@MsBrooklynA: Exactly. That money is what keeps us paying for a wedding, and keeps us from being at $0 the day after our wedding!
LADIES! I have had so many fights, tear sessions with Fiance about this. Just because we have lots of money, we have a goal and we are no where near that goal. I have always felt in the wrong for voicing my dissapproval on certain purchases. Once we combined income I said it needs to stop. And it did. He gave me all his $ ( most of the savings was his), total control over it. Then his parents offered us this time share. I said no weeks ago and it kept coming up, me feeling like um thought we already decided this.
The dog thing. It was almost my ticket out. No Boarding was available for the dogs but we found boarding there in NV. dang it. Boarding was available for the dogs but we found boarding there in NV. dang it.
@Earlybride: He just got a job, one that I didnt agree to. Hence me being hyper sensitive to being unsupportive. He was getting more $ on unemployment and he didnt do the paper work to make up the difference. He spends more money on gas and parking that it doesnt make sense for him to have this job. I was a little ( ok VERY) insensitive about his ego and needing to workso after a big fight I told him how I felt and he kept the job and is still applying for many jobs evry week…our comprimise.
@Amy43026: We wouldn’t spend the holidays with my fam. My parents live in FL and my one sis that is here will be in Mexico so it would just be the three of us.
I have tried to get rid of this dog since she got here. she has charged my son, growled snapped at him countless times, growled and threatend me, fights with my dogs. Bit though my 11 pound dog’s ear in a fight, bit her body and left puncture wounds. She drives my cats crazy ( who get along with ALL of my friends dogs) and she is a freaking daddy’s girl. She can do no wrong.
@Eva Peron: You are right. I started walking her a mile a day, being the one to feed her, groom her daily for long sessions, play with her, make her do tricks with me. She respects me now. Doesn’t growl at me anymore and treats me like she does Fiance. My son however hasn’t made the effort to do this work. My Fi walks her daily too to get her excersized. When she bit him he was lying down with her going in for a hug. But she continues to charge him. If he walks into the hallway she growls at him.
Thankfully though, my son is very calm about it, and knows exactly how to handle a charging dog. He stays so calm, and is at worst annoyed as hell.
@tksjewelry: To be fair, my son has a D+ in science after a very emotional and heated talk with me. I pay about $1K a month in tuition for his school so the Mac book we were GONNA get him is on hold til grades improve. I think this is why Fiance was ok with no present but dang I gotta get him SOMETHING. last year my son got no gift from me cause I took him on a 3 week vacation to Europe, just us. Fiance tries to spend $ on my boy all the time. I am ALWAYS having to reason with him not to buy him extravegant things. grades are always my fall back ” no he shouldn’t get that.
The first thing I did was have her taken to the vet. All attacks were under my close watch. i was RIGHT next to her when she bit him and i am very confident it is the only reason he wasn’t more seriously hurt cause as soon as she snapped him she looked at me and ducked her head, ears back. She is put in a room so as to never to be alone with him ( and before she got used to me to keep her from attacking me)
But the vet told me to do all the things i have done, ( walk her, feed her, train her, groom her, get her to see i am the alpha and that I provide for her) and she is a completely idfferent dog with me.
ugh, I feel better, gonna bring it up with Fiance when he gets home.
