I am so irritated. I am sick. Sick, sick, sick. High fever, diarrhea, puking (sometimes at the same time...fun stuff) headaches, chills, body aches...I want to die. This is on top of being about 30 weeks pregnant and having some contractions periodically.
When my LP had a headache and some nausea the other day, he stayed in bed all day long..."couldn't" do anything.
Now that I'm sick, well, I worked all day yesterday and half the night tutoring afterward, did the girls' schoolwork with them, cooked the meals, changed the poop-water diapers (kids are sick too), baths, my own schoolwork, and tried to hold the house together while the kids were destroying it.
He was out working on his friend's house (for fun...not pay), and when I finally called him to tell him to get his ass home, I needed help, he argued a minute and finally said "ok...just do what you have to do...don't worry about the kids for right now, I'll be home to deal with them." TWO AND A HALF HOURS LATER...(mind you he was 10 mins away)...he shows up WITH his friends...house is trashed....I'm sweating through my clothes looking like a train wreck, and the pair of them basically acted like I should be kissing his ass for showing up to help take care of HIS house, HIS kids, and HIS LP!
Keep in mind that he was home an hour...long enough to get the kids through the bath and vacuum the living room...and left. Got home at 4:30 am and is sound asleep while I got to drag my sick ass up to take care of the kids, change some more diarrhea diapers, puke sheets, and attempt some breakfast.
I guarantee you I get nothing but attitude about him "getting in late" like it is my fault and he didn't know what is going on at home. I had to call off work at 2:30 am, and I will spend my "sick day" being two parents instead of being "sick".
I guess I am just disgusted that he doesn't see this or recognize it as a problem.
