Sorry everyone. I spent the last few days out sick. I got bit by that stomach bug that’s been making the rounds. I’m not all the way through it yet, but I’m going to try to start getting back at it. I’ve got a few hundred messages that need my attention, so please give me a day or two to try to get through them. If you don’t hear from me by Wednesday, send another message my way just to be sure that your original email didn’t get bounced out due to a lack of space. Again, I’m sorry everyone. I’ll do my best to get back to the land of the living as soon as possible… now I’m going to log onto FB for the first time in days. I have a feeling it will be just as backed up as the inboxes. 😉
People have this notion that it’s cold and flu season during the Winter, because when we go out into the cold we put ourselves at risk. Not so. Germs don’t like the cold – that’s why a cold mist humidifier is WAY healthier than a warm mist one. Winter is cold season, because WE are like the viruses that plague us.
We don’t like the cold. We huddle together inside. We are in close confines, bunched together, all Winter long. Germs love this. It’s warm inside. We like it warm, and so do the viruses.
I have a bad cold, and it’s knocked me for a loop. But I have to admit, I’m glad I’m sick now – because I’d rather be sick now than during Yule and Christmas. This is why I didn’t post yesterday. I crashed pretty early. LOL
So here’s my survival tip (and yes, I’m taking my own advice). Knock out the virus by loading up on Echinacea and Vitamin C, stay hydrated, and get plenty of rest.
