Good morning, everyone, it's 11:05am. I'm really sorry for being terribly late, but I just woke up. I was intending on getting up at 8 to cover 25, but I guess I needed that sleep. So I do once again apologize. I will be making up for this on Thursday and next week. Today, I'm monitoring 25 from now until 11:15, then I'm switching over to 14 until 6:55pm. At 6:55, I will return with 25 until 8:52, then call it a night. For tomorrow, I would like for all of you to decide what I should monitor. The District with the majority of the requests will be covered, and I ask all of you to please let me know by midnight what you would like to see covered. On Thursday, I'll be doing some monitoring of all three Districts. Thursday will be my last day of blogging until Monday, as I will be going on vacation from blogging. I'm going to really relax before I go back to college on Monday.
