Big Spender

Why is it that the slightest hint of me spending money puts my hubs in a tizzy?
I merely mentioned that it would be nice to get a cute haircut and maybe a new top or something to start my new "job". Hubs remarks, "There you go wanting to spend money."
I am not one to just throw money every whichawhere. I buy groceries, gas and the occasional lunch and that's usually about it for my weekly spending as far as extras. It's very rare that I splurge on myself and it's not like I was planning on getting a hundred dollar haircut and a new wardrobe. I brushed it off and told hubs ok I guess I don't need to...whatever.
So that was yesterday. This morning I cleaned the fridge and freezer and checked my inventory and made up my weekly meal plan. All in an effort to wait for a little money. It's really quite an extraordinary concept.
Out of the goodness of my heart I asked hubs what he needed and the conversation went like this:
Him: "Onions"
Me: "We have onions."
Him: "I want fresh onions."
Me: "Sigh'

Him: "Tomatoes"
Me: "We have tomatoes also."
Him: "Fresh"
Me: Sigh!

Him: "Hamburger meat"
Me: "We have that as well."
Him: "Why can't you just get what I want?"
Me: "Why do we need to buy stuff we already have?"
Him: "I'll just go to the store later myself and get what I need. You go on and get what you need."

So it pretty much ended up with me storming out the door with kids in tow.
I've been sulking most of the day. He knows I'm not thrilled with him...but I'm over it, for the most part.

Men! I am rather irked at mine at the moment too. I spent most of my day cleaning the house. Since I was sick for a week it desperately needed it. While he did keep an eye on (loosely) the baby he couldn't bother to think ahead and move his butt when I was washing the floor. That's right, I'm down on my hands and knees washing the floor around him while he plays some stupid game on his computer. Ugh! And that's not even the half of it, but you don't really want that in your comments...

I hate fights like that... little things that should be little but feel really big. I hope ya'll work it out soon.

And I'm all for you getting a groovy haircut. I think good hair makes everything better. :)

MEN! Grrrrrrrr!

I say go get your haircut, since he is insisting on buying groceries you don't need. But I am vindictive like that. :-p
