Nope....definitely NOT a germaphobe.....with two (now grown) boys that just wasn't a possibility in my house....lol

Studies have shown that the more a person is exposed to dirt & germs, the healthier they will be. Those who use germ killing products to excess are actually doing the opposite, by creating such a sterile environment that their bodies never gain a strong immunity to the world around them.

The same study showed that the more children their were in a family the better immunity the children ended up having as grown ups...that only children tended to be the least healthy as adults, one thing noted was a much higher asthma rate than their multi-sibling counter parts, and a tendency to have more skin afflictions as well.

It all goes to show that a little dirt & germs is actually healthier for you in the long run....I know both of my boys are far healthier than many of their counter parts who had germaphobe mothers....I cant remember the last time either of them was sick.

I like things to be clean and tidy around me, but being a realistic mom I gave up a lot of that control.

We didn't freak out over everything the kids touched or ate unless it was truly into the gross territory. I let them play in the dirt and swim jump in the creek.

No one has asthma or a food allergy here and overall we're quite a healthy bunch.

I don't consider myself a germaphobe. I use hand sanitizer on shopping carts and on doctors offices but at home it's just soap and water through out the day. I was a germaphobe with my firsy two kids and they were always sick despite sanitizing everything! Now I just try to use common sense. I have family that are totally incapacitated by their fear of germs: they won't sleep in hotel beds or anything. After watching a movie like "contagion" I will have the fight the urge to become one but I get over it. LOL

NO on cell phone in just about any public place....especially restaurants. If I am in a store checking out, filling up at the gas station, grocery shopping....anything where I am interacting with another person....I ignore or turn off my cell phone. When in a restaurant I ALWAYS turn the phone off.

I find it extremely rude to be forced to listen to those, often louder than normal, conversations of those around me on a cell phone.

I find I cant stand in a line or shop without being able to tell you the whole life story of those around me by the time I leave the area....

What's for dinner
Who's sick in your house
How lousy your boss is
What time you are picking up the kids
How bad the economy is

The list goes on and on.....frankly I don't care about your personal life, wait until you are in your car or better yet, at home to have these conversations.....at the very least wait until you're outside rather than annoy those around you.

Cell phone are great, when used politely, otherwise they are a major annoyance....

Valentines was on a no budget affair this year....hubby made a double layer strawberry cake with fudge frosting and a cream cheese center...I made a lovely dinner of fresh veggies and fish (everyone in my family adores fish of any kind) it was Alaskan Pollock fish, sauteed in butter, olive oil, garlic and onions....super tender & yummy. by the end of the night we were all happy and full :)

All of the above was either in the fridge, freezer or cupboard....no expense necessary. With the economy the way it is right now, homemade is the best made (and much cheaper too)

A Happy Valentines Day was enjoyed by one and all...

Him....music? Yes, yes, and yes....any and all, with a heavy fondness for the 70's & 80's....and the rat pack era.

With two young men & a husband who all live and breath music in my house, I get to enjoy so many different types I cant really choose a favorite, because as soon as I do, another new favorite comes along.
