Shooting for a NSD

July 23rd, 2009 at 08:24 am

I am trying to make today a nsd. The problem I have is that when I have the extra money in savings, I end up buying things that I need, but have done without.,..like the ace bandage I bought yesterday...or the special shampoo for my DD...or the fly traps for the kitchen. I am trying very hard to not spend any money today.

DH isn;t working today. Apparenlty they don't have any work. He is broke again. Not sure why. He only drove to work three days this week(one he was sent home!!). But I am resisting the urge to give him gas money. I have it, but don't want him to know I have it. Then he relies on it and acts like I am supposed to give it to him.

On other news...I haven't had a cigrette since Monday. I am not what I would consider "addicted" to the cigarette, but rather the act of smoking. I quit with both of my pregancies and I don't smoke at home...only at work. So at best, I smoke about 3-4 cigarettes a day. But I have been cutting back, not really wanting them. So when I ran out, I didn't buy anymore. I will probably breakdown and buy a pack, but at least I am making progress!

    I know what you mean about spending; I always find a way to spend all my spending money, but I could probably get by on less. And congrats on not wanting cigarettes! I wish I could have been an occasional smoker, but I loved it too much and had to quit altogether.

    That's good about having a NSD. It is hard not to spend on little thing isn't it? That's what happens to me. Unfortunately all the little things add up. I have been trying to have days where I don't use my car to save gas money. It sounda like you are doing your best, so you should be proud of yourself....

    Forgot to say in my last post.. Is there any way that your husband would be ableto collect some unemployment, for the differences inhourshe wasn't able., or not given hours@ his job? I have heard of people doing this, for ex., if you usually work 32 hrs., but get 20hrs u can go to unemployment for the difference? Justa thought...

    He was hired as an independent contractor so that won't work. Had already thought of that! LOL

    How about just telling him you are done? Not Lol.

    You have been really nice about your situation. Have you tried giving him a list of bills, and asking him which one he can /wants to pay? maybe if he sees it written down , he'lllisten? Maybe you tried this? Why does he think he doesn't have to contribute? How long has this been happening? Have you thought of goingto a counselor? He thinks he can do what he wants? This is a tough situation.

    this is totally sarcastic but, next time husband asks you for money tell him to lokk into being a "dependent worker"..MEOW, sorry couldn't resist.

    after reading through all comments i would say that some women are stronger & moresure of themselves , & leave it at that . North georgia probably already feels bad, and has regrets about how she is living. we should try not to comment so much, even if we disagree with her choices.

    Creepy, all of these comments have different names on them but they all go back to the same e-mail address. What's going on, Joan Rolfe?

    Thanks Ceejay!

    No problem, north georgia! I hate to see someone latch onto your blog in such a nonhelpful way. Someone has issues...
