Feng Shui, H1N1, V

Hmm – I just saw the message that WordPress has updated to the next version.  I’m a little leery about doing the upgrade right now.  The last time I did that, I had to go through all my posts and delete a bunch of odd little characters which were randomly inserted throughout my blog.

So, I have taken a break from my marathon of blog posting.  I knew that would happen.  I’m still tweaking my schedule a bit here and I haven’t been quite as diligent about sticking to the schedule I actually make for myself each day.  It’s a work in progress…always.  :)

So, my brother, Chris, is out in California now.  He just started his new job yesterday.  He’s loving the weather and actually found a few old high school friends nearby so that made the transition a little easier.  So far, the jury is still out as to how he is going to like this new job.  His boss is a bit of a micromanager.  Christopher has been his own boss for the past year of so and to suddenly have someone looking over his shoulder again can be a little rough.  Our family tends to be the “I can do this all by myself” kind of workers (for better or for worse!) so I am really hoping that it doesn’t cause too much stress for him.

It’s been quiet here without him, definitely.  He is missed.  :(

On a positive note, I think we have finally decided what to do with his apartment downstairs.  We are going to turn the living/kitchen area into a library/rec room. We have books stored in various bookshelves and drawers and closets all over the house and we thought it might be nice to have them in one central location.  I’m going to be in charge of “Feng Shui-ing” the room to make it cozy for reading and relaxing.  My brother did not appreciate Feng Shui.  At all.  I’m actually not sure if what I do is actual Feng Shui, but it’s all about removing the clutter and filling the room with happy, positive things.  Nice lighting, comfy chairs, lots of pillows, etc.   His bedroom and bathroom will just get a good cleaning so that it can be used as a guest room.  (For all those guests we NEVER have…lol.  It’s good to be prepared, though.)

Meghan stayed home from school today with her fever and sore throat.  The nurse called twice last week to get me to pick her up from school, but Meghan really wanted to try and stick it out, so I let her stay.  She only had a 99 fever both of those days with a bit of a scratchy throat.  Yesterday, though, we finally gave in and I picked her up early and took her home.  The truth is, the school is becoming filled with sick kids and even though her illness seems to be pretty mild, I don’t want her catching anything worse.  In a few weeks the school will be getting a shipment of the H1N1 vaccine and I signed her up for it.  I’ve decided not to take the chance of her getting that flu.  I had a friend who just recovered from it and she said it was the toughest battle of her life….and she is not a sick person usually.  I did request the vaccine version that is Thimerosal-free, but I’m not sure if that’s even available from her school.  We’ll have to just wait and see.

So, the new V is on tonight.  I hope it’s good.  I have the old mini-series on DVD and I watch it about once a year.  It’s a little cheesy and dated, but I still love it.  I’m a sucker for a good “us vs them” storyline.

  1. Jen – sounds like you did a bit of what Feng Shui is about – removing stagnant energy through decluttering/cleaning and creating comfort. But, as you can imagine, there is much more to it! Balancing the yin/yang – textiles and hard surfaces, light and dark colors, patterns and solid fabrics, etc. Also, balancing the 5 natural elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. You have the start of it though! What you did is essential to good Feng Shui!

    I tried ‘V’, but it didn’t do much for me. I’ll give it a few weeks. There are some good new shows, though-Flash Forward, Modern Family, The Good Wife, and of course, Mad Men season 3. :)

  3. Jen says:

    Maureen – Well, it’s good to know I was doing something good with the room! I’m actually curious about the energy balancing of Feng Shui. My daughter and I are always talking about how a certain room just ‘feels’ better than other rooms. I’ll have to read up a little more about that.

    the H1N1 or Swine Flu virus did put our country in disarray for quite sometime, it is good to know that at least it did not cause so many deaths.

    My brother got infected with H1N1 or Swine Flu in Mexico. He got a mild fever and luckily he did not die.

  7. If you look at the pandemic of 1977, when H1N1 or Swine Flu re-emerged after a 20 year absence, there is no shift in age-related mortality pattern. The 1977 “pandemic” is, of course, not considered a true pandemic by experts today, for reasons that are not entierely consistent. It certainly was an antigenic shift and not an antigenic drift. As far as I have been able to follow the current events, the most significant factor seems to have been that most people, who were severely affected, were people with other medical conditions.
