Wish I had a SICK DAY

Being sick sucks. I hate being sick and I am not good at being sick.  I would rather change poopy diapers than be sick like this. Not that I really want to be changing poopy diapers, I hate that too. Especially now that we use those cloth diapers, that is nasty.  You get the point.  T and the kids were sick a couple weeks ago and she was awesome, day in and day out, taking care of the kids, homeschooling, cooking, cleaning.  I mean she did everything and didn't even let the flu hold her back.  Me on the other hand, I have been feeling shitty since Monday and havn't felt like doing anything but sleeping and resting.  I am here at work AGAIN feeling like shit.  My awesome place of employment that I have worked for now 8+ years is so great that they allow us to have oh lets say NO sick days. Yeah NONE. One week vacation, NO sick days and I have been here that long, every day all day and never miss work, except when T was having the kids, and I even used my vacation time for that.

I know people, you and my wife say the same thing "If you don't like it then find something else" well being that jobs are hard to find and I am making enough right now to let her stay home, I have to suck it up.  Until??? I don't know.  I get to sit at a desk and feel like shit and at least I am not working manual labor or anything, I mean my job is easy sit here for 11 hours and call and piss people off and find their cars so we can go repo them...FUN RIGHT?  Not when you are sick.

Another problem with being sick is that when I finally get home a 9 pm, I have no energy to do anything, which means I am absolutely NO HELP to T,  and I am usually no fun for the kids. I get to see my C's for only usually 1 hour at night and when I feel like shit I am no good to them. It is not fair for them, but being sick is out of my control. I do my best to be a germ-a-phobe, and I get sick usually one time per year and it is alway bad so guess we will see and let it run.

When I get sick, I remind myself how lucky I am.  I mean I have this great wife who is the best mom and she might get sick or whatever and she never lets anything take away from running the show. I get up and drive my sick sorry ass an hour to work, sit at a desk, curse people out and blog about it.  T wakes up, does breakfast, teaches C1, does lunch, does dinner, cleans house, does laundry, and oh yeah cant forget to mention takes care of 4 C's one who is almost 8 months old.  The only plus to being at work is that I am getting paid and I am not giving her another child to take care of.
