So I wrote in 2009 about how swine flu had turned me into this guy. Its true I was pretty paranoid. But it was nothing compared to how I've been in our own house this week. Around my birthday last weekend the stomach virus hit and literally everyone around me...except me...ended up getting it. My family thought it was hysterical that I walked around the house for a couple days with a surgical mask on and antibacterial hand gel in my back pocket. And when it came time to touch any dirty laundry I used rubber gloves. Seriously....I witnessed how bad this stomach virus was and I had no intention of getting it. We won't even get into how much laundry has been done this week. Anything that is made of cloth has been through the longest wash cycle possible.
Lucky me the only thing I caught this week was a cold. Which I will gladly take over the plague that has everyone dropping like flies.
It seems to hit at night so I can admit that each night this week before bed I've gotten nervous. When Lucy wakes me up in the morning I realize I made it through another night without puking its like the grandest thing! Haha. I inherited a little phobia of throwing up. My dad is the exact same way.
One good thing that has come from this is that instead celebrating my birthday, Valentine's Day and G.I. Joe's birthday all on 1 separate day each we have spread things out! No one has had the strength to make a whole day of celebrating so we're following through with our plans little by little. Maybe by Easter we'll be done ;)
I can't wait to post pictures soon! But staring at this computer for this long has been quite enough for now. I'll be back after my head bursts and I can pull it together again.
Anyone else out there turn into this much of a germ-a-phobe during flu season?
I wasn't this bad until I had Lucy.
If she gets sick my heart breaks.
Then if I get sick I hate not being able to give her my 100%.
