Down for the Count

Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. What a winter this has been. Four of us are on antibiotics and the fifth will likely start tomorrow. We have strep (and ear infections for a couple). Nasty, nasty stuff. We feel absolutely awful. I keep hoping that each day will bring improvement but thus far we have felt progressively worse. It's frustrating - we are sick and tired of being sick. I think we need to thoroughly disinfect our house after this. All toothbrushes will go in the trash, all phones will be wiped down and all towels, sheets, and pillow cases will be thoroughly washed in hot water. We'll make it but we can't wait to be healthy again!

I'm so sorry - we have been sick a lot too this winter and it's so hard to deal with! I hope you guys get better soon!

Side note, I bleach white towels and sheets after we've had sickness, but a friend told me that you can put a cup of vinegar in the rinse cycle for colored loads and it helps cut down on germs. I'm not sure if that's true, but vinegar is cheap and I figure it can't hurt.

I hope you guys get well soon!

Don't forget doorknobs and light switches!

OH NO! I hope you all start feeling better soon! Don't forget the kids toys too (especially Titus')....I normally throw most of the stuff in a bleach/water mix and rinse thoroughly in hot water.

Ah, kids are so cute and cuddly. I remember kissing on Marcus and then getting sick. That definitely didn't stop me.
It's great when they get older and they're not getting as many colds and such.
I'm doing some blog visiting of my own today. Since returning to work full time there's not much time. I'm glad to hear all is well in your neck of the woods.

Oh no, I hope you all start feeling better for good soon. Asa is still sick but hopefully that will change with the new medicine today. (((Hugs))))
