It is, undoubtedly, still cold season–at least at our house. I can’t even seem to muster the energy to write (what I feel is) something that sounds remotely decent. For four weeks, we have had sick germs floating around our house. It started when “the boy next door” got sick…and made his entire family sick.
Before we knew it, Rapunzel was sick. Exactly a week later, so was Princess Anna. The next week, I was down and out. No sooner had I pseudo-recuperated from the stomach bug than I came down with a sore throat. By mid-week last week, Rapunzel and I both had strep throat, and she also had pinkeye. But that’s not all–at that same time, Prince Charming came down with the stomach bug!
Thinking the worst was over, we breathed a sigh of relief…until this morning, when Wendy came down with the stomach bug…and then Princess Anna was cranky, then hot, then in pain.
I don’t mean to complain, as I have recently been feeling very blessed in other areas. And we are very blessed that this is the worst of our problems. However, I picked up some Lysol at Rite Aid this evening. Cinderella sprayed every surface she could think of, I scrubbed the sinks, and on the task “menu” for tomorrow is disinfecting every surface I can find.
My struggle here is that my sister has gotten me thinking about more organic products, and now I worry about what I’m using. Next on my list: finding some great pinterest ideas for disinfecting our house. Keep an eye out: maybe I’ll find something good!
What’s your go-to disinfectant?
