Had a terrible day yesterday involving a huge fight with my sister. One of her main issues with me? Not spending enough money on my nephew for his birthday last month. Claims I don't love him. I did what I could, spent an afternoon baking him cupcakes and treated him to a movie. The cost of the movie was something I could barely handle, but we made it work. Don't know when I'll speak to my sister again, and she will withhold my nephew from me.
Today DH needs my car to drive to a shooting range with my dad. Today was payday which is another stressful conversation about money and what bills we can pay. We were expecting a small bonus from DH's work today but find out first thing this morning it won't come until the 17th. The 17th - after our trip to TN, after our insurance bill is due, etc. How are we going to make this work? I work very hard on the budget figuring out what we can do this month. How much "allowance/fun money" we can have.
Dh comes to get my car, I tell him what I've worked out with our budget. Get in a fight in my work parking lot because he doesn't like how little money he gets to spend and doesn't want to "ask permission to spend $30" - gets in my car and drives off, I get in his Jeep to put it back in my reserved spot and go back to work. Slam the door - window goes off the tracks and door won't shut. I have broken his vehicle. Add that to the long list of things we need to pay for and can't. A jeep that needs a new transmission, needs an inspection and an oil change, now a broken window and a door that won't shut. Called
