OT - DH is working more
The last blog I posted about DH I vented that he doesn't want to work but he wants to spend money. We had a long talk about his issues, and he actually agreed that it wasn't right of him to only work part time while expecting me to buy him toys.
My main issue was him telling other people things like "the wife won't let me buy that" as though it's my fault we don't have a lot of extra money. He tried to tell me that it was always a joke, but I told him it still hurt and made me feel like he doesn't respect me. Since then he hasn't said it one time so I think he actually heard me.
He's also been working more hours. He's been asking his boss to schedule him more, which makes me happy. He was working 20-25 hours a week, and now he's a lot closer to 40. He asked if I wanted him to find a better job and I said no. He has a habit of always being unhappy at work and thinking the grass is greener somewhere else, so I told him to put his time in here until his boss makes him a manager (which is what he wants).
He's also been cutting back on how much he spends. He was buying lunch every day and 3 or 4 sodas, which seriously adds up. Now he's much more conscious, which I appreciate.
