It's horrible! I hate to even type the word. The word conjures up all kinds of horrible images and even worse phantom symptoms. You hear the word and instantly your head begins to feel tingly and wait ---- did I just feel that? Does my head itch? Do you know what word I dread to even type here? Well, here goes ------ lice ----- I did it. I typed it.
The news is out! We have lice. Feel free to run if you want. Don't look back. SAVE YOURSELVES!!
The good news is "it" seems to be a very light case and we have caught "it" at the very beginning stages. So hopefully we are rid of "it" very soon. I have been wondering when and if this would happen since the 3 year old started preschool. Not sure where she picked "it" up at but hopefully this is the one and only time she gets "it". I had "it" once when I was little and have stayed clear up until a few days ago. And when I heard the word, I cringed and shivered and wanted to tear my hair out. Then I calmed down and thought my head doesn't itch I'm fine ----was that an itch? No it can't be. But I combed through my hair just to be sure and yep sure enough. I have ---- (not gonna say it).
We then began the process of clean up and we haven't stopped yet. I don't know if our vacuum and washing machine can take it. We have been cleaning everyday. I think this is the most use our machines have had without a short break between them. Laundry has not stopped for 3 days now and we have filled the vacuum several times.
I did hear about a giveaway for a new Oreck XL Ultra vacuum cleaner at Crazy Hip Blog Mamas. I think now would be a wonderful time to win a new vacuum cleaner. I'm heading over right now to enter. The giveaway ends on Jan. 31.
By the way, does anyone know of any safe, natural products that work to rid or prevent lice? Better yet, does anyone have any they would like to give me to test and try out?
