This cold and flu season has been horrible for my household! My daughter has had the flu, my husband and I have had a cold/sinus infection twice, an my son has had two ear infections and upper respiratory infections. All since Christmas. Anyone else staying sick all the time?
Gotta get those germs out of the house.
I'm not usually the type to go crazy with disinfecting. I generally believe that germs are good for us--they help build a stronger immune system....BUT, after the flu went through my house twice, then I had bronchitis and laryngitis--I decided enough was enough. I cleaned and disinfected my whole house. We haven't been sick since...and hopefully it stays that way.

Just got over... me and DH had them twice and managed to control germs before it got DS second time.... I did sanitise the switch bords, door handles twice a day. As we co-sleep I kept on changing bedding every day to stop germs spredding... got luky and managed to get them out the house...
Wish you and family a speedy recovery.

Where are you located?
If it's warm enough (I ask, since we're in Texas and it IS warm enough here), you should try opening up the windows and getting some fresh air in the house! It'll definitely help!! Also, have you changed the air filter in your unit? It helps! And try dusting a bit more!!
Then, the obvious with Lysol :)

We've been sick for about a month now. A stomach bug, the flu, and a number of colds. We all have this kind of leftover cough now that I really want to break up.
