Hibernating for the winter.

Ok drug companies and news media you win!!!! I am officially frightened of the up coming cold and flu season!!!

I wish I could put our house in a big plastic bubble for the winter. Like the one at the end of the movie E.T. when the house is overtaken by the government men trying to study E.T. and Elliot. But I can't so what's a Mom to do? We will get our yearly flu shots, but not the H1N1. I have hand sanitizers strategically placed all over the house, in the car, and of course in my purse. We are also all so hopped up on vitamins our urine glows.

Other than that I am at a lose as to how else to protect my family.

So I've decided I'm no longer watching news shows about the flu, no longer reading articles about the flu, or listening to anymore talk radio debating about the flu. I am officially putting my head back in the sand, where at least my neurosis won't make me sick!!!

And we are just the opposite. None of us are on viatmins, I only own one little bottle of hand sanitizer, and I'm sure Alex brings all kinds of great little bugs home with him from daycare. I just don't worry about it. If we get sick, we get sick.

I'm sure I would feel different if someone in our house had a compromised immune system or had other health issues.

I do need to get an appointment for Alex to get his flu shot. Guess I need to make that phone call. :)

We'll see if I eat these words later this winter.

Hope you guys stay well!!!!

I know how you feel. Our doctor wants us to give our son the swine flu vaccine because he has underdeveloped lungs, but I am so worried about the unknown side effects of it. I don't know if it would be worse to get the vaccine or the swine flu!
