Oh. Em. Gee. I am near death.
The pool was very, very hot and steamy today.
Do you know what happens when a congested person spends an hour sitting in a room full of hot steam??
It’s so embarrassing. Hacking up a lung, nose pouring snot, kids hanging on me.
Sorry, I’m here spreading germs relentlessly. Stay back, stay back!! I have no choice. Believe me, I’d rather be at home laying in bed crying. Mama doesn’t get to lay in bed while sick for a week.
People seem to think that I am a daycare.
THESE KIDS ARE ALL MINE, ACTUALLY, THANKS. AND THEY GAVE ME THESE GERMS.
Today was the last day of swimming lessons for Rosie and Ada. It was all fun until I caught the summer cold that seems to be going around everywhere in America. (Per Facebook complaints…)
Dang adorable children and their booger eating, germ carrying fingers. Normally I am insane over disinfecting my hands after being in public, but I think I’ve been taking too much Zoloft because I haven’t been panicking over it. Look what happens! hack hack
I don’t think I’ve even been wiping off the cart at the grocery store lately…oh dear!
I have discovered that Wet Ones wipes work better than germ-x gel. When I have the kids use the wipes every time we get in the car then they rarely get sick. Germ-x, they still get sick.
See, I know some germs are good for the immune system…but I don’t have much help, and it sucks to be deathly ill or to struggle with sick kids all alone. It takes a long time for germs to go all the way through our family too. We’ll be knocked out for a month. We’ll miss homeschool co-op for a month because it’s one day a week and a kid will be sick each week. So I shamelessly make them wipe their hands and tell them not to put their fingers in their mouths and noses. I hate being sick. Hate it!
