I have been a sahm for a couple years now. I do love being with my kids. I understand there is sacrifice, and ive been happy to make many. But i guess i thought at some point, like now, id be able to do even one thing for myself. I havent had new shoes, bras, underwear, jeans, etc for several years. Well, my dad got my husband a very expensive gift for christmas, and gave me cash, for me to spend on me. Ive talked with my dad and he knows i have been needing a few extra bucks. And my grandma sent me a check. So a total of $600. I figured i would spend a couple hundren on the family, groceries and such, and get to do my hair, get a few pairs of jeans. HA! Well i have a dental bill that is due on the 16th and already budgeted for, but now dh expects me pay out of my christmas money. As well as a procedure on the 17th. And thats on top of me getting $500 recently that he told me i could spend on me, all went to bills and other shit. Im so tired of being last.
He has a couple hobbies he spends thousands on, gets away most weekends.
I stay home because we cannot afford a hobby for me, or daycare for me to find a job or go to school.
Im ready to bust.
