Hini Weenie

Today I was talking with a friend and she said, "You know, this flu thing is completely out of the blue. I wish they had said something on the news!"
Which leads me to my post for today:
I've turned into a bit of a germo-phobe in the last couple of weeks.
I DON'T WANT TO CATCH THE FLU!!!
And, apparently if I go to HudWis or River Falls, I will catch the flu. No offense, guys, but it seems like everyone on that side of the river is sick!
When I tell people this, they say, "Oh, yeah...you don't want to risk it with the pregnancy."
Yeah, yeah...that's it.
Actually, it's a completely selfish act of self-preservation: after the first 16 weeks of my pregnancy I learned that caring for a toddler when you feel like you-know-what (and I'm not talking about Lord Voldemort) is the worst.
So, we'll come back to HudWis when I stop seeing FB status updates that say things like, "Sooooo sick." "Got dressed today." and "Lord, just take me now."

p.s. WASH YOUR HANDS!

sounds to me like the smart thing would be to make e-friends with a family in hudson so when it comes to a home near you, you can scamper there and hang out in an immune haven til it's all gone :) bad germs suck. hope you have a flu-free fall! (and winter - but that didn't go with the alliteration thing. whoa - i think i went overboard - even for me.) bye now.)

I will miss you here on the river. Even though I'm on the MN side, germs found me anyway.

P.S. I licked my computer screen right before I sent this to you.

Go ahead, be selfish. I've been feverish for two days and it royally sucks. I'm just glad I didn't get a bad virus. I feel guilty for going to work when I thought I might be getting sick. I hope I didn't spread it to anyone. Good thing I wash and Purell my hand 20 times a day at work!
