Sick of being sick.............

So this is getting a little old & I know no one wants to hear me snivel & whine but this is getting ridiculous. We have been circulating these germs around our house since mid September. My little germ factories love to cough & sneeze on our food, wipe their snotty noses on the face clothes & towels, I even caught one using my tooth brush - UGGGGG & I just don't see an end to the madness.

I wish I had bought shares in disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, Cold FX & Kleenex. I have been faithfully popping 2 - 4 Cold FX daily, 4000 IU Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Multivitamin & we are still sick.

Brandon & I had a killer flu that knocked us both on our behinds; I missed a whole week of work & the side effects of that lingered for a couple of more weeks. Was it the dreaded H1N1 - who knows? I was too sick to go to the doctors until about 5 days had passed, then I went to Urgent Care & waited there for three hours & when no one had seen me yet I packed up, went home & crawled back into bed where I should have been to begin with.

Last weekend we actually had three whole DAYS where none of us were sick, no one had snot running down their face or were hacking up a lung. It was marvelous & I was so happy finally the old immune system was doing it job. We even spent some time with friends & saw a movie - it was great to do something normal for a change.

It was a short lived reprieve & we all have sore throats, coughing, & runny noses all over again.

I hope to get back to blogging when I actually have something to write about if we ever get out of the house again.

I guess the good news in all of this is we are definitely catching up on our sleep. My life sucks sometimes.

Oh can I relate. Since Sept 11, but who's counting, one or more of the 6 of us have been sick. I now have 3 on Cephalexin for Strep and feel the need to lock myself in a closet. I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired. Misery loves company so just know others are sharing in your 'fun.'

Ugh. I hope you all are better soon! One of my girls just had the chicken pox, so we were totally out of circulation for a while too.
