We r puny.
Strep throat among the ranks.
I took an antibiotic from the jar of emergency a.d.d. leftover pills from previous issues.
Well, don't you have those?
They give you a jar of 86 pills...
take three times a day for the next millennium
and who can always keep focused that long.
I woke up in the middle of the night
feeling better until some sort of
germaphobe anxiety attack crept
into my pea brain.
I could not go back to sleep
imagining all of those
nasty streptococcal bugs
having a party all over my house.
It was so disturbing that I got up
and put a few of my blankies in the wash.
Speaking of disturbing,
if you are brave look at this.

but beware because I regretted googling images of Strep Throat.
(I REPEAT DO NOT FOLLOW THE LINK)
You couldn't resist could you?
EEEEW I only glanced for one second before I made the link.
So I cranked open all of the windows as soon as I got outta bed.
Threw Milo under a pile of blankets
and gave him the remote.
Put on Elsa's snowboots and mittens,
And declared WAR ON STREP!
My new best friend Clorox
danced with me through the house,
and everybody got clean bedding.
Then we got our internal weapons
Our town just got a new pop machine at the hospital,
You just type in the
numbers for your prescription and
out drops your meds.
I have been there three days
in a row as there are so many subjects in my charge.
And yes,Mom, I got a real prescription for me too.
The people that work at the hospital are looking at me funny.
Thinking "oh there is that junkie with all of her snot nosed kids."
So hopefully we have
got this thing about whipped.
We are thawing out now with the afternoon sun shining through our closed windows and the heater blasting fresh clean air.
Hope those little streppies
have learned not to mess with me
or my babies.
