Right. Time for thank yous. I’m starting them now, because by the time 9 AM gets here, my butt is crashing.
Thanks again to all my sponsors. You guys are awesome. I raised $228.30 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Sweet. I realize half of you will never read this, but that’s ok. That’s not really the point of all this. Or is it? I don’t even know anymore. I'll let you know when I don't feel like I've been run over by a forklift.
Thanks to hubby for taking over for a bit. And getting me food. And checking up on me every now and then. I think you’re going to have to make dinner tonight…
Thanks to Jaynee, my monitor. You’re an awesome cheerleader, and I enjoyed reading your blog all night.
To all my fellow bloggers: you guys are incredible. I really enjoyed this a LOT. For all you B schedulers, good luck. To everyone who finishes, awesome. To those who couldn’t make it all the way through, don’t sweat it. This was NOT easy by any means.
Yeah…more in a bit. I’m starving…
No more naps. It's getting harder to wake up.
I realize I haven't posted anything of substance for the past several hours. Oh well.
And I took yet ANOTHER power nap. This time me and Fizzy crammed onto the couch and napped. Actually, I was the only one crammed. How a 25 pound dog managed to take up half the couch is a mystery...
TWO MORE HOURS!!
Took another power nap. I NEEDED that. I wouldn't have been able to finish without it.
Forgot to thank my mommy for sponsoring me. Thanks mom. Even though you'll probably never read this because no matter how many times I've explained this to you, you still don't get it. That's ok. I still heart you.
The sun is coming up.
I can hear birds singing.
I'm slooooooooooooooooowly fading....
Do people REALLY enjoy getting up this early? UGH! No thank you.
I'm cheating a bit. I'm posting lyrics of my current favorite song. It's called "There's Hope" by India.Arie. Great song, and the lyrics couldn't be more true.
Back when I had a little
I thought that I needed a lot
A little was over rated,
but a lot was a little too complicated
You see-Zero didn't satisfy me
A million didn't make me happy
That's when I learned a lesson
That it's all about your perception
Hey-are you a pauper or a superstar
So you act, so you feel, so you are
It ain't about the size of your car
It's about the size of the faith in your heart
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
Off in the back country of Brazil
A met a young brother that made me feel
That I could accomplish anything.
You see just like me he wanted to sing
He had no windows and no doors
He lived a simple life and was extremely poor
On top of all of that he had no eye sight,
but that didn't keep him from seein' the light
He said, what's it like in the USA,
and all I did was complain
He said-livin' here is paradise
He taught me paradise is in your mind
You know that
Every time I turn on the T.V. (There's Hope)
Somebody's acting crazy (There's Hope)
If you let it, it will drive you crazy (There's Hope)
but I'm takin' back my power today (There's Hope)
Gas prices they just keep on rising (There's Hope)
The government they keep on lying
but we gotta keep on surviving
Keep living our truth and do the best we can do
Stand up for your rights [echo]
Keep shining your light [echo]
And show the world your smile [echo]
To all the random people popping in and out of my journal making comments, thanks. I can't really form a coherent thought right now to reply. But I appreciate you cheering me on.
I'm exhausted, but this has been a REALLY cool experience.
Now where the hell is the sun?!?
(and why is "delirious" not an option for LJs mood themes?)
