Cold’s Abound In These Parts. Unfortunately.

I’ve been patting myself on the back all winter (almost literally).

This has been the first winter where we’ve gone for almost the whole season as a family without something going around. Whether it’s a cold, the flu, a nasty virus, or even a bacterial infection, we always “catch” something, and it always takes a few weeks to work it’s way through everyone.

Totally inconvenient, if you know what I mean.  🙂

I should not have been so self congratulatory, however.

We’ve caught something, and it’s necessitated the first (and hopefully last) drug store run of the season.

Fever?  Check. {Ibuprofen}

Cough?    Check.  Check. {Those nasty coughs are being covered both orally and topically with Vick’s and Delsym!}

Wishing you all a HEALTHY, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Disclosure:  I think it’s provident that my role as a member of Vick’s VapoRub Blogger Brigade lends itself to this post, don’t you?

    Run to the drug store???? Don’t you have a guy that can just bring that stuff home with him? LOL.

    We’re STILL sick. Ella has bronchitis now and Zeke has a cold. Mind you, they already had the flu 3 weeks ago. I feel like I’ve been in my house for a month solid. Inconvenient? Totally. Ella went to church today wearing a surgical mask. The Doctor said she’d be contagious for 10 DAYS(even though she feels fine, just has a little cough)! I couldn’t stand it anymore.

    Hope you all get better QUICKLY.

    We’ve been hacking up our lungs for about two weeks now. Hope this crud flies through your house quickly. And, oh, how I love the smell of Vick’s!

    Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?

    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end
    or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
