Washing my hands . . . again
It's begun. We've officially been in school long enough for the young ones (and adults, too) to start staying home sick. The wee folk have been at school for 5 fewer days than everyone else, but I'm sure in no time at all we'll make up for that lost time. I noticed a few with red eyes today, too. Over the years, I've had my share of conjunctivitis thanks to all the exposure. I tell myself at the beginning of each day, "you will not touch your face until the wee folk are gone and your hands are scrubbed". Doesn't always work--so many things we do without thinking.
And now that I'm reminded, I really need to drive across town and get my flu shot. I checked the clinic's site for information on shots, but didn't spot anything new. Guess I better ring them up. In the meantime, I should remember to cough and sneeze into my sleeve AND get myself some of these cool sleeves. I wonder if they come in my size?
