watching tulips grow

I wash my hands, use hand sanitizer, and then wash my hands some more.  I went to get my flu shot this year, and I never, ever touch a public restroom doorknob.  I tried, but it got me anyway!  I have been feeling pretty lousy the past couple of days, and I’ve ended up spending a lot of time plopped on the sofa watching these tulips grow.  Did you know tulips continue to grow even after they have been picked?  They just keep growing. I would say they’ve shot up at least an inch or so just in the past two days.  Pretty cool!  So I’m hoping to feel better for all of the Christmas festivities we have lined up.  I definitely want to be well enough to sample one of the Christmas Eve shooters my mom has been talking about.  Yum!
