Recycled Air

After working in an office for 4 years you'd think I'd be used to cold and flu season. Used to one person coming to work sick (and yes, many times it was me) and spreading their germy love all over the office. Ugh. But it was never as bad as it is now.

At school, we are all closed in together. And we all sit really close to each other. We share everything, including illness. One person gets it, then the next. And then the next before it just works it's way down the line. It's like survival of the fittest, and only the strongest survive. Unfortunately that is not me. Perhaps it's due to my steady diet of junk food and diet coke? Or my complete lack of in activity. I do take a vitamin. That doesn't counteract all the bad stuff? Hmm... either way I'm sick. Again.

I've never been sick so often in my life as I have been this past winter, and now summer. I'm sure having Brynlee in day care and bringing home all sorts of goodies does not help. But here we go. Unfortunately for me in recent years every time I get sick it turns into a sinus infection. I probably have some giant brain tumor or something blocking my sinus passage. Either way, I'm usually not better without a trip to the Dr in which some sort of antibiotic is prescribed.

It's not a ton of fun. In this case I hope Brynlee doesn't get it. The only thing worse than being sick is your baby being sick right along with you!

Ny Quil, Day Quil, sinus rinse and kleenex here I come! :(

I'd blame daycare and nursery. Charlotte would always be fine here at home but as soon as she went to nursery she'd pick up something. I think I'm finally getting over my thing which I'm pretty sure was a sinus infection. I swear that's all I get anymore. And my allergies are so not helping. Boo to being sick!
