This is how I feel we all need to be approaching this whole (dare I say because I live on a hog farm) swine flu, which has now been labeled the H1N1 virus. It just seems like the media is really freaking everyone out. We all just need to be smart and do all the things we SHOULD be doing anyway to prevent illness. I'm not one that usually expresses my opinion to often as not to offend anyone, but I really feel that maybe everyone needs to take a deep breath and as my boys would say, chillax. I think maybe I will be watching less of the news media too. I have prayed and will continue to pray for the people who have this flu and for my family and friends to remain healthy and then I will just carry on!

I was wondering what you and Tork had to say about this...especially Tork! Ira's school sent home an announcement from Public Health today stating that someone in our county has it and quite a few parents began stock-piling bottled water and medicine today!

Ditto, Ditto, DITTO!

Chillax is the PERFECT word!

My prayers are with those who *could suffer from it, and who are suffering from it - as my prayers are with ALL who have the flu.

Love you, Farm Girl!

We have just continued to pray for those that have it and really just try to be smart. Wash our hands etc. This is just one more thing in life that I am not in control of...but I believe in a God that is!

I agree. Not much more we can do than pray and keep doing the regular things we do to keep healthy. :)

Oh my, I was watching the news last night and got all flustered about this, and I agree Tricia, we just need to do what WE SHOULD be doing and relax...I never watch the news, why did I have to to last night? thanks for reminding me to keep calm and relax!
