5 Things My Husband Isn’t Getting if I Get Sick

By hismrshermr |

Apparently being sick doesn’t have to put a damper on your plans to spend quality time with your spouse. This week Your Tango shared a list of several date night ideas for those who have the flu. My favorite is a TV marathon, although with children it’s hard to watch a marathon of any show unless it’s child friendly or you wait until they go to bed.

Reading their list got me thinking about what would and wouldn’t happen if I were to get sick. I’m using hand sanitizer and washing my hands like mad these days, but in the event that I so much as catch a cold there are several things my husband won’t be getting. Take a look:

Things My Husband Won't Get if I'm Sick

A Homemade Meal

In the event that I was to get sick I will immediately refrain from cooking. The only time I will enter the kitchen is to prepare a bowl of cereal for my little one (I will happily prepare a bowl of cereal for my husband as well should he desire such) and a glass of orange juice for myself. I will have no need for pots, pans, or cooking utensils.


That said, I’m crossing my fingers that I can navigate through the remainder of flu season germ free, and I am hoping the same for you! In the event that you aren’t well I hope you feel better soon! Be sure to visit Your Tango for their suggestions on how to still have a date night even if you are sick.

What are some things that change for you and your spouse when you aren’t feeling well?

    When mommy’s are sick we really need a break. Your five things that the Mr. won’t getting are on point. As moms we can do a lot even when we’re sick, however, if mommy is really, really sick, we deserve the tv remote!

    Maria I just saw this bag guess what? I’ve got a cold. So the above 5 definitely aren’t happening. Thank you for supporting our right to the remote! Greys comes on tonight so it’s mine!
