Do I open the card or not?
So with the financial stuff and a heated "discussion" (I was hot under the collar and did the discussing) with DH. I did some calculations and looked up a few things to figure out how to make this right for me. (See previous blogs where DH makes a decent salary but really can't afford all the latest expenses and it has all been paid because I'm here with my paycheck.)
I have not sat DH down with the fix I worked out. I have barely talked to him the last two days because I don't trust myself not to go off on him. I'm that upset and needed time to think things through and make a plan. (also discovered last night he moved even more money out of savings to cover crap)
He took the last day and a half off. (Becasue it's a skid week and one skid doesn't have a camp to go to so of course he takes off...plus he informed me a few nights ago he asked his parents to come visit and was hoping they'd be able to come this weekend. No asking if it worked. Just telling me. I like my in laws but I always ask DH about events ahead of time. So there's that lack of consideration to add in there, like he always does when it's his family.) He cleaned the whole house and there is a card sitting on my nightstand. Been there since I got home yesterday. He does cards a lot to apologize.
Here's the problem. I think he believes that cleaning and the card will make up for using me as supplemental skid funding for the last three years. Unless there's a check in it for a huge amount of money I think it will just piss me off to open it. I'm sure it's sappy and apologetic and he feels bad. Trouble is the card is just his way to make himself feel better is my guess.
I need to go to work today and do a few things. He's off getting a skid from an away camp. I did speak to him to ask him to let me know when he gets back as we need to go to the bank. He asked why. I held back and just said to start fixing things.
