I never knew true pain until I got a staph infection in my thigh.  I am on day 2 of antibiotics, but every single step is still excruciating pain. I’m no wimp when it comes to dealing with pain, but this has had me near tears.  It came on so suddenly, within just a few days it had spread throughout my leg and was causing a fever.

Listen to your mothers! Wash those cuts out with hydrogen peroxide and keep them clean!


Happy Appreciation Day

February 14, 2010

I think the dreaded Valentines Day holiday should be modernized and re-named Appreciation Day.  Valentines Day tends to have an exclusionary aspect to it, whereas Appreciation Day is a day everyone can participate in. So share your appreciation today with those in your life who brighten your day, have made you smile or who you love.

I appreciate YOU guys, my family, Ginger and anyone who brings me Godiva chocolate covered strawberries. 😉
