Does your husband have his head in the clouds at times?

I told my husband I was going to go grocery shopping at the super center here. We grocery shop for two weeks worth of groceries when we grocery shop. There are three of us. I spent $116 for groceries (food, diapers, etc) today. My husband goes "$116? That better have included the car seat in that amount!". WHAT?? $116 for two weeks of grocery's for three people and a car seat??? I wish!! He told me a car seat should cost no more than $40. HA! On what planet? I guess it was more of a vent than anything else, but does anyone else's husband not have a clue at times?

  • Mine was shocked the other day when I had him run to the store with $25 (what was left in the food budget) to pick up a few items becaue people were coming over.
    We needed peppers, raisins, lettuce and cucumbers for the salad and some apples for desserts. He came back cursing because he was unable to pick up the dozen other items he thought we needed.
    reality has no grip on him....
