 today is our 6th anniversary. we ended up with sick kids so we had to stay home instead of going out of town for the day together then i woke up this morning with the same bug the kids have. all i wanted for our anniversary was to spend the day together and what did i get? DH went to his dads to watch football even though i asked him not to and got left behind with 3 sick kids a little help would have been nice. he swore up and down he'd be home by 4pm at the latest, he didn't come home until after 8 piss drunk and didn't even let me know he was home he just went up stairs and went to bed. i just want to cry

 i want to, believe me. i tried talking to him about an hour ago to find out what excuse he had and he told me he fell asleep at his dads. he's plowed. i didn't think wanting to spend the day together was too much to ask for.

I'm sorry. That was really rotten of him. I'd be pissed.. I hope you get better then what you need to do when you get better is leave the kids with him for the day and take yourself out. Buy yourself a nice dinner, get your nails and hair done and just relax while he watches the kids. Also make him pay for it!

 I get wanting to spend the day together and I think what he did was totally rotten. Howeve, a day together taking care of sick kids v. football...you can see which a guy would pick if allowed. Which is why I probably would have insisted quite firmly that my DH stay home and help me if I felt I needed it.

 I'm sorry, hugs you have a just reason to feel let down. Try talking to him about how you feel and how much celebrating your special day means to you and set up plans for once you and the kids are better for a special outing and date for you two to have a raincheck and give him a second chance to try to make it up  to you. Goodluck

I told him several times I wanted him to stay home and he blew me off making me sound unreasonable.

 Sometimes I wonder if I'm really evil or my DH is just really great. lol

I agree. I would never ask my husband to stay home in this situation, I would tell him. And he knows better than to ever ask.

Yup. My DH was out Saturday and it was all fine and dandy until DD and DS started both waking up every hour. I was soon overwhelmed and exhausted. So at 1am I texted him to come home NOW and he did. Then, of course, DS stopped getting up. Figures!
