I'm not sure I really belong here either since I just moved in - but I've been going through some of the same stuff. (Been looking at Family Fool board mostly, not here). It has taken a fair amount of explaining but possibly my boyfriend is just realizing there is a logic to what I do that seemed a little compulsive to him (being a former cashier I expect the checkbook to BALANCE, & I'm not writing checks unless the money is ALREADY THERE, etc.) I'm learning to be more patient & more calm & logical & to appreciate progress in small steps (the rent, phone & cable are caught up though something happened to the phone bill before he went on the road.)
Oh well. Stepping back & looking at it all w/ a little perspective, I'm thankful.
