Influenza & other stuff

It's here: winter and the flu. Two kids from daycare have been diagnosed as having the "official" influenza. There have been many high schoolers out as well with fevers, coughs, sore throats, etc. It sounds like it's lasting a long time. Let's hope those shots that the kids and I had really work! Thad opted out....he better not get sick either!

It sounds like my recent posted generated some thought. Imagine what life in the 1950s would have been like?!?! Women really had to put out the perception that life was great while being the perfect wife and mother. Thank goodness I can tell Thad how I really feel, go to Target without showering (although I usually run into students which stinks), and tell people if one of my kids had some rough behavior.

I am a firm believer in being honest about that stuff. A pet peeve of mine is people who make out their life to be perfect and always say life is GREAT! There is no perfect family. Kids act up & throw tantrums. Moms get irritated about stuff. Husbands and wives don't always get along. We all feel fat at some point. I happen to feel it 98% of the time. It's life, and it's allright to vent a little. So keep releasing girls!

You crack me up! What it would be like to be perfect... I'd think it would be very boring. I like my hectic & unorganized life.
