I really don't like feeling bitchy.
I just checked our checking account....
$11. is in it. That is crazy. When I started
looking I was shocked to see how often Bob
has been eating out. We have talked MANY
times about his not doing this. It cost a
fortune and adds up fast. Not to mention
how bad it is. He used to eat out once a
week, now its almost every day he works.
The problem is ....
All his coworkers do fast food. 90% of those
coworkers are obese big time!!! I keep stalked
at home food that is portable for him to take
to work. Mini ravioli, green beans, apple sauce,
packs of tuna and fruit cups. I have noticed he
hasn't been using them. I bought that up just
days ago and he said his stash in the car is full.
Sure it is....he isn't using it. He complained of
swelling just the other day. I told him it had to'
be due to eating out since he doesn't use salt
at home. I am talking to a wall. I hear Yea Yea...
but nothing sinks in. I am so frustrated!!!! I
wasn't going to write about this but I needed an
out let for this. I listed the dates and amounts
of his eating out since he uses a debit card when
he eats. He ate out 7 times this month totaling
$53.58. He worked 10 days. On two days he ate
out twice. There is no reason he can't carry
lunches. NONE! They have a microwave at work.
There is no reason why he can't eat something
while he is waiting. They do wait for patients.
If they have time to do a drive thru ... he could
eat something he brought. He is such a fantastic
husband in some ways and an idiot in other ways.
I am far from perfect....I don't even try. But this
is common sense....but he just doesn't seem to
care. Our insurance kicks in Jan 1st. That is $60
less a week we will be getting in his pays. We have
to cut back now. I told him we won't be eating out
anymore. We only did it on rare occasions anyway.
I have cut back big time on walking to the little
store to get things. I used to go all the time. I go
may be once every two weeks. It took me looking
at the banking screen to make me realize how dumb
I was being by walking over there. We also have the
added expense of the broken car window. It just
never ends. Ok I vented! Do I feel better...only a bit.
I walked away from the computer for a bit. Just
need a break from writing about the frustration.
I don't feel like I am asking a lot. Bob and I need
to have a good sit down and talk. May be if I can
make meals and freeze them as TV dinners that
he can heat up at work. Just take one with him
when he goes to work. But I have a feeling he will
say the men will get into them. I will be praying
for guidance regarding this situation. I know I
cant solve it on my own. Say a prayer please.
I woke up a few times last night due to soreness.
and bathroom...I drink a lot of water... The
soreness is due to my moved around some furniture
yesterday. So my shoulders and arms are hurting.
More the joints than muscles. I plan to finish the
kitchen today. I was moving the bookcases back
in that I use for a pantry. I also rearranged some
things in the kitchen. Its like spring cleaning....
you create a mess to make it better. I have
everything moved into place. Its putting it all
back together and organized that is left. That and
a few dishes. I have a dinning room table with the
odd things I have to find a place for.
I also want to straighten up the living room and
dinning room. Ok meals....

Well I am now feeling more positive.
I always feel better after I blog.
I noticed I wasn't receiving my blog
notices when my friends blog. I went
to your blogs and clicked on following
them. So now I will be more aware on
what you are doing too. I feel this blog
reading has been one way long enough.
I need to see what is going on in your
lives too. I am still learning this new
computer. It is just so different from
my old one. It just takes like.
Thanks for reading.
