Quickly Running In... To Whinge

Posted by MANDI at 8:46 PM
I've been working the past couple of days while the school-teaching Hubby has been enjoying the school hol's with the kids. Why is it that when he comes home from work it's to a nice tidy house, a nice meal for dinner and the laundry is generally pretty up-to-date but when he's home and I'm working I come home to house that looks like it threw up on itself. Okay, that's possibly just a bit of a bitchy over-reaction but dammit, the house was messier when I got home that it was when I left.
Is anyone else having trouble with facebook? I haven't been able to get in all day and I may well be suffering from withdrawal symptoms.
Offspring #2 has a cold and has ever so kindly shared it, in varying degrees, with the rest of us. I'm doing my best to fight it but when you're allergic to pretty much everything that contains good doses of vitamin C it does make it a little difficult. I've hit my fallback position- hot tea and buttered toast. On the plus side she's had a cold for three days and hasn't had an asthma attack yet - this is actually HUGE news - it's the first time ever that she's deviated from the regular pattern of 'onset of cold followed two hours later by asthma attack followed by several days of misery and nights of wheezing, coughing, puking and no sleep'. I don't want to jinx things by saying that this is a massive development and we're a teeny little bit excited so I just won't tell you that.

Anyway, whining aside... don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already. It closes at 12noon (my time) Thursday so hop to it.

I am so with you on the leave the house one way and come back to it looking much worse. Hubby does this sometimes simply because he becomes overwhelmed with the 3 and gives up trying to get anything done and just keeps the kids from tying him up. I do find I get lots of empathy and cheers for doing such a great job with house and kids if I leave him for many hours. Too bad about the colds during school break. Too good about the "you know what"; I won't mention itby name and will send good vibes for #2 that she makes it through without an episode.

Thanks for giveaway reminder. Because you didn't mention the asthma I won't wish you luck with it (wink wink)

No kids, man still gets nothing done in the household... Maybe men don´t see a mess?? (Just make one?)
Won´t wish you luck either on asthma-related things ;-)
Otherwise hope you all get well soon!
