Very frustrated with SO

I was very overwhelmed the last few weeks. I was behind in everything. I spoke with my boss and she advanced me my yearly bonus so, that I can catch up on my bills. Well, I am still a little short but, if I budget wisely I think I can make it. My problem is my SO one day is at my level of understanding the next minute he is thinking about what he wants and needs. It is driving me crazy. He did some stupid deals with his car and now he doesn't have one. I am taking him and picking him up. This seems to work out fine if I don't rush him because I will be late or no one comes with a good deal on a car. His brother came last night and told him he could sell him his car for $600.00 which is a good deal but, we can't afford that right now. I have told him this numerous times and he is still trying to figure out a way to get it. I am running short about $1300 to pay all that needs to be paid to be caught up. I have even told him to set himself a reasonable allowance amount every week because that is how he is paid. And to let me work with the rest. He came up with $75 which is a lot but, I agreed. That has not turned out to be enough. He gets mad when I tell him that he has gone over. If we were all caught up we should have almost $600 left over in a month after all bills, including groceries and gas but, we never do. We are always living paycheck to paycheck and behind on everything because of this constant struggle over money. I make more money than he does and I never see any money for myself and to be honest I really don't mind as long as we have all the bills paid and the necesities taken care of. We have been together for over 13yrs and have two small children and another on the way and I am tired of living this way. I want him to see what I am seeing and the potential that we have to be okay.
Sorry so long, in bad need of venting. GRRR
