Very Wierd Feeling

July 20th, 2009 at 01:57 pm

It is a very wierd feeling I am having this week. Usually I am floating checks by the end of the two weeks. But this week, I actually have about 200 in savings! I am not worred about bouncing a check at all! Although I keep checking my accounts to make sure everything is okay, I just don't have to worry how I am going to cover gas or anything this week. I don't quite know how to deal with this! I could pay some more stuff, but I like having that money in the savings account as a buffer! Feels really good.

    This is a good problem to have.

    Very good about having the extra money. Is it frpm Husband contributing? Are you a single parent? Things are so expensive nowadays, here's hoping He's doing his share. Wishing you the best...Don't hesitate to tell him you need money for things....

    I agree about keeping the buffer. You might even make it a goal to keep a certain amount at all times, as both a buffer and a mini-emergency fund (so you don't have to deal with the sinking feeling of taking out of your real emergency fund)!

    Saw that you posted about the $200.00. Excellent...I hate to run short before the next payday. ..It's hard to stretch money for everything....esp., with kids.. What does that mesn please when you sat you "financially divorced your husband''? Does he not work , or is untrustworthy?sorry to sound nosey, have you spoken to a lawyer? Hope you can keep saving....Best of luck.

    Yes, what did happen to make you want, or need to divorce Husband, financially. If this is too personal,pls exscuse, but read it on sidebar..Plus some of your blogs sound likeyou have it tough. Is he totally non-supportive? Maybesome others here have suggestions from, having been there themselves? I wouldn't give him money though, that you need for self, house, or of course children. . Wishing things imorove for you.

    My husband works, but rarely gets 40 hours a week. He is spending more right now to get to work than he is making. I put an end to giving him money a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't pretty. I have not told him about the savings account. As far as he knows, I am really broke. I broke the cycle of giving him money. He doesn't congtribute financially toward the household...but sometimes acts like I am supposed to provide for him...like a new car or dental work. I just can't. He asked me the other day what I had for lunch...all he had had for two days was tomatoe sandwich. I told him that we have all he needs to fix a deluxe sandwich to take with him. I have stopped enabling him.

    As far as why I divorced our finances...he doesn't take care of his financial responsibilities. He likes to blame his situation for not being able to pay for things. But he sticks his head in the sand and ignores it and hopes that it goes away. Iunderstand not having the money to pay for things...but you have to deal with it.

    He is not supportive of me on so many levels. We had a huge argument yesterday because I went to supervise my friends daughters 16 year old's birthday party. We are still barely talking. I fully expected him to move out today, like before. But now he doesn't have anywhere to go. He questions why I work late...I need the overtime. I told him that and he didn't have a comment.

    Sorry to rant...but sometimes it just gets to me.

    I just read your last blog.. Sorry to hear you are going thru such a hard time.. Have you thought of asking yr, HusAND to leave before heleaves, & telling him if he dotes go. he can't come & go..not fair to you ,andkids. Trying to take charge of the situation might be better than letting him set the situation... Good luck.. try to be strong... i would have told him to go. He would hate me... Stay strong...

    Oh dear, you've got some kind of troll stuck to your blog, north georgia! Frown

  12. Brenna Says:

    Having any extra money is reassuring, don't you think?hope that you are doing well.

    North Georgia. I can relate! I feel what you are going thru. Good luck. It's nice to know your not the only one out there.
