Blue Collar Roundup — Being Sick Edition

sick stuff 1What happens when you get really sick for weeks and don’t check in with your blogger buddies? You get less visitors, your alexa score goes up, and you feel like a jerk. Sorry dudes. My girls got sick, my wife got sick, and then I got sick. It sucked.

I’m mostly better now, so enjoy the photos of things sick people need/use, and click on some of these posts that I did find time and energy to read.

Oh, and stay healthy. Being sick sucks.

Frugal Rules has this post about stay-at-home moms. My wife will be getting a job when our girls both get into elementary school, but until then, she’s a stay-at-home mom. It’s tough making ends meet sometimes, but her and I both agreed that it was really what we wanted to do if we could! And I don’t think it’s easy either. I don’t know how she does all the cooking and cleaning and getting our girls where they need to go, and she’s still got a smile on her face! sick stuff 2

The sales just go on and on, don’t they? “Before Thanksgiving sale!” “Black Friday sale!” “Cyber Monday sale!” “Before Christmas sale!” “After the holidays sale!” “New Years sale!” Not being Canadian, I didn’t know about the “Boxing Day sale!” They always think of something, don’t they?

  1. Thanks for the mention TB! Sorry to hear all of you have been sick. Man being sick is the worst. Glad you’re finally starting to feel better! I got hit with something nasty on Sunday that thankfully didn’t last long and I was able to knock out with extra sleep. I need to go restock on NyQuil and cough drops though.
