What is the name of your state? GA

Hey everybody! My chest cold from over the weekend has not gone away and I now sound like Darth Vader.

It doesn't hurt or anything, but I've made a dr. appt. for tomorrow (can't get one for today and it would be better financially to do it tomorrow anyway).

My job is going to be ticked. I left work Sat. night b/c I felt so awful, and called out Sunday. I told my supv. that I'd be going to a dr. if I didn't get better. was scheduled off Monday and Tuesday anyway, so I was hoping I'd start to feel better. But no....

Not that I mind not being at Large Retail Store, but I don't want to look like a deadbeat. I have a very strong work ethic, and I hate being out, but I can't go in sounding like this.

I have sick and vacation time available, but layoffs and budget cuts are running rampant in the company (despite the recent no-tax weekend in GA!).

Anyway...
Hope everyone is doing well. Sniff. Cough. Hack.

Talk to you later! Thanks for listening to me whine!

I have a salaried job and have been working 9 hour days to bank time for upcoming court days. I definately do not want to use my vacation days for court. I am not going to get sc***** out of them for him. God forbid I get sick.

Hope you are feeling better.:)

Here in GA

Here in GA it isn't mosquitoes we watch out for, but dead birds.

There were a bunch of dead birds around some suburbs of Atlanta last year that carried West Nile.

Pthalo, does that help?

My son is 3 and he's never had the flu shot because it's optional here in GA, but he's up to date on his other vaccines.

Does the flu shot help against West Nile?

His 3 pediatricians to date have never mentioned it, but if you've heard something, please pass it on!

By the way, we haven't changed peds. for the fun of it. Ped#1 misdiagnosed my son, eventually landing him in the hospital for pneumonia. So we got Ped #2. Husband's insurance changed in July and we picked a plan that had Ped2 on it, so we wouldn't have to change. But right after that, Ped2 announced he was no longer taking our insurance, so we recently moved to Ped3.

Thanks!

I'll be doing the PreK thing next year, when my son turns 4, and I'm NOT looking forward to it.

You're already braver than I am!
