In response to a confession. House sale update: Buyer agreed to the $2k allowance today! From what I was told, the VA loan people won't approve a loan if the allowance amount greatly exceeds the estimated repair costs. I hired a contractor to give me an estimate & fix the bathroom subfloor. It turns out it doesn't need to be replaced as the Buyers inspector said, the inspector even said the subfloor to the entire bathroom was soaked. My contractor had a moisture meter, he said it's not bad, it's just damp, and it'll dry out. He sent pics and it's only about a 7-inch radius around the toilet pipe. I saved myself a lot of money. Now I only have to pay $100 to fix the leak and the small piece of wood rot on the front porch. Our contract that the Buyer signed says to only fix the wood rot, but I still want to fix the toilet so they can use it as soon as they move in. Not sure when we're closing (it was supposed to be tomorrow), hopefully by Friday.

In response to a confession. If you have to dry the dishes (such and awful boring chore) If you have to dry the dishes ('stead of going to the store) If you have to dry the dishes, and you drop one on the floor Then maybe they won't let you Dry the dishes anymore. -Shel Silverstein (And every husband everywhere when faced with normal household tasks)

My idiot DH decided to do laundry. Except that he used the scent booster beads as detergent and didn't add any actual detergent. I swear he does shit like that so that he won't have to do laundry ever again. It makes me low-key want to stab him.

I really really hate winter produce around here. It seems like it's getting way worse too...everything is almost expired when I buy it and nothing ever looks good. I swear that's the worst part of living in a cold area when you want to follow a plant based diet.

My coworker always complains about money and how she is always broke. Yet she sits at work and shops online all day, comes into work almost every day with expensive coffee and fast food for breakfast, refuses to drive a less than 2 year old car so is always trading hers in and losing money on it, always orders pizza and other takeout before leaving work for their dinner, etc. She tells me I have money to save because I don't have kids. That may be true, but I also don't spend my workday buying stupid shit like an electric grill or $300 worth of Easter crap or coffee drinks that add up to $30 a week. Little things add up after a while.

I cannot stand needy people. I know everyone goes through shit and needs a support system at times; it's the people who constantly, constantly ask everyone for stuff, always have to unload their problems on you, etc.that bother me. I suppose it was a bit how I was raised that you should try to not burden other people if you can work a little bit and fix things yourself.

In response to a confession. House sale update. I swear I'm in the twilight zone. Buyer finally submitted the estimate. $2300. not the $10k he claims he got an estimate for. My realtor tells his that the $2k we offered is fair. IDK if it's him or his realtor, but they're still hellbent on getting $10k allowance. No ryhme or reason, just want the extra $$. Mind you, I'm also paying buyers closing costs. Has anyone experienced where buyer/buyers agent asks for ridiculous amounts of money?

Also- thanks for this site that provides me with an ability to vent. I get so overwhelmed and I can come here and spit it out and go on with my day without causing fights or holding onto resentment. One day, I'll be actually able to donate instead of just saying thank you.

He refuses to invest in a stable retirement, refuses to adhere to a budget to get us out of debt, refuses to put any type of thought or help into raising our kids, refuses to help me figure out how to afford to send them back to school, expects me to just "make a blog or something" and make money off of it. There are just so many things, and I don't know what to do. Between the kids refusing to do school at this point because we're all emotionally and mentally exhausted, trying to find hours in the day to monetize a blog and find a WFH job that I can feasibly do, and rein in this idiotic idea he has, I just want to scream! I am hating myself for not finishing my degree, hating myself for getting married, and while I don't hate being a parent I wish that I had made different life choices. I feel stuck, and I don't know where to start to change it. 2/2.
