It's that time of year, germs, colds, the flu- you name it. If you go to any public space from a shopping mall to an airport you will hear coughing, sneezing and sniffling. 

As I am writing this, I have a cold. Blah. My husband was sick last week and I did my best to not get it, but as we live in a teeny tiny place, there was no getting away from his germs.
