It's Time to Change the Toothbrushes

I feel like just about every other post that I leave either here or on Facebook reads, "We're sick again. We're sick again. We're sick AGAIN!"

Most recently it was me and my hubby. Yesterday we were both knocked down with a sucker punch from the stomach virus that we didn't see coming. There was a lot of laying down on the couch and hoping that the little two could basically fend for themselves. (Therefore, there was a lot of 'Go Diego Go' on the tv as well).

Blech! I'm so over these viruses!

Then my mom had a brilliant idea. I was talking to her on the phone and she asked me if we've changed our toothbrushes.

Um. No. I hadn't thought of that. But, it makes complete sense! It's time to change the toothbrushes!

Hopefully that along with opening the windows and airing out the house, washing our bedding (again), and liberal sprays of Lysol we might have a chance at conquering this sickness beast. And, prayer! Lots of lots of prayer for healing, wellness, and strength!

Anywho. I really do have other things to write about and I will be back to post.

P.S. - My menu on the sidebar has been sadly neglected. We just haven't felt like eating much and I haven't felt like preparing much. As a matter of fact, last night's dinner was the very fancy meal of a can of Campbell's family size Chicken Noodle soup. It almost felt like cheating by not acutally preparing something and just opening and heating a can of soup. So, here's my question. Do you have any favorite, easy meals that your family eats when folks are feeling under the weather? I'd love some ideas for this week. Thanks!


  1. Feel better soon, we have two sickies right now too. This winter has been a killer.

  2. So sorry you all have been sick...I hope spring breaks wellness to your house hold and time outside to play...now let me think, maybe we need to get new toothbrushes.

  3. Just a thought - if the toothbrushes are still good, just soak them in some Listerine to sanitize them. I do that every day to mine.

  4. Great idea for sure. Glad you are feeling better!
    For us a quick meal means frozen pizza and a bag of salad. Pretty bad..huh?

  5. Changing toothbrushes should help. I try to do this after I recover from every virus as my Mom told me that tip too! Mom's are pretty smart I find. :)

    We're all about convenience when sickness hits. This week I've been battling a virus and that means we've eaten a lot of chicken noodle soup, biscuits, rhubarb and deli chicken with assorted sides brought home by the husband. He's a saint! I make soup out of the chicken left overs so that's sort of homemade I guess. Hopefully next week we're back to normal.

    Just take care of yourselves!

  6. I saw this on another blog and I'm serious, within 2 days of changing toothbrushes, the only sicky left is the baby (who has no teeth)!
