How not to be jealous....?

I am usually a very bubbly, happy - go-lucky, optimisitc person... but for awhile now I just am not that happy....

I dont think it is depression, I just feel like I am stuck a rut ... a very long , drawn out rut.

There is nothing really changing in the future anytime soon ( not anything to change the way I feel) ... There are a few things that I constantly think about and basically I want, and I honestly think that me thinking of these things all the time has made me feel this way.... and now whenever I see or hear of people who get these things, it makes me feel worse...

I am talking about another baby and a house that we own.

I am very lucky to already have 2 children, they are my whole life... I have always wanted 3, but now my husband has decided the 2 is enough... so for the last 2 years ( when these feelings started) he has been like a rock, wont even let me say anything baby-wise. .... and now it is harder to deal with those feelings, because I have several people around me having babies.

We have been trying for 3 years to buy a house, we found out after about a year that my husband had some unpaid bills from when he was 18 ( that he says he didnt know about) , and also his older brother stole his identy and racked up alot of various charges.... that we now have to pay will be ATLEAST 3 more years before we will even beable to qualify for a home loan ( or any loan) ....

Like it literally makes me so upset over that , that i cant even watch house shows on tv, they actually make me cry !!! and i feel like my husband just rubs it in because he always just says to suck it up and quit complaining and that we are stuck in this rental ( that we cant do anything with and has a ton of problems that we cant fix) .....

How can I get over these feelings and get back to my old self that would be happy for people who are able to have those joys in their lives.
