First of all, thank you to all of you who commented, liked, or otherwise showed support last night when I mentioned my kid’s cough. It means a lot to me.
As many of you might have predicted, his cough was better this morning, because why would it stick around when the doctor needed to hear it? But we went to the ER anyway, a very nice doctor saw us, and the poor kid might have a lingering case of strep (even though he has no fever and is at this moment running around the yard yelling, “BUT SHE’S MY WIFE!”). So antibiotics it is to try to get rid of the itty-bitty pustules in his throat, and holy CRAP that’s a disgusting word. That’s going on the list, which you can still feel free to add to. Ugh.
What was I saying? Oh, right. So that took up most of the day, because the hospital is 45 minutes away, ER’s are busy, and then there was McDonald’s and the library. I was going to post something a bit more substantial today about why I don’t feel qualified to post writing advice, only personal experience and example, but my brain is too fried to do it. Basically, I’m an unqualified bum, and maybe I’ll expand on that another day. 🙂
Oh, speaking of the library, which should I read first?

Divergent. Daughter of Smoke and Bone was really good, but Divergent is amazing.

Glad your son’s cough is better. I’ve been coughing myself and am finally taking an antibiotic. So I’m glad his cough won’t get any worse. As for the books, my vote is with Daughter of Smoke and Bone first. But definitely read Divergent. I enjoyed both.

I enjoyed Divergent, but haven’t read the other one yet.

We have been passing *the cough* around for the last two months. Enough already!
