It’s been a while…

… since my last blog, but I have a legit excuse – cold and flu season. Kaia and I have been trading off illnesses for the last month and it’s exhausting! It really does make you realize what is important in life (health, happiness, family & friends) when you are struggling to keep it all together. And you learn quickly what can wait – like vacuuming and mopping the floors! It has also made me realize how important it is to eat right, sleep well and take care of myself and Kaia. Getting run down and stressed out at work makes it so easy for a little cold to totally wipe me out and knock me on my butt!

So I’m working on lots of Vitamin C to boost my immunity and energy and some vitamins to help stay on top of what I might be missing. I’m trying the same for Kaia… but it is a challenge when she’s a bit of a small eater. Yes, I know… Karma is a bitch and I’m getting pay back for being such a picky eater myself!

I’m working on the natural remedies to take care of us… ‘cause I’ll be honest that the other prevention out there that is all over the news scares me a bit. There is SO MUCH hype with the H1N1 pandemic and the vaccine… I really don’t know who or what to trust. As much as we like to think that we in North America have it made because information and “the truth” is at our finger tips with the internet and the freedom of the press… it feels to me more like a crazy amount of fear mongering and propaganda. Of course mix that in with just the right amount of protesters and freedom fighters that are ready to accuse the government of anything and everything. Sure… the truth is out there… you just have to wade through pages and pages of information to decide what to you is indeed the truth.
