Well it’s been a heck of a couple of weeks. Work has been insane. And hubby brought the plague into our house.
Ok, maybe it’s not exactly the plague. But it swept through our house with vigor and it seems to like to linger around.
Last weekend hubby first started complaining about his sinuses and, after relocating every tissue box to an easily grabable location (ie the coffee table, the kitchen counter, his nightstand), he declared himself to be officially SICK.
At the onset of his symptoms, he actually got into his car and drove to the pharmacy to buy himself some OTC meds. As you can probably imagine from some of hubby’s other behavioral patterns, this is sort of a big deal. He’s not only acknowledging that he’s sick but he’s taking some sort of action.. he must not be feeling well…… By day 3 he was miserable enough to go to a walk-in clinic.
After his doctor visit, he came home, chocolate shake in one hand (a reward purchased for himself for going to see the Dr) and a 10 day antibiotic prescription in the other. As he settled onto the couch, crumbled tissues all around him, I began to feel the first signs of a sore throat. Thank you hubby!
And by day five, hubby was still sick and I was spiraling downwards.
And there we sat, in front of the tv. Sniffling, coughing, sharing a blanket, and passing nasal spray & pills like a couple of junkies trying to get our fix.
It was an incredibly fun week……………NOT!
So, we are now both on antibiotics. Our house looks like a tornado hit it. There’s crap all over the counters, dirty dishes in the sink, laundry all over the floor and we are clawing our way out from under an avalanche of dirty tissues (I know… I’m painting a very appealing picture).
AND, all of this fun was only the beginning of our weekend…
To make sure we had the most enjoyable sick week possible, we decided to throw in a birthday celebration for hubby AND….. a 3 inch flood in our finished basement….. *GASP* yes, thank you mother nature, for trying to send in a deluge of rain to help whisk us away from all the germs in our house. The only thing you forgot was……… a full day of cleaning up a flood in our Man Cave was NOT what the doctor ordered.
And that folks…. will have to be a story for another day……………….
