a cafe? or read what you normally won't read? like anthologies, or nonfiction...

    i'm not joining, though. i have too many other things to do. and my books are always there, anyway.

  5. I'm off to a slow start myself (I have three kids) but know I will get more read than I normally would. Enjoy the rest of the read-a-thon!

  17. Hope you found the focus you needed! Everyone needs a break once in a while...maybe a little nap will do?
