Oink Oink


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!!

It has gotten over the top at school. Honestly, the media is not helping. Then you have people who begin to panic and set everyone else off. I seriously think people need to use their heads like you are and take *reasonable* precautions! I wish more people were like you!

H1N1 does seem to be everywhere! I have gotten tons of emails from people apologizing for not responding sooner but they had the H1N1 flu!

I think I am just going to stop going outside all together!

@Sara - I agree, this whole thing is just so out of control!

@Sophia's Mom - lol...maybe we should all just lock ourselves in our homes & not associate with the outside world until the threat is over :)

@CanadianMama - Thanks...glad you stopped by!
