Long story short, I've been slacking on couponing the past few months...My son was going to school 1hr away, 5 days/week so I was hardly home. My husband's psychecks have gotten lower (no more overtime) and we've had unexpected expenses (on top of gas & school fees) so now more than ever I need to get back to couponing, and he agreed...
So, the past few nights I've spent a few hours clipping, sorting, filing, making lists, etc. to get back where I need to be.
He got upset about something today and started yelling & swearing. I HATE when he does this because the boys can hear him, so I asked him to stop. I tuned him out after that because he was bitching about this & that and he likes to say things to/about me under his breath. Next thing I know, he starts yelling at me for "having my face in my coupons all the time lately."
I look at him, ask him if he's seriously gonna get mad at me for that when we recently agreed it was necessary. He starts to say something else about it so I said to him, "Why don't you make some more money then? Then I won't have to coupon!"
He got pissed off, and walked away. I feel bad, he works hard and is a great husband & father (just has his rare moments like tonight). I would work if I could (I did FT til I got laid off last year) but now it's just not possible. But it shut him up and I was relieved. He really had already gone too far, and I knew it would've gotten worse. I'm pretty sure it was just his way of saying he was upset I wasn't spending that time with him though.
Do you think I went too far?
Sorry for the novel. :(
