I can't take it. See, I am so UP DOWN it's ridiculous. I think it was yesterday how I posted good news/bad news.

I am trying to hard to be patient. Every day I look at my checking account or budget or ANYTHING and I cry. Literally. In tears. I have tried and tried to get Fiance to get a PT job. HE STILL HAS NOT. I joined TMF in the begining of April. I remember him PROMISING me he would. He has not. It is May 12. It's been over a month.

I got a PT job, and I've also been cleaning houses for some extra money. I had my dad stop taking out so much money for taxes, which gave us an extra $160.00 a month. I've increased our income to 720 a month.

What has he done? NOTHING.

Yesterday he went to the store that I work at, but a different location. They would have hired him on the spot, but the days weren't convenient enough for him. He is in a band, and they interfere with his practice time.

I've absolutely had it.

Why is nothing good enough for me? He's been cleaning and doing things when I ask him (when I'm working) and leaves me lovely and cute notes all the time. I laugh when I read them and melt when he comes home.

Then, I come to work, balance the books and look at how we are doing for the budget. Then I blame him for not getting a PT job.

Enough is enough. I'm going to give myself a stroke. Literally. I really don't know how much more I can take.

I called him on my way back from lunch and asked him if he was going to go to the store to get the job, when he informed me that he wasn't going to till next MONTH. I absolutely lost it, tears, name it.

I just can't deal with this anymore. I get home, I do what needs to be done. I have no time for ME anymore.....I just can't LEAVE things.

I really need to vent. Thanks for listening.
