Swine Flu

I came across this today and laughed out loud. Perfect timing for the whole swine flu issue.

While my heart and prayers go out to the family who lost their baby (only reported US death) to the swine flu , I am also sick (pun intended) of the media making a bigger deal out of this than it needs to be. Hello, media...STOP trying to freak everyone out over this. Tons of people die each year from the regular flu. We all know the flu stinks. If you are sick, go to the doctor, otherwise the only extra precautions needed are wash your freakin' hands more often and IF you are sick, keep your bum at home. Problem solved. Tomorrow, I'll take on our current economic state. (just kidding, that would take more than one day.)

Sorry, to hop on the soapbox, but as of late, I feel like I cannot watch the news. I grow tired of all the gloom and doom.

Is any one else feeling the same way?

We just got word that our kids school has been closed for one week as of tomorrow. The whole district. LOVELY!

I agree, I can't watch the news right now either. It freaks me out too much!!

Yes!! I mean, it's scary, but, if you're healthy and you take care of yourself and take precautions, I think it'll be OK!

It is crazy! I can't believe that schools are closing and everyone is going crazy about it!
