Time to get sick.

Have you ever felt like there was a big ax hanging over your head? I have felt like that all week. Why do you ask. Because both my lovely wife and cute daughter have been fighting a horrible cough all week. They both seem to be doing relatively okay other than this hacking cough. But it is there sometimes in surround sound. This hacking cough is the dangling ax.

If a member in your household is sick what do you do? Can I avoid my cute little girl all day just because she sounds like a pack a day smoker? What about my wife? Sleep on the couch just because ever once in a while during the night she starts coughing enough to make the bed feel like a Las Vegas bed with a quarter slot.

No never. I spend time with my coughing hacking duo. But that comes with a price. My head is starting to hurt and there is an itch deep in my throat that can’t be itched. The ax is falling. It is falling fast. Wish me luck. I will need it.

  1. For a second there, I thought, “Did my husband write this? What if he has a secret blog?!” We’re in the same situation. I freed my man to sleep on the couch for a few days. He was very appreciative. Hopefully, he doesn’t get sick!
