    I can personally attest to the healing medicinal qualities of margaritas after many, many, MANY lab trials. Particularly when consumed in a controlled pool-floaty setting.

    I had about a 5-6 week cold, cough, sinus infection (no flu shot), DH has been pretty healthy (no flu shot), DS just had a few days with a stomach bug (flu shot). Hoping that is it for the winter!

    And they say water and alcohol don't mix

    Last week we had the craps here, and I don't mean the sort you play at the casino

    Got a flu shot in September 2015 in anticipation of our daughter being born in October.

    February 10-11, I had the flu. February 12-13 I had a sinus infection. Feb 13-17 I had an ear infection. It's now February 26th and I'd say my hearing is back to about 90%. Unfortunately, I've now got a sore throat because I've still got post nasal drip dating back to the flu.

    Moral of this story? Sell the house and move to Aruba.

    Wife went to the doctor today at 3, she's got a sinus infection.

    I'm going back today at 630, I've got a sinus infection (I'd be stunned if I don't).

    And the beat goes on. I've been sick since 2/10 with some real heavy duty things. She's been sick since 2/7 with lighter things.

    At work they all are having the triple P's...
    pee, poop, and puke... yuck. Lucky for me it skipped me (but last yr had it for 3 days..)
    Sinus crap going around too... again it skipped me.
    Been faithfully taking my vitamins.. every day.
    Hand washing is the #1 prevention of spreading germs..
    Even wipe the exercise equipment handles and etc. before using them at PT...
    This girl refuses to get sick...
