So, my wife has contracted a little stomach bug, so she is relaxing in her throne ( not THE throne that flushes ) and catching up on her Soaps. I moved my OGRE black lining operation to the dining room so I could be with in a few feet of here, should she need anything. I involved her in deciding which OGRES to black line first, which she appreciated, showed her the end results, etc. All is good in the world, save her being a little under the weather. But now I am more knowledgeable in Days of Our Lives than I ever thought I would be. Is this a singular occurrence? Has anyone else been in a similar situation? Just curious….

I've had to "take one for the team", wife had the flu. I have to say that I don't recommend catching the flu. And like you, paint and rules operations were moved closer to the front lines.

My assembly and painting operation is in the dining room by default. It's on a flattened out cardboard box so I can pick it up and move it out of the way … mostly when people come over to game. The purpose is so that we can inhabit the dining room/living room (wide arch open communication floorplan) watch tv (sports) and craft together.

I also routinely get feedback on my minis. Mostly honest.

SWMBO has been sick twice in 30 years (well … that I know of or while I wasn't on deployment). Both times, she holed up in bed and sweated it out (with the help of antibiotics) for two days and I kept away (no noise) and listened in (baby monitor) to make sure she was OK.

eto, a true family man, well actually all of you. My shop was in the basement, now I've been exiled to the garage, (No basements in Florida!). When the SWMBO is sick I get out my nurse's habit and we play doctor, at least we used to.

I remember having to forego a weekend plan of gaming because my wife had hurt her knee,and I had to take her to urgent care. Luckily,no fractures.

I had to leave mid game one time when my wife went into labor (false labor – but none the less).

The right thing to do, as she surely has had my back on many deployments.
