Blowing on hot coals

Drat - still dealing with the rash, and having a frustrating experience with the triage nurse at the pediatrician's office (a.k.a. she's not returning my calls).
I may be making an unannounced visit to the office tomorrow. I hate having to do something like that. I'm sure it's not that big of a deal, but I have "issues" with being the patient that makes people roll their eyes.
He's still got no fever, and the rash doesn't seem to be irritating him at all, but he is drinking WAY more than usual (he's normally a very light drinker) - and he's been filling diapers left and right. (And that's saying something, since he already has a VERY healthy GI tract). I can't find anything that matches up with his symptoms.

It's just really hard for a mama to have her cute baby all spotted. That's what it really boils down to. I hate to bug the doctor because my cute kid looks less cute with a rash.

In other news, I've been contemplating starting an online book club/save the intellect of the stay-at-homes club. But I've realized that I don't have it in me right now. Does anyone know of anything along those lines that already exists that I could just hook myself up with? The ladies at my church have a book club, but the reading seemed a little light ("safe?") for me, and having a mere 1 hour discussion for an entire book seems wholly inadequate, especially when everyone's attention is really on the refreshments anyway. I think taking a whole month to discuss and dissect a book via an online forum sounds delightful, I just need to find one that I like. (And if I can't, then maybe I will start one after all......)

I would LOVE to be in a book club with ya! I have been reading quite a bit lately, and am running out of books that I have heard are good, so I need more ideas! If you want to start one, I would be happy to read with ya. I am not sure of any online ones, but I will help you look?:)

Hurray! Thanks for joining my online club Ms. Demille! I was hoping to attract women such as yourself who really wanted to go DEEP into discussion over an entire month and have something useful in the back of their brains during the day. I just finished the September book today and am going to try and get the discussion going. Hop in when you are ready and tell anyone else you know that they are welcome to join :)
