A bit early for the flu?

Really, I thought August was way too early for the flu (or whatever it is we have), but apparently not. Stay far, far away from my house unless you want to catch: pink eyes, sore throat, cough, runny nose, fever, aches all over, general grumpiness, etc etc etc. Oh, and did you know that when your son gets pink eye, you're actually supposed to take him into the doc and obtain antibiotic eye drops (torture devices?)? Silly me! The one time that I don't go running to the doc at the first sign of a runny nose, and there's actually something I can do to treat it? What was I thinking?! Apparently I wasn't, according to 3 different sets of neighbors. I swear when I was a kid we just had to buck it up and deal with it until it ran its course.

In other news, my weight seems to have leveled off at 137...not bad, but I'm still hoping to shave a bit more off. I'm really a very tiny person under all this skin, though I still maintain that I am 5'4". The scale at RFMC is clearly off by a quarter inch.

And with that I shall return to my bed where I can continue to cough up my lungs.

  1. your son is ADORABLE! Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog. We do have a lot in common! If you have good advice or hints, my email is portraits@chelsealietzimages.com

    Did you find the Zedonk photos? there are a couple on my blog! She is hilarious.

  2. Aww... Theo had pinkeye once and it was because I didn't spot an ear infection that then went beserk and infected his whole head. Oops!

    Hopefully now that you've had some sort of swine-flu-thing you'll be immune this winter! :)
