You know you're sick when...

You will more than happily watch infomercials on day time television, and the slice-o-matic and shark navigator vacuum all start making complete sense!  Someone hand me the telephone...the first 100 callers get a free ah-bra or some such nonsense.

The flu season has well and truly started early in the Warren household this year! I think we're single handily keeping the local medical centre running. Last week alone, I saw the doctor four times, and Eme twice. This week it's Seth and Andrew's turn, with their second visits happening today. Think of all that bulk billing!!

Surprisingly, each of us have had completely different strains of the cold/flu virus.  I have been suffering from a chest infection sent straight from hell. I'm still on four antibiotics a day, ventolin, seretide, and panadol. I've tried nasal sprays, throat gargles, cough medicines, you name it. Thankfully I'm starting to feel a little more human, but the coughing, oh the coughing, continues.  If I was thinner, I think my abs would be ripped by now!

I am so thankful that my hubby is incredible at getting the kids ready for school, making dinners and ensuring the essential household stuff happens. I was literally confined to bed for a whole week, only venturing out at dinner time to eat and spend some time with the family.  I'm also very thankful for my mother-in-law for dropping over bowls of Nanna's chicken's like penicillin in a bowl! Andrew whipped up a massive pot of it last night good!! I'd give you the recipe, but then they'd have to kill me. lol.

Ironically, I'm heading off to meet the people from Bisolvon tomorrow where they'll be sharing tips for keeping your family well and to help safeguard them from impolite coughers this winter. Maybe they can use me as a bad example?

How's your family travelling heading into the flu season? Are you prepared?
