My book blog now has its own home. Please visit me at LYNNE'S BOOK REVIEWS. Of course you're more than welcome to see what's going on in my personal life, but if you want to talk books, that's where I'll be!

Had to post this cartoon. I thought it was funny. Click on it to enlarge.

My baby is sick. Three missed school days with sore throat, cough, congestion and achiness. Nyquil, Dayquil, Nyquil, Dayquil. Doctor's appointment in an hour. He'll hate it because they'll say they can't believe how tall he is, which he already knows. And he hates sitting in the waiting room with newborns and 2-year-olds. Time to change to a family doctor instead of a pediatrician. That aside, hopefully they'll give him antibiotics so he can start feeling better again and get back to school.

The mascara I talked about in my previous blog is Maybelline, not Loreal (gotta get my cheapo brands straight!)

I finally got health insurance. Golden Rule - the individual coverage of United Healthcare, which was what I had on COBRA - has agreed to cover me. Kinda weird that they only excluded anything having to do with ovarian cysts (which I had 15 years ago when I was pregnant) and no exclusions with back problems. I don't get it, but whatever. At least I'm covered.

I've seen some good movies lately: Benjamin Button (a little long but really good), Milk, Revolutionary Road and Slumdog Millionaire. It's great when there are movies that Larry and I both want to see, otherwise we have to compromise; I have to go see James Bond and he has to see Hotel for Dogs or Beverly Hills Chihuahua.

I've figured out why I do this blog. It's kind of like an adult version of a diary but one that people are PERMITTED to read (Dad!)

Never heard back from my sister yesterday. She was on her way to the doctor to find out why she is still sick. Her headache is better but she still feels achey even though she's taken antibiotics. She declined a spinal tap in the hospital while in Maui, which they do to check for meningitis, and last I spoke to her she wondered if that might still need to be ruled out.
