Pass the snot rag, please

The weekend was taken up repairing hair. From the looks of things, this week will be spent repairing immune systems. We´ve got a regular hospital going around here, starting with the youngest, who yesterday broke the record for highest fever ever in the Raising Five family (104.5), to the oldest, who´s had an on-and-off low grade fever the past few days (Hair-induced? We may never know).

The others are in various forms of low-grade fevers, sniffles, sore throats and tummy aches.

Of course I should thank them. They are trying to get it all over with before tons of company comes in next week for Thanksgiving. They are trying to prevent the Mother´s Day fiasco.

Gee, thanks, guys.

I needed to disinfect anyway, right? Starting with this keyboard...

Wow, at least they are all down at the same time, not spaced out over two weeks. :) I'll pray you all get better.
