Ok, does anyone else get annoyed when your husband is home sick? I don't know what it is, but when Marvin is home sick, I get so irritated with him. He doesn't ask for anything really, and it's pretty much like he's not even there; he just sleeps with a pillow over his head or watches the History channel quietly in the bedroom.
Maybe that's exactly what it is- I know he's here, but he doesn't do anything to help me, he just lays there and listens to the pandemonium. Of course, on the rare days that I'm sick and he's home (usually I'm sick and he's at work!) I do lay in bed, but hey- I think I'm entitled once in a while!
So, what is it? Why do I just want to throttle him when the poor guy gets sick and takes a break from work? Why can't I be kind and sensitive towards him like I am towards the kids when they're sick? Anyone have the answer??

I hear ya! It's because as mom's we NEVER get to just lay around and not worry about what's going on in the other room. If the children are okay, if the house is being ripped apart, if there are people waiting on us. You know. So... an answer... hmmm... not sure!

It's funny I was going to say something earlier because you seemed a bit 'on edge' :)

we need to plan a monthly girls night.

I get that way too and I never have figured it out. Nick told me last night he wasn't feeling very good and I almost fell apart after all the sickness this winter. We've had it pretty good - nothing serious, just constant. For him to bring something else home... Yeah. Sigh.

I found you through a link on 4 Little Men and just HAVE to comment. All I say is AMEN, AMEN, AMEN! It's so bad for me that I can't stand him laying on the couch were I can SEE him too! I HEAR YOU TOTALLY!
