He's Got It!

My poor hubby came home last night sick with this gastroenteritis making the rounds. Or at least I'm assuming he was sick when he got home, I don't know for sure since I was asleep. I could've gone to sleep at 8 and almost conked out while getting the kids to bed. I was out like a light by 9 (that may or may not be due to the fact that I'm currently reading Tolstoy's The Death of Ivan Illyich). Hope I'm not coming down with anything. I feel fine, though.

Let me just say that my husband has been working 12-14 hour days for quite a while now so the average time for his arrival at home is 8:30 or 9 p.m., at the earliest. He's an art director for a local video game developer and his game is the next one up for publication so he's under an amazing amount of pressure, thus lowering his immune system. It's not unheard of for people in the gaming industry, specifically artists and programmers, to work these long hours. Even more time will be put in during "crunch time", the weeks preceding the game's final deadline. Yeah, it sucks, but what're you gonna do?

Frank was up for a bit this morning - long enough to keep Flynn company while I ran Evan to school and to email work to let them know he was out for the day. He's been asleep since.

Neither of the kids is sick (yet) and I'm keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way.

I kept The Poo home today. I just couldn't risk it.

Hope your hubs is better soon!

Frank was back to normal on Fri. a.m. and went to work.

Thanks for the well wishes.
