Lack of motivation & random ramblings

March 16th, 2010 at 10:42 am

Having one of those "blah" days.

My Aunt called a couple days ago saying she had finalized all of my Dad's affairs so I would be getting another $5500. Off to savings that goes.

The doctor regarding the surgery called. $9K and I'd have to front the money whether or not insurance covers it. So I think I'm just going to wait. I'm doing my best to try to adapt to it. As much as it annoys me, I know if I end up having the surgery and we end up in a bad financial position because of it... its not worth it when I compare the discomfort.

My son finally got his soccer coach assigned to him and practice starts Thursday. So off to get cleats, a soccer ball, shin guards, socks, and some other practice clothes I go.

I think I'll probably have to go alone though. DH is stuck at work late today.

He also left me for a lurch for my CPA exam. For weeks I have been saying "Ask for the fifth of April off" "When should I take the exam?" "You're SURE I can take it on the 5th?"

So I schedule the exam and he calls me yesterday saying that I may have to reschedule it.

By this time I'm fed up. My life has been on hold trying to accommodate his schedule for years now. I realize that if I'm going to take this exam and get it done in my planned schedule, I'm just going to have to find another way. Sometimes I just can't rely on him.

Luckily, my neighbor down the street said she'd watch the older kids for me.

Its a pain, but I guess I better get used to it. Something about the Navy doesn't equate to being reliable even though I know my husband completely means well to.

I wonder if this means I'll have to have 2 or 3 backup childcare providers when I start working outside the house.

    I find the same thing, the inability to rely on my husband. Army ALWAYS comes first. It's the main reason I don't work outside the home.

    My daughter schedules her photo shoots around DH. I think that is why she is coming to live with us when he deploys in July!

    Creditcardfree, it never ceases to amaze me how the military always comes first in our marriage. I joke and say that I may be a married woman, but I'm a single mom when it comes to having to be the only one that can really be relied upon. DH helps around the house a lot & is a fantastic father, but still yet... when he has to go, he has to go.

    Homebody, your daughter is really talented! She takes beautiful photos. Smile
