Would you be mad? (LONG) Ansley2012 Due November 30 (twins); 2 kids; Sterling Heights, Michigan 2116 posts

I'm just wondering if I am legitimately mad or hormonal, maybe both.
SO and I have been going through a really tough time, being pregnant with twins for starters was not our plan. My SO hated the job he was at, so I agreed that he could quit and look for another job. I make plenty to cover us till he gets another job. Also him staying home with our 5 year old saved on childcare. He found a great job and the intended start date was June 10, which was fantastic. Well today they told him that he wouldn't be able to start till August! So now I am stressing and just plain tired, I have 20 hours of OVERTIME scheduled this week. I haven't bought a single thing for the twins. I am so stressed and now we are going to go almost another 3 months with only my income. He picks me up from work, and tells me he is going to his brothers which is 45 minutes away which is fine I'll go with. He tells me flat out no. HE just spent all day over there yesterday. Really, I'm upset to but I would also like to spend some time with him, I've been at work ALL day. I feel like he has no concern on how I feel, I know he is upset in the delay on the start date. How about the fact that I would like a little change of pace instead of my cubicle and the house as well.

I think it's a little inconsiderate. Maybe he feels like he needs to get away since he's staying home now but you do too, you work all day. And you also need to spend time together.
