    Staying Well......in a germ filled world

    I have 3 sets of friends in Aruba right now.
    A total of 14 people.
    Of the 14, 4 are sick with head colds or gi upset.

    It is bad enough being sick at home.
    It is worse being sick on vacation :
    Hand washing is so important.

    You will regret having your Aruba vacation ruined by getting sick when you could take a a simple preventive action by HAND WASHING.
    Head Cold, flu, GI upsets can be prevented .......hand washing helps.
    Cough into your elbow.
    Avoid hand shaking.
    Wipe down hard surfaces using Clorox wipes:
    Door knobs and handles
    Toilet flush handles
    Faucet handles.
    Bars..(the actual bar)
    Shopping cart handles
    Casinos......everything there
    Light switches.
    Do not let the toilet become your new best friend in Aruba.

    Wear a mask on the plane and wipe everything down there too!
    ​In a world where you can be anything, be kind!

    People are sick everywhere right now. I think we have 9 teachers out today "sick" which is over 10% of our staff.

    That's exactly why you haven't seen me on the forum since before the holidays! Day after Christmas, I came down with a bad head cold. Not really a big deal, right? Except it then morphed into a bad case of bronchitis -almost walking -pneumonia. It's been a miserable start to 2020. Can really only say it was this weekend i felt like myself again. And the cough is lingering. So a very belated happy New year to everyone!! ☺

    Feel better. You have 342 days left to turn this year around and I hope it happens quickly for you. A trip to Aruba may be just what the doctor ordered.

    I hope you will feel better soon. This has been a terrible start to the New Year.

    Well, I took care of that on Tuesday! Booked a week at Manchebo Sept. 3-10. I was going to be frugal this year and maybe just go to Cape Cod, but I need our Happy Island!! Gotta get my trip ticker going...
