There's nothing sadder

It really is the saddest thing in the world when my husband is sick. He isn't the typical big baby that most men are when they get ill. He sucks it up and goes forward and that I think that is one reason it is sad to hear him sniffling in the background. He just spent 1.5 hours chasing around 16 12-year-olds and a 7-year-old at the soccer fields. He'll get up around 5 a.m. and go to work only to return to chase around about a dozen 7- and 8-year-olds at baseball tomorrow night, too.

Dude's my hero.

I'll feel a little guilty Thursday when we set sail into the Gulf of Mexico for the tropical breezes and 85-degree temps. But, the guilt will slowly subside, I'm sure.

    Sometimes staying at home is much smarter. There's nothing tough about exposing those children to sick germs and possibly getting one or two sick.

    I'd much rather my son's coach - if sick - stay home in bed getting better than be around my child.

    Think, people.

    Well I am not giving ballroom dancing lessons and I don't yell and have spit flying all over the place like my high school football coach so they should be fine. I am just not close enough to spread the germs.

    Besides, all of these boys attend public school, they are probably a greater danger to me than I am to them from a germ standpoint.

    Anon - nice to hear your concern. Thanks.

    And, yeah, I know what you're saying about sick people who go around others. He isn't THAT kind of sick. He has allergies as a result of the dusty winds that blew in on Saturday. Last I checked, allergies weren't contagious. If he had the flu, I'd insist he stay in bed and recuperate. As it is, he isn't spreading any germs around.

    AoM: Uh, OK, my fault. I didn't see the part in your post about allergies. Anyhoo...
