Quoting Mrs. God of Thunder:" Well, go on the trip then, spend all your money, and come home and be broke and just say, "I told ya so". *shrugs*"


But the EBF baby. :(

That's my original plan but the more I think about my kids being stuck on our f**king stoop all summer and telling my 4 year old I can't even buy him ice cream the more my blood boils.

Quoting Supafly★:" Yes! I an't believe it either. I mean I get why he wants to go but come on. We've been planning it ... [snip!] ... it's a better idea to wait till next year and he's flipping shit like a little baby. My 4 year old handles shit better. :roll:"


:?



That's really odd. I mean, don't get me wrong.... would I want to go? f**k YES. But being irresponsible and not thinking it through, especially with finances just does not sound like fun.

That's what I'm saying. With his horrible spending habits, we'll run out of money halfway through lol. And then what? We'll be miserable in Europe instead of here. And I won't be able to just take the kids and bounce to my mom's because I'll halfway across the planet.

Quoting Supafly★:" So it's a bad idea this May right? I told him maybe we should push it to next July since the weather ... [snip!] ... ect. And he flipped out and said no. I have a feeling that if I refuse, the money for the trip will go toward a divorce. :cry:"


That's a shame. I wouldn't want to be married to such a fool anyway.

He's weird. With something I think he'll flip out about, he'll be totally understanding and okay with. And then something like this, where the solution is OBVIOUS, he acts like a baby.

Yeah, that does not sound fun. Hell, I'm trying to plan a damn 4 day road trip and freaking out about having enough money. :lol:



Does he just... not get stressed when you guys don't have money? Or is he irresponsible, and then freak out when you don't have any?

This but he usually comes up with a solution. But in this case the solution is to NOT GO and he can't see that. Or doesn't want to.

Hmm. I'd sit down with him, and tell him you want to go, lets figure out a budget. Make sure you budget (aside) money for summer activities for the kids. Maybe that will get through to him, having like 2 bucks per day to eat with. haha

That's a good idea. Is there a site I can go to that tells me the cost of like, luggage fees, car service to the airport, ect? If I lay it all out I think that will make him understand that this is a HUGE expense...one that we can't afford right now.
