my husband is.
So I came home from my sister’s house inspection in a bad mood.
I explained to him that I like my job and I work hard but the pay isn’t there. And I feel like I’m working hard for no reward. Everyone’s buying houses, getting pregnant or at least taking weekend trips to the shore [staying in a hotel] and I can’t do any of that.
We cover our bills and barely the groceries and it leaves very little money to reward myself with for my hard work.
And he told me to be grateful for what I have and to stop looking at what others have.
First off, we have each other - and no matter how much money we don’t have, we’ll never be alone.
He also pointed out that we aren’t doing ‘THAT’ bad. We live in a bigger place than most of our friends in a nicer area than most [that’s all due to my parents being the landlords and giving me a break on the rent, but still] .. and he pointed out that we don’t have much debt.
Other’s of our friends who might be doing these weekend trips to AC, or have kids, etc. are highly in debt. A stress we don’t have to worry about. The only thing on our back is the TV [he still owes $1000 on that] and once that’s paid off we’re in the clear.
He says we WILL get the cruise - probably with the tax return money we get because that won’t need to be used to pay back debt. It will all be ours. We’ll file really early, get the return really early and put a deposit on the cruise then.
He also said that a job you like is hard to come by so he doesn’t know if I should leave this job but if I wanted to it’s up to me to look for it, apply, etc.
We are in a kind of tight spot but not as tight as others we know and we need to be grateful for all we have.
Where did this man come from - I don’t even know but it was JUST what I needed to hear.
He is so yin to my yang it’s scary! But perfect. He’s an amazing man and I should be ashamed at how often I don’t give him credit. He’s out right now picking up dinner and he’s gonna liquor me up and I’ll repay him with out first no condom sex escapade.
OMG I hope this drug in me works and I don’t end up knocked up. It wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world but it’s not in the plans right now at all.
