The Flu Shot Doesn't Make You Invincible?

I cannot be the only one....who after receiving their flu shot had an inflated sense of invincibility to germs, after all, wasn't I injected with a live active super version of the flu? Even though the pamphlet that accompanies the inoculation doesn't actually say it protects against the common cold...it has to make you at least a little stronger to fight those pesky germs, right?…

Green Moms and Germs

During my many years of parenting, I have discovered there are many things I would prefer not to touch.  Some of these things are pretty obvious – various bodily fluids, “icky” things like frogs (maybe that’s just me) and anything that could potentially bite me.

During flu season (I recently learned there is no such thing as cold season), there are some “not so obvious” things that I would prefer not to touch as well.  These are those every-day items that we routinely touch without…

Things I've Learned This Week

** Your cabin fever's reached Code Red when you're jealous of the squirrels outside breathing in all that fresh, freezing cold air.

** Trying to work a crossword puzzle when you're tired just makes you feel stupid.  And tired.

** I've washed my hands so many times over the past few days that I may no longer have fingerprints.

that light at the end of the tunnel...it may be just a train

My GP said this to me this morning and it's not yet certain whether she is extremely insightful or some type of witch doctor that cursed me because the rest of the day so far has confirmed that the light everyone refers to at the end of the proverbial tunnel is in fact a train about to run us down.…

Be careful, the recent research finds that that action can cause sinusitis. Researcher also states that these habits can increase blood pressure in the brain.

Dr Owen Handley J and other infectious disease expert from University… Continue

No, really, I'm an idiot

The last day of school before winter break I had a little cold that lasted for three days. I thought it was allergies, set off from being inside a school. I’m either allergic to the cleaning chemicals or the dirty, recirculated air or memories planted deep in my subconscious. The allergies linger for three days. Whatever. I don’t think anything of it. I’m fine.



Winter break comes and my husband, Skye, gets “the cold” that was, for me, just allergies. Only he’s crabby, coughing,… Continue

Watching Fox AND not vaccinating?! Who am I?

Any of you who know me know I am not a big fan of Fox News or any news that gives me only one side of a story or argument. I also vaccinate my kids and believe most are designed to keep my own children healthy as well as those in my community. That being said, I am recommending you watch a video on Fox News about the risk of vaccinating your child against H1N1 and other vaccines in general. This Dr. has the same general viewpoint as I do and I found it refreshing.

Motherhood in Overdrive Part Deux

Continuation from yesterday's posting (see post immediately below this one): And Now . . . The Rest of the Story (RIP, Mr. Harvey)



I left the computer for (what was intended to be) a brief moment of comforting one of the twins while he was paying homage to the Great White Porcelin God. However, in the midst of rubbing his back and wiping his face as he hurled projectile masses of unknown constituents into the depths of clear blue waters, the phone rang. I let it go to voicemail,… Continue
