Then clean again 8pm-1am sleep 1:30-8am church 9-12 do regular cleaning jobs 2-5 dinner and spend some time with family and kids to bed and then clean again 8pm-1amThen start regular days again on Monday.And I have worked hard to get these jobs I do not expect them to just fall in my lap. I have already went to every local business personally and handed out business cards and given cards to lots of people through contacts- school, dance, church, etc. plus friends. Oh and just being out and about. I have passed out over 200 business cards before he even started this post. And I also got the business cards for FREE.I have made a budget numerous times before also but he wanted to control our finances. Said pretty much that I was dumb and he was smart with finances he did not turn them all over to me. So I saw full account of everything until 2 weeks ago. So yes I was stupid to not know or realize that it was not being managed well. But he did not trust me with them he calls me a control freak but in this matter he has been the control freak until now.Oh and here is the budget I made 2 weeks ago when it was all handed over to me. Budget I made before he even started this postBudget Then Budget NowMortgage 938 938HEL (2nd mort) 246 246Utility 93 93Home gas 53 53Electric 276 276Windows (c/c) 120 120Phone 92 65Life insurance 21.60 21.60Cox cable/internet 82 37.99ING 10 10CCdebt payments 440 440Medical bills 196.38 196.38Medicines 160 160Food/toiletries/vehicles gas 500 500In Nov van and car registration 152.06Total 3380.04 counting Nov registrations $3156.97Husbands Pay 2482.55Then I have to come up with at least $897.49 each month which I CAN do and will be trying to actually come up with more then that each month. And now 674.42 so since plan is to be my bringing in MORE then it can go to debt and random sick or check up dr apt's also.And I am the one that have made the changes the cable was for him and the girls. High speed was his doing I never said it couldn't be dropped to a slower rate. So while he just FINALLY stops buying books and gets on here seeking counsel. Which isn't fixing anything it's just causing more tension in our already on the edge marriage, I am making changes, not sitting on my BUTT.
