Yeah, well. Since I have to miss the SCBWI Summer Conference in Los Angeles this year, I figure I may as well get a comic strip out of it. :-)
I discovered that the antibiotic drops I was taking for pink eye made them much worse RIGHT before I was supposed to leave for LA. So I had a choice: to go anyway, or to cancel and see a doctor instead, just in case there was a more serious condition or at the very least to get other medication. I opted for the latter.
I'm relieved it's just pink eye and nothing serious, but a bit frustrated with timing.
Ah well. I look forward to seeing people's #LA15SCBWI tweets and photos!
