  1. Health and beauty
    Dh smokes 1/2 pack to one pack a day, he needs to quit because of his heart, he spent yesterday at the er and overnight stay with super high blood pressure, increased enzymes, nausea, chest pains, etc. I try to fix when I am home meals that are low sodium, low cholesterol, etc. DH is only 38. I...
  2. Dave Ramsey
    So I am the ultra nerd, I need my budget notebooks, my charts, my beloved calculator. Hubby is the free spirit, if left solely to him bills remain unpaid not due to lack of funds but due to lack of attention to due dates. Been seriously following a slightly modified tmmo plan since 7/10...
  3. General Chat
    My husband was teasing me the other night about my reusing my tea bags, called me a "pennypincher", I said that "Mrs Super Pennypincher fella". He laughed and then said the sweetest thing, said that "pennypincher" was not right, that I was a "Resource Manager", and did very well at my job. LOL
  4. Relationships
    My dog, my wonderful Sadie, a boxer died yesterday.my daughter called her dad to tell him since it used to be his dog also.He told her I'm a murderer and I killed his dog.He then told her I also killed his wife by telling him when he left me for her that God always takes care of everything for...

    Why is it that husbands can make you so mad? I have a good chance of going to school in the fall to take a PSW course. I first have to have my literacy test ( going tomorrow), interview (sometime in July), medical forums and Police check (due when accepted) all of which I know I will pass. I...
  6. General Chat
    Hi Ya'll! I've been gone a while now, the move from SC back to VA to FIL's house with dh has been pretty smooth. Total change of atmosphere though. And still both of us laid off...but we will be okay, there's enough doom and gloom that I don't need to dwell on it. So, this morning we were...
  7. General Chat
    I have been trying so hard to do things on my own, instead of running to the store and buying things. This week I've made a point to cook meals, eat leftovers. I really feel good about what I've done. Even pulled out my sewing machine and mended things that have needed it for months. This...
  8. Support
    I'm trying so hard to remain strong, but it seems like my husband doesn't want much to do with me or our children anymore. He's been horribly crabby and hateful to all of us for a couple of months now. He gets so angry over everything, no matter how small and just starts cussing and yelling and...
  9. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Husbands are funny creatures. I have been on the frugal train for a few months now and driving my husband a little nuts(I think) with all my money and budget talks. But I didn't think that I really got through to him. He says leaving on extra lights or taking long showers only costs a little...

    About two days into our vacation, Dh's brother calls and asks if he can use DH's car. His friend was having a birthday in Vegas, but he had to work friday so he couldn't drive out with everyone and his car would never make it. DH said no because we don't have the car registered or insured yet...
  11. Frugal Living
    Warning: VENT! Okay ladies, I'm pretty frugal, but I've had it!!! I got up this morning to have a shower and all I got was hot water from the shower head. This shower has been 'an issue' off and on for several years now...waiting for DH to fix it...waiting for us to have the money to fix it...

    If you have a good DH let us know! ( I borrowed this idea from a different board) Brag on your main man here. I'll start: My DH looks at my fat, frumpy, forty-two year old self, calls me beautiful....and his eyes say he means it. My DH is tenderhearted to animals and no stray cats go hungry...
  13. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    My dh, although I love him to death he doesn't share my frugal views, he supports me as much as possible and is happy that I'm frugal but I get so upset when I try so hard to scrimp and then he turns around and blows money on something I wouldn't have. Sometimes it seems that all my efforts are...
  14. Green Living
    For those of you trying to live more naturally, i.e. getting rid of non-stick cookware, plastic bowls, etc., do your husbands support you or even care what you are doing? When I talk about changing things around here to make it safer and more natural DH teases me and calls me a hippie. Now...
  15. General Chat
    How would you ladies react if you found out your husband had a LOT (he said thousands) of money stashed away in his closet? Mine told me last night about his stash, "just in case anything happens" to him and I need it. He considers it HIS money, but said it was available for emergencies...
  16. Education
    If so, do you wait to do your school stuff until after he leaves so that you and the children get to visit with him in the morning and early afternoon?? My husband works nights, and this year I was planning on doing all our school stuff starting in the morning and being done by around noon...
