Well, SV's mom is staying with us, so it's taken a lot of burden off of me having someone to look after him. I can come home at night and have a bit of a breather, then get a full night's sleep, provided I can fall asleep at all. Last night I put him to bed and stayed up reading A Feast For Crows for a few hours.

But SV's been in the hospital since Friday and he's kind of desperate to be home at this point. He should be home by 7pm.

I wonder if I am the only one who found the blog written in the POV of a dying 5 month old, but written by her parents, to be incredibly unnerving...

How would it not be? Heck, I'd not only find it unnerving but flat-out sickening.

It was her parents writing it from her POV, and detailing each post is her completing her own 'bucket list'-she passed away recently and her father updated the blog with what he said was a note that the daughter wrote before she died. A note in her POV talking to her parents.

No one deserves to have their child taken away, and this family has gotten a lot of money raised for various testing procedures relating to the infants illness, but I cannot read these blogs without becoming incredibly unnerved and bothered. Especially when they wrote a note to themselves from their dead baby.

Glad to hear you had some help. Is Feast for Crows the second one? They've all become a blur for me at this point.

No doubt. Hospitals are horrible places.

Yes, FFC is the fourth. I haven't read any of the others. We have all of them, but I grabbed that one at random.

That may be lead to confusion.

I had to google to remind myself but, yeah, wasn't crazy about that one. No Tyrion. No John Snow. I'm not interested in any of the Greyjoy's bullshit. I keep meaning to watch Season 1 of the show and haven't gotten around to it.

A little, but not too bad. I can keep up pretty well and I've read enough about the series to fill in most of the gaps.

The Greyjoy stuff has thus far been really uninteresting, and overall it seems pretty heavy on Cersei, whom I really can't stand. I mean, we're supposed to hate her, she's a reprehensible person, but I don't find anything sympathetic and I don't find her entertaining enough that I can enjoy hating her.
