I'm doin' the happy dance! The CDC has told our head of school that we have to be closed for 14 days since we had a student test positive for the 2009 H1N1. I don't know what all this will mean for us in the long run, but right now I am happy as a pig in a mud puddle! We're supposed to return May 14th! No AP proctoring for me next week! WooHoo!
I kinda think this flu thing is creating a bigger panic than is necessary, but I do understand that we need to be careful. Some people never wash their hands (yuk!) and I've been around people that never cover their mouths or even turn their heads when coughing. I went to nursing school (never got to finish, drat) and that's where I learned the importance of good handwashing techniques. It really does make a difference in the control of some germs.
Since I was off yesterday I went for a haircut (just a trim) and today went to get an oil change in my car. It was so nice to leisurely get some things done during the day. I didn't have to wait even 5 minutes either day. In Houston you have to wait for everything if it's after the workday ends. And Saturday, well, you can just imagine it, can't ya?
Hooray, it's Friday! Hooray, all in my family are healthy! Please take care of yourself and your family during this high stress flu thing. Wash your hands and drink plenty of water!
