Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

Always Wash Your Hands

So last week was the Wellness Fair at work put on by our Health Center aka Nurse's Clinic. All kinds of vendors were there promoting this or that - our insurance, dental insurance, life insurance, adoption, Lowe's, Sun & Ski Sports, The Green Team (my boss and I worked this booth as Green Team members), etc.

There was one booth (and for the life of me I can't remember who it was. L - do you?) That had several types of hand cleaner and lotions and a blue light. The idea was that you really aren't getting your hands as clean as you think you are when you are washing them or using the antibacterial stuff on them. No one wanted to test it out - too nervous I suppose - so I did. She gave me this lotiony stuff and I rubbed it all over. Then I stuck my hands under the light and it looked nasty. You could tell everywhere I had put the lotion - even some fingerprints on the back of my hand, caked under my nails, and just spotty on my palms. I am guessing that's what it looks like when you half-ass wash your hands. She said to see the full effect, go wash the lotion off and come back under the light again. Well I forgot that part, but it still freaked me out a little.

No, I'm not going to turn into a 5 gallon totin' Hand Sanitizer freak when Peanut is here, but still. Gives you something to think about. And then after that experience, I get sent this today in an email... WTH?!

Not for the squeamish - Dean: don't open it!

Moral of the story: ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS WITH SOAP AND WATER FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES YOU TO SING "HAPPY BIRTHDAY."

7 nice things to say...:

OK - that is just NASTY!! Not only wash your hands well but also don't eat undercooked pork. Ruined my breaksfast for the morning!!!

Oh, I think it was our medical insurance that had that booth on the handwashing.

I may never eat pork again...

OMG- How gross!! All my friends make fun of me for always acting like a "germ freak"!! Well here is my proof!!

That is why I always cook pork until no pink is there. I have heard of this from people I know in Puerto Rico, but it was intestinal but came from the same source I think.

ACK! A worm in her brain?! Creepy! Clearly, washing your hands after using the bathroom is effective! Thanks for sharing that! Loved your Friday funnies, btw :o)
Enjoy your day,

Thanks for the comment on my blog!

I couldn't bring myself to watch the video but now I'll spend a few more seconds while washing my hands.

Hope your pregnancy is a very happy and healthy one!!
