how does it effect your household? When DH came home yesterday he was huffy about what a mess it was and said it is not normal that just because I am sick the house is a wreck. (we went through this just a couple weeks ago when I had a stomach bug too) He feels the kids should have been able to keep it clean. I told him he is ridiculous.

What happens in your house when you are sick?

The house falls apart and I put it back together when I am better.

I just went through being sick for a week. The aftermath was a disaster of epic proportions!

We TRY to get the teenagers to help but all we get is mouthing off and half-a**ed help and my husband does what he can when he's home.

I am trying to get it all caught up since today is the first day in a week I have felt human.

It depends, usually when I am sick half the kids are sick so on those times the house somewhat falls apart and we fix it when we are better. If it is just me then the kids are pretty good (not always) about helping out with the little ones and trying to keep the house clean.

Thankfully my husband knows better than to complain. LOL. I have RA and I often have days where just making sure the kids don't kill each other takes every last drop of energy I have.

My husband does what he can to pick up the slack, the kids help out as much as they can, and when I'm feeling better we get everything back to normal.

My husband knows his head would get bit off if he ever came home in a huff over a messy house
