Some people are less likely to get it. If you are B or AB type blood, you're not exactly immune, but you are less likely to contract it and more likely to be asymptomatic if you do. Type O people are the most likely to get it.I have never personally used hand sanitizer nor have I ever contracted a norovirus. Now watch, I’ll come down with it tomorrow! Argh!
That's so interesting. I've read before about various blood types and susceptibility to some of the major diseases, but hadn't heard it's relation to norovirus. DH (O-) is quite susceptible to it ... when he gets it, he gets it BAD. Our first son who got married, a friend of his brought their sick preschooler to the wedding (in June) ... more people got sick the next week than people who didn't! (The mom didn't know it was a norovirus till afterwards.) DH got it so bad he passed out. Son who got married came down with it on their 2-day drive to their honeymoon destination. He was having to pull over at times to get sick. The weird thing is that I'm O+ and I don't often come down with norovirus. Not that time, either.Some people are less likely to get it.

My whole family came down with Norovirus after Thanksgiving, my niece brought it home from preschool. I didn't venture home this year so I missed out on the annual plague this year but a few years ago my nephew infected all of us and it was so miserable. There weren't enough bathrooms to deal with all of us. Hope you feel better soon.Norovirus. 2nd time its happened to me around Thanksgiving and this time, the only place ive been recently is Walmart. With so many people out buying last minute items for the holiday (And ahead of an approaching blizzard) I can imagine thats where I got it. Just woke up from my morning Coma and am soo tired, week.. and icky in "Other" ways.
I'd put a good old fashion Irish curse on whomever gave it to me but I have to believe they are already suffering enough..
I get migraines as well and I get the aura for 40 minutes to an hour before the pain kicks in it sounds like you have the aura a for the entire headache. For me the aura is the worst part of the headache so I can't imagine having it for an entire day I hope you feel better soonI have a Visual Migraine right now makes reading Very difficult for the next 1/2 hour. But I guess I w3ill take that over a regular migraine !
Funny story...I got a message one day from my youngest son's daycare saying they had a case of Roskilde disease. I had to do some googling to figure out what they were talking about because Roskilde is a city where they have, among other things, a large music festival. They were of course referring to the Norovirus. It would be like getting a notice of the SXSW stomach flu or the Burning Man malady. Hope you are all better!Norovirus.
Oh no! That sounds like Murphy’s law has taken hold. Hopefully the new year will be perfect!My husband and I are in the process of opening a coffee shop (well, mostly he is, I have a day job elsewhere). Anyhow, we've been at this with contract negotiations and contractors for almost a whole year and we were finally ready to hire people and open in a few weeks. Then, this morning, a water main broke in front of the shop and flooded the place so now the nice new floor is covered in mud and water and hopefully wont need to be replaced...and we are delayed at least another two weeks on top of the two weeks we originally planned.
So? What's the worse case scenario if you had done that?
Megan, dear heart, I don't mean to sound unsympathetic, but I'm worried about you taking care of you. You are in serious overload and heading for total burnout. And when that happens, you're no good to anyone, including yourself.
There are no easy answers. I suggest you take a Time Out. If you can't sit down and talk with your hubby about what you need from him then you might want to see someone on your own to help you get through this period. It's not going to last forever, but you could sure use some help getting through it.[/Q
That's a "control" issue on your part. Moms often feel they know what's best for the kiddos. We parents all go through that. But, as my dear hubby once said to me, "there's more than one way to skin a cat". If you can let go, let him do things his way, without judging his style of parenting, you will both be better off.
Try it. Give him notice that, as of Monday, you will no longer be taking the twins to day care. They need their Daddy to be there for them too.
And, geeze Louise, you're smart enough to know you don't need feedback when you're doing the very best you know how to do. You'll get plenty of feedback if you mess up, but I doubt you're that kind of employee. Sounds to me like you want a pat on the back for the good work you are doing. Be happy and give one to yourself. I know it's hard to go to work when your efforts aren't appreciated. Just let it go. If you're satisfied, that should be enough.

The water main break, while unfortunate and aggravating, did not do as much damage as we had initially thought. Yes, it will delay (that's the most aggravating part as we were in the home stretch prior to this event) but it shouldn't be a huge cost to us as we had originally thought. I really am lucky that my husband took/is taking care of the negotiating yesterday, because I don't have the mind for that.Uh....preschoolers are my specialty. Definitely did the right thing NOT leaving them unattended, when they know there isn't a woke/cognizant parent around - especially when they come in pairs! They know where the interesting, mysterious "dangerous" grow-up things are and a parent can count themselves lucky if they only paint each other in mom's lotion.
I don't know you Megan, and you didn't ask for my advice. But if you want to get life to dial down at bit; consider focusing on one thing you'd like improved first. That might give you some breathing space to gain some control and help you deal with the rest. Three year olds, especially if they're strongly "twinning", can be a huge challenge. (Your husband might even feel clueless how to work with them!)
ETA; wow, just saw you're trying to open a business and have water issues. So sorry to have so much more stress on your plate.
You need to move asap. If you are a renter and it is like this then the Ll doesn't care and it will NOT change.I live in an old house that is basically falling apart, but was flipped improperly the way @Lin19687 talked about on page 86. New coat of paint, new windows ect, but once moving in the problems are constant.
All sinks in the house drain slowly, the bathroom sink doesnt even have a drain, the refrigerator is broken, and all of the walls are bowing in...
But Today's new gripe is a doozey. This house was built in 1840 and uses an old fashioned oil heater. The tank of oil is a long antique cylinder laying on its side. The basement isnt perfectly flat and the side of the tank with the spout for oil to come out is at a 10° angle higher than the other. Our meter says we have 1/4 of a tank of oil, but all of the oil is sitting in tbe opposite side of the tank from the spout and our heat has turned off.
My boyfriend had the landlord's number in his phone that broke 2 weeks ago and I dont have it so in 7.5 hours he is going to go to the property management office and tell them we dont have heat. Cherry on top. For some reason that makes no sense to me the bedroom is connected to the central air system for the unit next door. That unit has been empty since july and was left with the a/c on high, so while the rest of the house is already freezing the bedroom has a/c blasting!
My chemistry final is also in 7.5 hours so I am wrapped up in a bunch of layers under a blanket to study. Since the water heater runs on the same gas line as the house's heating I'm uncertain if the water heater is working, and I may just skip a shower before going in for my test.

I was a LL for a while, never again for other reasons but I would Never rent a place like that. BTW, unless the LL pays the heat/AC then that is illegal to do and sure would piss me off if I lived there.
Get out while you can see what you can do to break the lease if you have one. Winter moving is hard but really, it is not going to get better.
My Gripe, LL that do this, or anyone that does this to anyone. I hate flippers for this reason, glad houses around here are too $$$ to make that worth while.
