Why so difficult

We have been planning a vacation with my husband family for a year now.

He keeps telling me we can't go. We can't afford it. Then when I ask him if I should tell him sister he freaks out.

He said he's been hinting at not being able to afford it for a while. Not he hasn't. As far as I know we could afford it. He for real last week put the vacation time in at work. And its approved.

Hes been talking about driving our car instead of renting two vans.

I was trying to talk to him about it and he just put his boots on and left for work two hours early.

Sil is getting ready to rent the houses this weekend.

I'm just sitting frustrated with it all.

You guys should have been putting the money aside for the vacation each week/month.  I mean most people do that?

I would rat his nonsense out to his sister so fast I'd break land speed record for sure! Then everybody can sit down together and work it out.

And I'd be very curious about what money problems we might have that he's hiding from me.

He wants you to cancel so you are tje bad guy.

I would tell him if he thinks we can't afford it then he needs to call his sister today and tell her, otherwise I am going ahead as planned.

Doesn't sound like he wants a vacation at all.

Maybe he just doesn't want to go but is afraid of backing out at this point? Maybe they're awful to vacation with, idk. I'd be getting to the bottom of it.

Yes I know this. I try talking to him and all that but he either gets angry or ignores me. And he's working seconds right now so I don't see him much
