Couch Potatoes!

That is what me and my son have turned into since we started getting sick. When going to daycare and going outside is not an option anymore we have filled our MythTV with all kinds of cartoons and have watched all of them at least 3 times. It´s sad to see him become such a couch potato but with me not having as much energy with this growing belly and us not being able to go out I can´t do much else. I don´t let him watch all day but a movie a day is quite a bit of TV for a 19 month old.

We decided to check our house for mold. I looked at the symptoms the are listed for problems with mold:
1. Respiratory problems, such as wheezing, and difficulty in breathing
2. Nasal and sinus congestion
3. Eyes-burning, watery, reddened, blurry vision, light sensitivity
4. Dry, hacking cough
5. Sore throat
6. Nose and throat irritation
7. Shortness of breath
8. Chronic fatigue
9. Skin irritation
10. Central nervous system problems (constant headaches, memory problems, and mood changes)
11. Aches and pains
12. Possible fever
13. Diarrhea
14. Possible hemosiderosis
15. Immune suppression

The symptoms that are in bold are the symptoms that we have been suffering from. That is way to many for it not to be the problem. How to fight it is another problem that will end up costing us a pretty penny. Anybody dealt with this problem before and have good tips?

Knitting is coming right along and I will be getting my order of yarn from knit picks in the next few days. I´ll take a pick of the yarn when it gets here. I´m excited.

Thinking about taking over the mommy tea on Thursday since my neighbor is not feeling up to it at the moment. My son just needs to be feeling better before I can commit to it. It´s a great excuse to keep up with my housework as well. This way once a week my bathroom will be clean and my floors clean and all that jazz. This will make Odinn´s toys seem a lot more fun to him as well because he will learn new ways of playing with them when the kids come over. Anyway it´s something to aspire to. I´ll know by Tuesday.
