In response to a confession. You're not in wrong, OP. Don't let your DH make you feel like shit.. We all deserve a treat sometimes. If you can afford it, then what's his issue? Doesnt he ever spend any money on anything fun or frivolous?

I'm confused as to whether or not I'm in the wrong. I don't spend money excessively in my opinion. DH claims I need to be more thrifty than I already am because he's not earning much money now. We have very low expenses and I have a good job and feel like he wants us to basically not spend any money at all. I mean, come on, LIFE costs money. We have to pay for food, we have to pay for bills, we have to pay for internet, we have to pay for gas, etc. I know he's stressed about his job situation but we aren't even dipping into our emergency funds or anything. I think he's overly worried about it because he grew up really poor but I don't think I'm being selfish if I buy myself small treats here and there and spend more on groceries so we don't have to eat out at restaurants and such.

Took the kids on an outdoor walking trail field trip today and had to use a public bathroom and freaking out about germs. It couldn't be avoided. Wish we hadn't left the house at all. I'll never forgive myself if we get sick.

Tried the diva cup thing and it took nearly 5 minutes to get it out. Freaked out a little, tried it again. If I can't get it out this time without feeling like I'm hurting myself, I'm going back to tampons. Sorry, landfills. I will reduce my footprint elsewhere.

In response to a confession. Just an update on selling my house. They asked the buyer what's most important, the list went from 30 to 19. It's still going to cost more than the $2k I can afford. The VA did the appraisal and to get the loan all that needs to be done is to fix a small piece of wood rot on the front porch. I'm waiting to hear back, but I offered to fix that and the bathroom, and an allowance so they can fix the rest if they want. They're kind of stuck because they're cash-poor (how my realtor put it) and already spent a lot on Due Diligence and inspections and whatnot. We have less than 2 weeks til closing, I'm crossing my fingers. My realtor put out a public video on her business page calling out difficult clients (I don't think she means me) and how she supports any of her employees to let clients go if they're difficult. I think that's unprofessional. I run my own small business, I'd never post a video about difficult clients on my business page.

It's awful. We haven't had health insurance in 6 years bc the price is based on our small business gross income. We don't even make a quarter of that net. And the coverage is a joke anyway.

Trying to find a mental health provider for my ADHD daughter who is struggling right now with the whole virtual learning thing. In my city of over a million people, there are a whopping 12 providers who take our insurance. Of those 12 providers, there are exactly ZERO who are taking new patients. Tell me again why the US healthcare system is better than universal healthcare?

I just led a 30 minute meditation with my sis in Brooklyn. It was so lovely connecting with her during the middle of the week. We already have family calls on Sunday, but this was such a nice treat to meditate with her over Zoom!

My dh really called me and said he's ready to lose his belly fat and I need to find him a diet. I told him we already eat healthy and the only thing that would help is to cut the 8 beers a night down to 2 or 3 on the weekend. This man really told me to buy him one of those scammy fat burners instead. I about died laughing when he finally hung up. Smh.

Bought my dh a custom thermos so that he would stop taking all my favorite coffee mugs to work and accidentally breaking them. Noticed mugs were still going missing- turns out he's taking his thermos full of coffee and also taking an empty mug. So that he can pour his coffee from the thermos into the mug because "I can't drink hot coffee." I give up. I'm just going to buy him a child's plastic cup and be done with it.
