New Week, More Emails

I am totally amazed at how many people feel that they need to go places (like banks, libraries, restaurants, etc) when they are ill. I understand when people go to the store, because they have to get things for their home....popsicles (sick kids and high fevers = popsicles), juices, liquids, sometimes even medications, but you really don't need to go out to other places. Stay home and sleep and rest! Really folks, when you go out and you are ill and you go places that you really don't need to go to (even taking your kid to these places) all you do is share your germs with others who are just trying to get things accomplished, borrow books (you can do that online), banking (a check can wait until you are healthy again or mail it in), restaurant (get simple foods like soup in a can). Why am I on this kick....simple, I got the flu (and so did my whole household) because someone decided that they needed to go to the library with their sick kid. Now, I have something new, my system had already been compromised (flu started my asthma) and I took my kids to the Credit Union to deposit monies into their accounts. Guess what, another person who decided that their banking business needed to be handled that day. So now, I am, again, ill! High fevers and all! I just hope I can kick this one and no one else gets it. We are all still dealing with the remnants of the flu (it started everyone's asthma). I just don't understand people who feel that they need to go out and do things when they are ill. If my family had not become ill and running high fevers and we hadn't run out of medication (more taking means going through faster), I wouldn't have felt the need to leave my nice comfy chair and venture into a store. I would have gladly stayed at home. Oh, well, I guess there will always be those who feel that they need to drop their sick kids at a day care because they need to be away from them. There will always be those who need to go out when they are ill.

As it is, I'll just be happy if I can clear more of the emails from my account. Even if it doesn't come close to my goal, a few a day is better than none.
