Terrible day. For 3 weeks now I have asked my boyfriend to call about getting our kids on his insurance since it is cheaper than going through my college. I didn’t want to nag so about every three days I reminded him. I even wrote on a note card what he needed to ask (I can’t call since we’re not married and not on his account). He still hasn’t done it! So he has me all excited thinking he is going to buy my ring this weekend. Then I got this ridiculous thought in my mind…If he can’t even call about insurance when DIRECTIONS ARE WRITTEN OUT for him….then how in the world is he going to buy a ring?! Then in my head I’m thinking…fine if he doesn’t buy it then I’ll just give up and say forget it…and just never ask again..ha yeah right….
So he walks in the door tonight and I’m in the worst mood ever. Dinner didn’t get in the oven til late and the hungry kids are turning on me. Here I am already mad at him for a crime he didn’t commit. He asks what’s wrong and I say..did you call the insurance? he laughs and says…well I thought about it…but never did ( ok he works construction so can’t always use the phone)
So i got really mad…BUT I resisted the urge to bite his head off since it’s not his fault I’m in a bad mood. Plus he hasn’t let me down yet. But he let me down a few months ago with this whole thing…so I’m already anticipating the worst.
There that’s my vent.
Anyone ever feel this way? I’m so irritated and annoyed. What should I do to avoid killing him!? (not that I would lol)

YES! I came home today and Fi is in a terrible mood. All I did was make dinner, sit through him being sulky, and now I’m on WB in my room. It’s okay; sometimes you need to just act like you live apart from him.
Now get in off that ledge–you’re letting all the cool air out! You think I’m made of money that I can give AC to the whole neighborhood? 🙂

ugghhh! my brother works in construction and i swear if my SIL didnt take care of everything that requires time and paperwork nothing would ever get done. sadly the only thing that does seem to get him into gear is to very sternly (just short of yelling) tell him off. its tough if they dont have an office/access to phones & computers like an office worker so vent away
oh and is it a full moon because i was pretty short with hubby 2 days ago – told him i wasnt superwoman and he needed to step up because i have a lot of work stress at the moment while hes been sitting at home planning his day trips of europe while im in the euorpe office working – i told him i might leave him at home

@miss longcoat- Ur last statement made me laugh! Thanks
@eloping- The good news is I just found out he has the whole three day weekend off. Maybe..just maybe he’ll get some things done. The kids and I are visiting my dad out of state for the weekend. Hopefully he takes advantage of it…Ugh
haha I don’t know about the full moon….Definitely going to have to check that tonight!

My Fiance works in a job where it is hard to use the phone, too, so we sometimes fight if he is not able to get stuff done when he is supposed to. I have to constantly remind or text him throughout the day to ask if he did something when it’s important, and then he gets short with me. Keep nagging him. Eventually it will get through his brain that once he does it, you will stop nagging!

I feel the exact same way right now.
Fiance and I bought our place in November of last year. We had our home inspection done, and found there are plumbing issues that Fiance said he’d have no problem fixing. We took possesion in January, so he said he wanted to wait until the weather warmed up, becuase he had to crawl around in the crawl space to fix it. It is now September- 9 months later and it’s still not done! I asked him again today when it would get done, after nagging him all summer, because we’re moving back into the cold months, and he said he can’t do it for at least a month because it’s hunting season!
I’m so livid right now, I want to scream! I don’t have any advice for you, just know that I sympathize with you, it can be so frustrating!
