It's 10 here. We're home, the boys are finally in bed (the two small ones AND the big one) and I'm going to read a little in support of all of you. I am a little sleepy and it's an hour past my bedtime and I have NO IDEA how ya'll are gonna make it all night!

I can't think of any more cheers, so instead, a Haiku:

Trish, don't be tired
there is so much left to read
perhaps some coffee?

Laura said...

I love that there is a haiku in your honor! :)

It's great that you are really liking the book you are reading! That will sure help as we are starting to move into the later, sleepier hours!

Great haiku Lisa!

This is nowhere near as good as a haiku:

Q. What did the detective do when he didn't believe the librarian's story?
A. He booked her!

When I write haiku
I count on my fingers. Good
thing I have two hands.

My husband spent about an hour looking at Harry Potter Puppet videos. The laughing was a bit distracting to my reading. :-)

Debi said...

I've lost count of how many times Annie's watched that video least 5, maybe more!

I'm getting drowsy again myself. Hoping a snack will revive me.

You made great reading speed this go round! I keep trying to get to a page a minute, but just can't get there.
