Sick of being sick

I've been sick all winter long, and now it is Spring and I am sick again. We have had more colds, flus, coughs and sore throats go through this house than I could ever imagine. Maybe its because Anna started preschool, or because the twins are in nursery, or because we have to get used to the California germs.

Every time we go through a sickness I try to wash all of the sheets more, wash everyone's hands more, and spray Lysol a whole bunch. I think after this round, we are all going to start taking vitamins. Maybe even some of those herbs everyone says keep you healthy.

So, what do you do to keep your family healthy? I need some tips because I feel like a horrible mother - we've been sick for months!!

I hope you feel better. My husband has been fighting something since the beginning of April (possibly just allergies) and it's miserable. I have been well, though. We take vitamins and fish oil (from Costco, has less mercury than other brands). Good luck! How was Easter? We never got together.

I think there are many factors:

1. How many people are in the home to expose everyone.
2. Going to school and church.
3. Time of year.
4. Run down health.
5. Shopping cart handles. (yuck)

And last but not least our family habit of rubbing our eyes when tired. Touching your face with germs on your hands is not a good thing but it feels so good. :)

Love, Mom

I think taking vitamins helps but also eating lots of fruits and veggies and exercise. But who really knows?
