Today's maps

I love maps. I'm going to keep checking on the national flu map this spring and waiting for the day it turns all green. Since my preemie girls are still extremely small for their age and haven't been exposed to many bugs, and suffered miserably from their last round of colds, we don't want to take them to the YMCA day care until flu season is over. Even if it is free. Call me overprotective, tending sick kids for two weeks straight is a lot tougher than one swim workout! The last time that they both got sick they didn't even touch any other kids, they just climbed on the baby rides at the mall and that did them in, one after the other.

At least we're not underneath the purple stuff! Or worse yet, the blue or yellow stuff!!

Hi Nancy, When I meant "resume" in my post, I was referring to my race resume, which I update for myself and in attempts(feeble that they have been!) to get sponsorship! :-)

As you know, Mighty Mo was quarantined on doctors orders from being around school kids until Feb. (end of flu season).

You are so right to be protective.

Ha. See that nice brown patch up in Canada, just above Montana? That's where I am - dry dry dry...

Your kiddos will deal with enough when they get older. You're doing well to protect them now!
