Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


It finally caught up with me

I have been so pleased to have had the one house in all of North Texas not to come down with some sort of crud. Ok, we've all had allergies and the snot stuff. But, none of us have had the flu or the icks that have been landing everyone on their butts.

Until today. I don't have a fever, but neck aches, my face feels like I'm feverish. I'm cold. I just dry heaved into the toilet. Thankfully, the corn chex cereal must be digested enough not to be tossed back up. My baked potato in the toaster oven is ready, but I just don't know if I can bring myself to eat it.

I want to climb into bed and forget the world, but I have two stories due yesterday. I sort of need to write 'em. Then, I have to pick up kids, feed them and deliver one to basketball practice tonight. Then, I'm going back to bed. Maybe. Hopefully.

    I'm sorry to hear you've come down with the flu like symptoms! As a reminder to your readers, vaccination is the single best way to protect yourself and people you love from influenza. If you come down with the flu, there are still things you can do such as taking antiviral drugs if your doctor says you need them. To protect others from the flu, take preventive actions including frequent hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes. For more information from CDC on influenza and how to protect against it or keep from spreading it, visit CDC's

    All good information. I'm the only one in my family who DIDN'T get the flu shot this year. *sigh* All three of the kids did, as did my husband. I don't think I'll gamble again next year!!!

    I'm guessing since we haven't heard from you, you're still sick. The pukes hit HARD here last week. So far we've avoided it, but I'm watching the masses fall around me. It's like a bad sci fi movie...
    Hope you feel better soon!

    If the damned weather would just stay at either warm or cold, we'd be fine.
