If you own stock in Lysol or Clorox...

I just made your day.

We have been sick to some degree or another for FOUR WEEKS. Every one of us. Sniffling, coughing, sore throats, head and body aches, and then throw in some random vomiting just for fun and you've pretty much got a picture of what life has been like at my house.

Now normally I don't use anything with lots of chemicals. Simple Green, a mild glass cleaner, and a vinegar solution is usually the extent of what I am comfortable using. But today I was on a mission. I wanted every germ within a 6 mile radius of me either dead, or out of their mind with fear.

So I opened every window in my house, and then went to the local Stuff Mart. I then beelined it to the cleaning supply aisle and proceeded to throw anything that said 'disinfectant' or 'anti' anything on its label into my cart. I don't even want to tell you how much I spent but let's just say that a presidential candidate probably could have campaigned for at least a week or two on it. Luckily, I think all the major candidates are dipwads, so no big loss there.

As of tonight, pretty much every surface in my house has been sprayed, soaked, wiped, scrubbed, and otherwise pummeled into what I hope is a germ-free surrender.

And if you do have stock in Lysol or Clorox...you're welcome.

I hope that it works!! We finally broke free of the constant cold from heck. It is nice to not have to check for gobs of snot every time a child sneezes. My four year old is now in the habit of asking me to wipe his nose after every sneeze.

I could have wrote your post word for word! I did the same thing yesterday and even thought that spraying the kids down in Lysol might be an okay idea!!! :) The bad part is Nate finally caught it after I did so it was hard to avoid and he went back on oxygen for 2 days because he was throwing up bile and aspirated it again. UGH...will this trial ever end? Or at least be easy on us?

Sending get well prayers your way!

Kim -who wants to run away... wanna come with me?

This is what I NEED to do, but I haven't yet found the energy. I waste all of it on coughing!
