Calling in Dead

With two kidsters and one Hubster in school there is no way to avoid the inevitable. But I have actually avoided the inevitable for two months now. Each of them has gone through at least two, maybe three by now. My hands are raw from all the washing and hand sanitizer. But it finally wore me down. Yes, you guessed it, I'm sick. I couldn't even talk this morning when I got up. And don't think the kidsters didn't take advantage of that, let me tell you!

Before you ask, let's have a little conversation. What ever happened to just being good old sick? You know, go through a box of tissues (or two in my case), get the red under your nose, cough for a few days, hack up a little mucus (sorry for the graphics) and then you are on your merry way. But now, everything has changed. Forget about going to the store to buy some cold medicine. One cough and people go running from you or get that fear in their eyes like you just started the next plague. No, it's not swine flu! I'm not the epicenter of a national disaster! I'M JUST SICK! It happens you know.

Thanks, I feel better now knowing that you understand.

Ahh, I'm so sorry you feel horrible. Are you sure you're not the epicenter for some national illness? I could alert CNN and the White House for you. Or would you prefer I just bring you a big cuppa with lemon and honey and call it good? I hope you get better soon. (It's just plain safer that way, otherwise the kids start to take over and then all will be lost, grin, grin)

Aw, I'm sorry too that you feel crappy, I really hope you feel better soon! We've got a bunch of people home from work right now because they're sick. I personally have become addicted to hand sanitizer, which makes sense, because I sit at the check-out at a store, so I get all the germs on me from just about everybody that visits the store. Blech.
