Is it just me, or does it feel like the ominous H1N1 virus is popping up everywhere suddenly, slowly surrounding us, stalking us, creeping in until there is no where to escape?? Seriously, I’m starting to feel a little claustrophobic here. And of course if you listen to published reports (which, as we all know, are always correct & factual) it seems we are all positively doomed to face this evil monster! Just yesterday, I learned that my nephew, and my hairdresser’s brother & niece have been infected by the villainous swine! Add that to all the aunts, uncles, neighbor’s friend’s sister’s cousin twice removed I’ve heard about lately….EEEEKE! It’s enough to make anyone, especially a parent, go cuckoo for coco puffs!
Personally, all I want is to keep my family healthy. So, I’m trying to weed through all the crap and get to the facts all the while keeping a level head. H1N1 vaccine appointment for the peanut? Check. Lots of hand washing & anti-bacterial spray? Check. Making sure I keep things realistically in check while facing the fact that chances are good this virus will visit our house ? Check. Making a concerted effort to not let news reports of the impending apocalypse drive me to the brink of insanity? Check.
Oy, it’s not easy being a parent! Just needed to vent. Oh, and GO PHILLIES!!
I'm your not-so-typical SAHM to an amazing, brilliant little girl and wife to a pretty great guy who just happens to adore us! By sharing my (somewhat random) musings on this beautiful mess that is our life, I hope to take an honest look at the often crazy reality of being a mama/wife/girly girl/frugalista, all the while making sure I've got my lip gloss on & feeling fabulous! Please feel free to email me with any questions - thanks for stopping by!
