No, I’m not talking about the gymnastics at the Olympics.
Although that is my favorite part to watch.
I’m talking about my experience bird nesting.
It’s good, It’s bad, good, bad
I am very upset with Stanley again. I will just say, he is terrible with money. He makes good money but it slips through his fingers. Somehow he managed to deposit and spend a $3000 insurance check that we now owe the contractors who fixed the house after the water leak. He said that he deposited it in the house acct and it was “just absorbed with bills, I guess”.
Are you kidding me?
I will say that I knew this might happen because I know his history like this. He lives by the seat of his pants financially. This was part of my problem with him. It is hard for me to respect a man that is bad with money. It isn’t attractive. Any men that are reading, this is not an attractive quality. Because of his ‘lack of strength’ in this area, I was making a pointed effort to write checks to the contractors for the insurance money when I knew he had deposited it in. This amount slipped by me.
Really. I can understand $1000 just being absorbed, but 3?
I am totally confused.
BAD PART OF NESTING ALERT** I am still dealing with Stanley’s money crap. I know I begged to bird nest and this was my decision. But it doesn’t make me any less annoyed. I will have to deal with this crap as long as our money is intertwined with the house.
In addition my mother walked through our garage last week and remarked that Stanley has some new beer equipment. I swear, I see it and I have to go to my happy place.
(He needs fewer clothes).
Stanley will forever and always be a beer monkey.
Anyway, now I have to come up with 32% of $3000. I came up with 32% of the new a/c on Sunday.
When the nesting has run it’s course and I’m sad for the children, someone please remind me of this negative and the freedom I will have from Stanley’s financial fuck ups.
