    According to the hygiene hypothesis one of the main reasons for the increase of allergies, intestinal and stomach diseases and even things like autism and attention deficit disorder may be caused by the fact that our modern lives do not expose us to enough bacteria and funguses so our immune system loses its ability to fight them.

    WOW is my house healthy!!

    Another healthy house here LOL!

    I have a very germ phobic friend who cleans house THREE days a week. She is always sick! She actually has a couple of different auto-immune diseases.

    I miss my dust, when the phone rings and I have nowhere to jot down a note or phone number.

    I don't mind when people write in the dust but it is very embarrassing when they DATE it.

    BTW, did you know that after 7 years the thickness of the dust never increases? no, I don't know this from personal experience, although DH might disagree.

    I must hid this from my 16 year old. Last thing she needs is an excuse not to clean her room.

    As for me, its a great reason to sew instead of cleaning :)
