So we were going to buy a house and have my MIL move into our current home. She decided she didn't want to (that's a whole issue I won't even go into), and there were issues with the home inspection so we got out of the contract. Then I found the PERFECT house for our needs for way less $$ than the original house. Our financial planner and I decided it would be wise to still keep our current home and rent it out.
Well, DH has unilaterally decided that, no, we are not moving or renting our house and we will add on and remodel this house. Oh, and I should coordinate it all.
I realize that I've been a SAHM for the past 20 years but I did bring income into our marriage for the first 10. His career has always been the driving force of what we do and where we live....basically we never make plans ahead of time unless it's for a work event so he can either work more or "chill".
He usually plans what we'll eat, shops and I cook it. Today I went to the store and had everything ready to go after the 6 pm Zumba class....chicken sausage, "creamed" kale, acorn squash & baked potato. He pouted, refused to eat the kale (which he usually eats), and loaded his potato with cheese.
I just don't know what to think about all of this. He's a good man, great dad and would buy me whatever I want. But I'm not that kind of person, I can't imagine anything that I really want to have. I like the simple life....extra stuff just gets lost, broken or needs to be cleaned!! But I thought I had a say in my life; I guess I don't and I'm not sure whether it's worth fighting about.
thanks for letting me whine.
