We had our hvac unit serviced the other day and was advised that the inside of the unit is covered in black mold. The guy asked if we are having any health problems - and I said in a questioning way..'yeeees' and then he proceeds to show me before he put the panel back on. He said that the mold is being blown into our house through the vents. Lovely. This explains why we are all still sick and can't seem to shake it. It's part of living in Florida unfortunately. But there are some types of mold that can be very dangerous - even deadly. Hopefully we can get this taken care of soon and we can start getting healthy again.
On another note, yesterday we had an emergency visit to the pediatric dentist. Jess had to have 2 root canals and 2 crowns. Unbelievable! The dentist agreed that part of her problems are hereditary (I grew up with the worst teeth EVER) but then she reminded me that I need to be flossing her teeth until she is able to write in cursive. I admit that I don't make it a habit to floss both of the girls teeth everyday and maybe that makes me a bad mom. But then she said that we should ONLY be drinking water. No diluted Crystal Light...no diluted Light Cran-Apple, no diluted Diet Ocean Spray. Water only. I proceeded to open my big mouth and express to her that I just really don't think that is realistic that a person only EVER have water for their whole life. Pu-leeze! I get so frustrated with statements like that. Healthy? Obviously! but totally unrealistic in my opinion.
And today, I woke up sick as a dog. I won't paint the not-so-pretty-picture for you...but the symptoms are much like food poisoning. I hope tomorrow will be a better day. I need to go grocery shopping for turkey day! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with the people you love.
