are you ready?

are you all ready if the swine flu got worse and they closed down stores? if you are what all have you stocked up on and what did you buy to be ready? just curious. i know i am stocking up on food and as soon as i get extra money i will buy more toilet paper soap and all that we would need. its just to be safe then sorry. i mean the flu is going and its hitting more people everyday. its a scare out there with all this. im more on my kids to hand wash and though you know how kids are i put hand sanitizer in every room. and i am going to buy more vinegar (it does alot of good)

  • Why vinegar? - just curious

  • Breathe, mama! Take a step back. :) It's good to be prepared for any situation, but hand sanitzer in every room really isnt necessary. As long as you teach your kids to wash their hands often with soap and water (maybe teach then to sing the birthday song in their head to know how long to do that), and any sneezing or coughing needs to be done in a tissue or in their elbow (least place of contact with others) and you feed them nourishing meals and they get good sleep, it should be fine. As for stocking up, I think having a week or two extra meals or supplies is fine for any time. After all, you never know when something is going to happen.

  • paranoid much? That all just sounds odd.

  • You are a bit paranoid. Do you realize that the normal flu kills more people a year than the swine flu? Hate to say it, but if you or someone else is going to get the swine flu or anything else for that matter, nothing you can do is going to stop it. Chill.
