So I'm alone with the kids this week. The Huz left last night for a conference in Vegas.<br><br>
The 3 kids and I are getting totally spanked by a late season case of influenza. We are on day 7 of sickness and 2 have ear infections. Plus, we have been having thunder at night which really freaks them out and makes for a wiggling, squealing, sleepless family bed.<br><br>
I'm going a little <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
So Mr D. calls this AM:" Hey, I'm staying at the Luxor and guess what? They upgraded me to a jacuzzi suite!"<br><br>
Now, I am truly happy for his good fortune and have decided that instead of wallowing, I shall work on manifesting a hot tub(seating 4) in my living room <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br><br>
.........but it is funny how things work out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> The way I see, it least he'll be refreshed and ready to take over when he gets back! Right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I remember dh calling me from a hotel room once when I was 8 months pregnant, sleeping on the bathroom floor with ds who had been puking all night. He woke me up when he called, because he had been at the casino and didn't hear his phone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br>
Good luck this week and make sure he knows you get a day off when he gets back!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I'm there with you. Dh is away right now for work. He just happens to be staying in Orlando across the street from Downtown Disney. Oh, and he went golfing the other day. Oh, and he's been to Pleasure Island the last few nights. But gee, it's with clients, so it's "work." Yah....I feel for the guy, I really do.<br><br>
I told him that I'm going to have to go away for work soon too. You know, to some kind of work conference for SAHMs. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Wow, you're really taking things in stride. I would've guilted him so bad...<br>
My Dh gets "conferences" in Whistler every year, and I make sure to move heaven and earth, if need be, to go too. There's no way I'd be stuck home with the kids and he gets to enjoy himself in a resort, expenses paid, guilt free.
