If You’re Sick, STAY HOME!

I don’t consider myself a germaphobe. I believe the right amount of germs helps build a strong immune system (blah, blah, blah). I also believe I have a job to go to and who wants a sick kid or sick husband? I am out on that. With the flu going around like crazy, I find […]
