It’s the middle of the day, you’ve been cleaning all morning and your phone rings. You have high hopes that it’s your hubby calling to invite you to eat lunch with him but you turn your phone over and it’s the school’s phone number. You answer it and it’s the nurse telling you your child is sick. Crap, you have a hair appointment tomorrow that you have been so excited about (your roots are about three inches too long) and then dinner with your girl friends that you haven’t seen in 18 days because well life is crazy.
CANCEL IT! All of it. It’s not worth sharing your germs with others. Think of it as extra snuggles with your children!!! And for Pete’s sake keep your kid home from school until they are at least 24 hours free of symptoms. I say this in the kindest way possible. I know some people don’t have or have never dealt with a chronic illness but a little cold, flu, etc. can be detrimental to those who have other health issues. Please be considerate of others and let’s all try to be a little better about this!!! Praying this scary flu is over soon and that you all stay healthy!
P.S. wash your hands often!!!!
