Seriously now

I am going to seriously lose it. I'm not joking. Someone has been sick in our house every day since at least Thanksgiving. Ian's finally home, but now Silvi has her fourth bout with a fever. And this morning I woke up with one.

What do we do?! Leave all the windows open and hope the Arctic air will kill whatever is living in our home?! Spray the place with ammonia!? Wear SARS protective gear all day?!

I'm about ready to check into a hotel for a the rest of this blasted winter.

I never understood the term "Cabin Fever" until I experienced it, my second winter in CT. All I can say is that surely Spring will come.
Yuck.

Tom, this is what it means to be a parent--you get sick with the kids. This phase lasts until about the fifth grade when everyone finally gets some immunity to all the family germs. Sorry, that's just the way it is-- been there, experienced that.

I totally feel you. Although our virus-laden season hasn't been as terrible as yours, I'm about ready to put on the biohazard suits over here, too.

I know it doesn't ease your pain but we have been in the same situation for almost three months. Wil just finished his third round of a 20 day antibiotic and the rest of us have had some variation of cold/sinus/upper respiratory congestion since mid-Oct. blech! I hope you guys can catch a break soon!

We've all been sick since then too. I think there is a LOT going around sorry to say. I DID just hear on NPR the other day that the flu and cold virus THRIVE in cold air. So don't open the windows. Weird, eh?
