Lately it seems like I am not doing anything right my dh is the only one working and I am at home all day.
We have been living pay check after pay check. I tell him going to go grocery shopping he gives me a limit and sometimes I go $20.00's over sometimes he's ok with it and sometimes he bitches about when he bitches he says I spent $200.00 and nothing to show for I just throw him the receipt. He's like I would have made that amount stretch. I told him then you do the shopping. He's like wait a minute I work all day and now I have to do the groceries too. I told him yes since it seems to me I am not doing it right.
Not to mention he bitches about how I don't put enough this or that in our food when I cook, he's really pissing me off...I don't tell him anything bc I don't want to start any arguments but I just bite my lip.

My DH does this too. Not with the groceries but with the house. Some days he doesn't care if the house has toys all over and some daays he loses it. They're ust taking their day out on us. Some men think if you're not earning a pay check you don;t really work... and worst of all they think its ok to become your supervisor.

Don't let his moods get you down so much. I had a blow out a while ago with my DH. I told him I'm sick of being such a disappointment to you and I'm not going to feel that way anymore. I told him you may think I don't care but it's a matter of self preservation. I just can't let his nasty moods get me down. He is typically a nice guy but I am the lighting rod for his shitty moods. I have found that NOT going swing for swing with him takes out his steam and allows him to see what an ass he's being. When I start yelling back I'm just playing right into his hands.
