My husband spent the majority of last night ill in the bathroom. I’ll spare you the gory details, but needless to say; he took the day off work.
He’s been moaning and carrying on as if he’s on the brink of death, and I’ve been
ignoring him tending to his needs the best I can, whilst carrying on my regular duties of parenting and cleaning and reorganizing the living room and sterilizing everything because germs are gross and I don’t want them, thank you very much.
I can’t help but laugh, quietly, to myself, on the inside, because I never get to call in sick, even when I’m bleeding through various holes. (Wait, what? Ew). My absence is definitely noticed, and I most certainly can’t just spend the day in bed, no matter how shitty I feel. Not saying that he shouldn’t have called in sick, because yeah, he definitely needed to; he works in an industry where you need to have a clear mind and not be purging nastiness out of your holes, but still. I wish I could call in sick.
It’s the curse of the stay-at-home-mom.
Then I got to thinking about how awesome it would be if we could just invite some kind of sick line for moms, where they could call in sick and a replacement mom could come in for the day. Wouldn’t that be the bomb? There’s definitely a market for this, so why doesn’t it already exist?
Live Google interviews are the best. All you need to worry about is what you look like, and what the house looks like directly behind you (in the line of your laptop video camera). Everything else be damned! I even have a microphone this time, so everyone will actually be able to hear me!
The interview will start at 8pm EST (7pm CST) and go for about an hour. This is perfect because the kids (and the sick, sad husband) will be in bed, and I’ll hopefully be sipping on a nice glass of wine. 😉
So feel free to join us! I’m super excited to see what kind of questions Paula has for me!
