Germs Germs Go Away

and don't come again another day.

I know you all know how OCD I can be about germs. I walk around with wet wipes in each hand when someone has the stomach flu - refusing to touch anything with my bare hands. I scrub, I launder, I air out the house, I spray the house I obsess.

Last week Lauren got a cold. She was better in about 48 hours.

Then Hailey got sick - she is not better yet - 96 hours later

Now...I am getting sick. I am trying to fight it. I feel the fight. But my throat hurts, my neck hurts, my head is in the clouds and it sucks. I don't have a fever. I just don't feel well.

So tomorrow - our windows will be open, the Lysol can will be emptied, the door handles and phones and remotes will be scrubbed the sheets will be washed and one or two of us might be visiting the Dr. Yippee.

Terra.........oh girl I am so sorry for you. I'm a bit freakish about too many germs, but I think you got me beat. I hope you and Hailey fee better soon, and I agree, perhaps a visit to the Dr. is in order. I know it's no fun.
Wish I could send chicken soup and anti bacterial wipes your way!

Oh Terra...so sorry. Please take it easy, and might I suggest a few Circus Peanuts and a good night's rest?

Feel better soon!

I hope you feel better soon. The chicken noodle soup from Chick Fil A could help and they have a drive up.

I am the same way when we get sick. It is hard now, because what would be a cold in winter is allergies now! SO confusing!

I hope you both feel better!

I hope you are feeling better. We went through that with the stomach flu this week. I'm the only one who hasn't had it. I've had the Lysol out too!
