Just looking to vent - DH "sick" again
DH is the typical man (sorry StepTalk guys) that gets the "man cold", if I have that same cold I'm still pushing through and do my daily tasks, at most I'll go to bed an hour or so early. If DH is sick he is laid up in bed, calls in sick to work, and pushes all parenting to me. He'll stay home, do a few things like take care of the chickens (collect eggs and give them food), clean up any dishes left, and maybe do a load of laudry, but then when I get home, he cannot help and is back in bed.
Last night I was in bed by the time DH came home from his bowling league, I woke up around midnight and DH said he was freezing even with 2 blankets on. I checked his temperature which was fine, added another blanket for him, and went back to bed. He got up around 5 went to the kitchen for a while and came back to bed at some point. After I had gotten up around 615, showered, and returned to our bedroom around 645 I asked DH how he was feeling, which he replied he was feeling much better but just tired now. He didn't say anything else so I continued to get ready which consisits of taking care of our dogs, and getting DD3 and DD1 ready and out the door.
In the mornings DH makes sure SS16 SD15 and SD13 are all ready, and takes the 2 SDs to school, while I handle our DDs SS16 drives himself but leaves at the same time as us. Well DD3 went into see DH this AM around 715 and he was still in bed. I know I shouldn't have (because he didn't ask) but I asked if I was supposed to be taking care of SKIDS. DH asked that I take SD13 to school, which would mean SS16 would need to take SD15 to school. SD13 was actually on time FOR ONCE today, thank goodness. I don't know what happened with the other two, I was too irritated to bother at that point.
I get feeling sick and needing a day off work, but DH literally takes a day off work probably every other week, and most of the time it's because he just doesn't feel great, not because he's legitimately sick. A couple weeks ago he took 2 days off in a row because his stomach hurt, the first day he stayed home he said he didn't eat much, but then ate pizza that night for dinner, then he stayed home again the next day.
I just don't want to be responsible for making sure SKIDS are at school when he's just not feeling like working. It just sucks, I have enough to do in the mornings! Also, most of the time the SKIDS are always late because he won't give them consequences for being late when he's taking them to school. He just hounds them all morning that they're running out of time and need to hurry up, they're constantly late but he never does anything about it. Not to mention I literally cannot even remember the last time I took off work for being sick, although I haven't felt well just as often as he does. But I have to save my vacation time for when the DDs are sick!
Just venting I guess, sorry it got so long....I think I'm PMSing too so I'm just irritable.
