  • I have no idea what is going around this time of year. The flu could be going around, I hope not cuz I hate it when the kids get sick since I'm a SAHM and I'm the one that takes care of them most of the time.

  • Hand foot and mouth disease is popular at this time of year... and so is Fifths. Otherwise, summer colds are pretty ordinary, and the flu is pretty uncommon. Oh... and it's just past the high point of chicken pox season in most of North America.

    50 years ago, this week would be the onset of polio season. Mmm... paralysis....
