D was off early yesterday, actually was home by noon, so I had a LONG day with him. Love him but I think it's best he's gone M-F 7-4. lol I asked him if he was paid since it was the 30th and on the 30th he gets his big check, the one with the commission and you could see the worried why look in his eyes. He has this perception that I blow all the money which I somewhat do but it's not like I'm buying tons of shit we don't need or anything. I simply pay the bills, buy grocceries, buy the normal Walmart stuff, pay for all of our eating out in a month, and gas. I'm not out getting my hair and nails done or buying CD's. Just normal things. Since I was on our online banking account, he ventured over to look. Oh brother. I hate when he does this because then he gets nosey. He decided to add up all of his checks that were deposited since January and then figure out about how much in bills we've paid in 6 months. Ummmm....there was a big off set. Bills were about $15,000 or so less then what had been deposited. But then I told him to figure I'd paid $5,000 on the hot tub in 3 months so that made a difference. Then he started getting bitchy because he thought about it and said "wait, I haven't even added in your daycare money" which is about $800 or more a month. Then comes "where's all the money going? We should have thousands of dollars in savings?" Dude, I don't know. I told him I'd start watching money better. I know we eat out at least 4 times a month and that's $120 then when I take the kids out I probably spend about $50 a month on that but I seriously could not tell you where the money goes. We probably spend about $50 or so on toys each month for the kids but that isn't going to add up to $10-15,000.
He was also blown away by the fact that I had put $270 in gas in the van in a month. $100 of that was from going to Colorado but the rest is from running around. And today I'm going to Wichita, a 45 minute drive, to look at houses. We have been running around more with no daycare kids around, that's true and I've been picking up Dominic from school so he doesn't have a hour and 20 minute bus ride home. He then told me from now on I need to stay home unless I truely need to go somewhere. Sure, I'll get right on top of that.
