Okay, so i took my dad to an auction for fathers day- I thought it would be fun he and I, just doing something together, and he likes that sort of thing! I was not planning on buying anything really, just having fun, something different.
Well, we got there and there was this AMAZING 9 piece bedroom set- super, super good quality- I fell in love. My dad said it was amazing too, so I phoned my hubby at work, sent him a few pictures, and he said ” ha, just dont go too crazy.” The set was worth over $6500 brand new, just a furtniture closing sale.
Well, bidding got started, and it went higher than i wanted it too, but my dad said I shouldnt pass on the good deal( not blaming him, Im a grown woman, its our money, so i could have said no) but we ended up getting it for $1900. And since it was king, what we wanted eventually, we didnt have a king mattress. So they had 2 king serta feather amazing mattress( again retail $2200) and we got it for $500. So all in all, it was $2600-$2700 for this amazing mattress and 9 piece amazing furtniture set that we will have for years down the road.
I phoned my hubby, and he was pissed.So i guess $2600 was too crazy? Now, I normally dont do anything like that( well never actually) but he okayed I thought before, and yes a little more than I thought, but thought it was okay. Now, we are going on our honeymoon in 6 weeks, we money put away for it but havent gone on it yet.
So now, I feel so bad. Damn those auctions. I love what I got, but wished I talked to my hubby right then and there about price ( although it was auction so couldnt stop to phone) but feel super, super, bad. I know husband and wife are suppose to talk about these big purchases, and hes upset because we’re saving for a house, and thought we could do without that. We talked about getting new dressers, good dressers since ours always falls apart, and bigger bed eventually, but we never talked about exactly when, but this just a dream set I thought and really good for the price, this would be perfect for what we wanted. Ahh big mistake!
But I shoulsdnt have done it without him. Now I feel super bad, a little upset, and like I let him down. Not saying he does a lot of bad things or anything, but he’s been the one messing up before( not crazy bad things or anything like that) but not checking and gonig golfing for 3 days in a row when we have things planned etc. so the shoes are usually on the other feet..and this is not a good feeling!
Any ideas I can do to makes things better or make it up to him? I know I did wrong here, and I feel super bad, I cant return it, I would be upset if he did the same thing probably most definitly…I know I messed up and this feeling is not fun! I take full responsibilty on this one, a little miscommunication but it was resposnbilty to convey the cost. Should I just take a loss and sell it?
