Who knew...


All these years George Lucas was wrong, He and everyone else called this an ATAT now I find out from my 5 year old (and anyone who has a 5 year old will tell you they are never wrong about anything just ask them) that this is an ATET also I should have been cheering on Darth Vader because "he has cooler weapons"

As you can see we are having loads of fun in our self imposed quarantine, Yesterday morning little guy woke up with a fever of 104 (scary!) after rushing him to the doctor we are told that he does indeed have the H1N1 or Swine Flu. After a review of the symptoms we determined that I (who never has a fever for anything) that have been running a temp between 99 and 101 probably have it too. So we in everyone's best interest Little guy and I are in lock down until probably Monday. BIG FUN!

We always have the fun stuff going on here!

So for your info to help you stay healthy a few tips from my doc to me to you...
1 wash your hands often with lots of soap and hot water
2 this virus can live on a surface for 2 hours so use the wipes they have at the grocery store and wipe the cart before you use it.
3 don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth as much as possible.
4 if your sick stay home! You can spread this 24 hours before you show symptoms and up to 48 hours after the fever breaks and is gone.

the good news is while this spreads much easier than the normal flu it is 1/7th as deadly so if you are a normal healthy person and you get it you should really just feel mostly like you have a super nasty cold.

I hope you can all stay healthy and I made sure to spray this post with Lysol so you should be safe ;)

Poor them - but poor you too - when was the last time you left the house. Wishing everyone at your place a speedy recovery.

Hope you both are feeling much better. I had not even thought about the grocery carts at the stores, but I will be looking for those cloths to wipe them down.

Oh for crying out loud! I would never cheer for the Darth, lol, seriously, I hope you all recover without complications. What a tough time you are experiencing.

Sorry to hear your sick. Hope you feel better quick..

Maybe we should put the world int he hands of 5 year olds. I believe the world would be a lot better off. And yes, Darth had much cooler weapons.
