New furniture and more...

The house is really coming together! This week we received our dining room table and living room set! Today I made a trip to Hobby Lobby for a few plants and other decorating accessories. I can't tell you how much I love that store!! I have never been until we moved here and I realized I have been missing out! They have such great things at a reasonable price. I promised I would send pictures of our progress so here it is:)

One of the most controversial topics with keeping our kids healthy is vaccinations. It is overwhelming all of the information you need to digest. Is it good or bad? I have decided to vaccinate Sophie for all of her scheduled visits. The burning question now is influenza and H1N1. I am still undecided. I have read up on both and don't know that I want her vaccinated for either right now. It is just so hard to hear of children hospitalized for Swine Flu and to think that could happen to your own healthy child is horrible. I will tell you my biggest fears of these vaccinations:

*H1N1 has never been given to children before, what is the effect down the road?
*I have read about the mercury in both of these shots, supposedly safe, but I still worry long term.
*I have never gotten a flu shot and don't know that I want to start me or Sophie on them now.
*The chance of sickness as a result of the shot, is it worth it?

I have heard that Swine Flu has ran its course and should be dimensioning soon. Lets all hope and pray that this terrible disease dissipates never to return to sicken humans again.
