Thing #2473 that sucks about having an absentee husband


No sick days.
I’m not at death’s door or anything but I have a touch of the whatever-it-was that kept Madalyn out of school all last week. I know I’m running a bit of a fever and am having random, minor chills and aches. Was a bit dizzy earlier, which Madalyn tells me is standard for this particular illness. When I cough, my head hurts. I had a crummy night’s sleep last night, not just because of the usual Eliza scenario but because I also kept waking up all sweaty, even though it was cold in the room.
Alas, there’s no rest for the weary at our house. No one will be arriving to take over. I just have to keep on trucking. Blah.
Huh. I guess I don’t really have a point. It’s just a pain, is all.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Oh no! If there is one thing worse than having three kids to look after without a husband, it’s being SICK and having to do it. Because, as you well know, mommies are not allowed to be sick. I don’t know how you do it, apart from you are a saint of fortitude and a better woman than I. Feel better, and hugs.
