Sanity is hard enough to maintain as it is without having to worry about germ exposure. Glad it's behind you.

After the year I've had so far with various viruses and infections, and Dr. visit bills that rival the national debt, I've decided to sign up for a mercury I.V. drip, and, just where can you purchase anti-bacterial rinse in industrial sized containers? I've had it with the nambi-pambi little bottles that sit next to the zinc. Anyway, glad everyone is doing well down South, congratulate the hubbie for avoiding the bug one more time, hope his luck holds.

Earlier this year I had a huge debate with my sister when I heard her tell her daughter not to touch the knob to a restroom door.
I gave her a speech how she shouldn't encourage that behavior in her child because she can get ocd.
That was before Mersa hit our school district and now I find myself becoming my sister, i have lysol wipes all over the house, lysol spray, and even the new lysol anywhere. My children are equipped with antibacterial lotion and I am more aware of the germs lurking in places I would have never thought. I hate that someone awakened me to this because now I can see how easily OCD happens
OUr house just got over the flu and we all had the shot. So, it strikes anyway.

Glad you guys escaped the dreaded flu bug. We get Riley vaccinated because with her cochlear implants she's at high risk of developing bacterial meningitis if she were to get an ear infection as a result of the flu. So far so good.

I'm probably way too lax about the sanitizers; though, I do make her scrub up after she's been in the gym day care.

Isn't it nice to know that all the insane Mom's out there are really sorta sane after all?

We don't do the flu shot, as the one year we got it EVERYONE in the family got the flu. So far, we've been lucky every year since.

Glad to hear you missed it too.

I tend to take the head-in-the-sand approach myself. Some winters we have been sick constantly, some not at all; and it doesn't seem to make a difference what I do about it. If there's a germ out there with your number on it, it's gonna find you.

I am somewhere in between the two. I wish I could share your more laid back attitude, but I think I am a little more of a freak. Oh well. However, we never get flu shots. It has nothing to do with a particular stance on all vaccines, I just have never felt they were necessary. Probably because the only year I ever got one, I was sicker than any other year ever!
