Recently my hubby and I have had desagreements regardign the conduct of guests in our home. He has a friend who comes in the evenings to run with him. I have had to set a limit on how late this friend stays on weeknights because one night he was here until midnight. 10:00 if we have work in the morning this friend must go home.
Also, I am uncomfortable with how this friend acts when over, He helps himself to out fride/pantry and I end up feeling the need to keep an eye out to make sure he doesn't eat our dinner for the week (I plan menus and shop ahead). My husband sees nothing wrong with this. For me it would be different if he was just helping himself to a drink, but I don't think he should be helping himself to out meat and other items I bought with the intention of using them for our dinner that week. My husband said he was embarrased when I took a pack of chicken strips from his friend and told him that was for our dinner this week. We just bought a house and I am trying to keep our spending down...we can't afford to just let people raid our fridge.
I also get anxious about people just going through our fridge/ cupboard unless they are family, I would not even like my friends doing these things. Im I over reacting?
I am very anxious because he is having a bunch of people over soon for some gaming, I am afraid of being eaten out of house and home.
It is 10:00 now and his friend is still here, passed the time my husband agreed to. I have already dropped hints that it is time for his friend to go so we can wind our weekend down and prepare for the work week. Can anyone offer any advice? I am completely new to this hosting guests thing, we only bought out house a few months ago...Is it my conduct that is wrong?
We did off the friend fruit and granola bard (we dont keep anything unhealthy) but he said it wasnt good enough,
