    CVS has their flu shot clinic going again. Already went for the shot. Seems to work every year so I am happy about that. Also if you have medicare it is free, which is even better. Realize not everyone gets a flu shot, just wanted to get it out there in case someone wants to.

    Guess that was something else those cranky shoppers gave me. I've been down since Monday. Feeling a little better today but still weak as water. My son and daughter have it now. Its awful. It just completely drains a person.

    Just a reminder that CVS and Walgreens and probably other places are giving out flu shots. I have medicare and it was completely covered at CVS.

    Just a reminder. CVS is offering flu shots and I think Walgreens has started theirs. You might want to see when they have them near you.

    I just wiped down my desk because a co-worker started sniffling... I take public transportation and live in a major metro area so I'm trying to be as safe as possible. But I'm not a fanatic about washing my hands a lot or antibacterial products. Someone gave me a tip once: don't touch your...

    My daughter has been invited to a slumber party on Friday night. There will likely be 10 to 12 girls there. In the back of my mind I am wondering if I should keep her home due to all the swine flu going around. Does that sound crazy?
