Saturday, Hubs cannot stand.....

     Are men just big babies or is it just mine?  I have been having some problems with my arthritis since mom passed.  I am sure it is grief and stress.  But I can handle it and I just keep plugging along. Yesterday was still very hot 113 at our house.  I did some sewing that had to go out and in the afternoon I napped.  The shop was slow because of the heat and I was over tired as my sleep has been really disrupted by painful joints.

     I made BLT's for dinner along with a yummy salad that Hub's made.  Then it was just laying on the couch like a slug.  Finally at 10:00 I told hubs I was going to bed.  This is unusual for me, as I am such a night owl.  When Hub's came up he was worried that I was sick.  But I was just really tired.  I slept fitfully with night sweats and painful elbows and shoulders.  So hard to sleep when those joints flare.  No position is comfy.  I was up at 7:30 to let the puppy out.  Then I crawled back in bed.  Hub's came in about 9:30 and I was running a fever. 

     Now he goes into Hub's overdrive.  He gets me a soda and something to drive down the fever.  I take the pills swallow a couple of gulps and tell him to leave me alone for a while.  I am telling you he can't stand it when I am down.  He hovers and it drives me nuts.  I finally got up as he was sitting on the end of the bed messing with his phone and asking me to look at pictures of things I could care less about.

     Now he is going around the house doing all these weird jobs and hovering between them.  I may have to hurt him.  When I would be bedridden with my arthritis and the kids were mostly in college or late high school, they would all gather in my room and study. Hubs would call them and they would show up from different areas to hover.  One would be beside the bed and the other two on the bed reading or doing some kind of homework.  It was like a vigil. You know I am going to come out of this?  This family cannot see me down. Now that the kids are all grown Hubs hovers.  Can I just be down for a few days?  I mean really.

Have a great and productive day, I am not going to do a darn thing:)

  4. Lock the bedroom door!! ;-) He'll get the message! I'm like you - when I don't feel well, I just want to be left alone.

    1. Oh he would unlock it, or crawl through the window, he would think that was funny.

  5. I know it is hard to rest with people hovering. Is he afraid you will die and he will have to do it all? You could have the opposite problem like someone I know well, and have the husband disappear into the other end of the house and not even bring a glass of water. If I were in pain or had a fever, I would not want kids sitting on the bed. I am quite sure it was easier having them with you than him. Jiggling the bed with sitting drives me nuts.
