What's new?

I've thought of some creative outlets for my magazine. Shop with..... Coffee break...and such. I need a few good writers...anyone interested? This is a non paying gig though...good for you to get your name out there. I expect anyone writing to proofread, and spell check articles before submission....I will do the same. Also I will be spotlighting a biz every issue such as Tupperware and the like. Any one interested in doing product reviews of different products?

This time of year

This time of year brings all kinds of sickness. I know from experience, my children and husband were sick this Christmas and New Years. My husband had the worst of it. If you choose to get the flu shot this year, I encourage you to do so. If not, below are signs and symptoms of the flu, not to be confused with the common cold. I believe my oldest, and hubby have really bad colds. Becca may have had a touch of the flu. While the biggest prevention is washing your hands, even with the best asceptic technique you can get sick. The best way to wash hands, is under warm water, and RUB your hands for least 5 mins. Wash them up to your wrists, and rinse well. You can choose to use a hand towel, or paper, just make sure you dry your hands well.


1.) Temperature over 100 degrees. It's important to drink lots of fluid to replenish fluids lost with temp. If you're on any kind of meds, consult your physician for further action. Some medications are diuretics, and you want to be communicating with your physicians when you are sick.

2) Headaches may be related to sinus problems due to a runny nose or other sinus problems. Some people may have general aches and pains associated with the flu. Queasy stomachs are also common.

These are just two symptoms to pay attention to. If you have persistent vomiting or just can't get well after being sick, go see your doctor. If you're on a roller coaster with your family and passing things back and forth...go see your doctor. If you're unsure of ANYTHING...go see your doctor. I know from experience, and not just because I'm a nurse. My family has been sick on and off since Thanksgiving with hubby having it the worst. What did they do? They went to see the doctor. Have a good night everyone. Have a very healthy New year.

Til next time.
