So my husband, currently laid off 3 mos, spends a TON of time w/his BF (male-also laid off, 2 yrs now) They play call of duty...he would wake us up texting wanting to come over and play/hang...drive me nuts! Well he's been hanging out w/my cousin & his gf (ultra clingy-my cousin has a short leash) or w/another couple who have 1 kid but loving grandparents who take the boy semi-frequently. Now we have 2 kids and no close family for us to unload children on to, they are ours 24-7/365... Chuck (the friend) has been doing "adult" things (BBQs, campouts, hiking, etc) where he wants my husband to come with and to essentially dump me with the kids. Unfortunately for him, I have been pulling in more hours at work and am not available for all of his "adult playdates" But he invites my husband "knowing" I'm working... I say "knowing" because if he had half a brain and listened to any convo @ my house he would KNOW when I'm working! Hell, all he'd have to do is look @ the calendar :) He's been around long enough he should know better... he once lived w/us for almost a year! He has never had, or atleast invited Kendall (hubby) to this many events! My husband is a homebody and isn't down for a whole lot of action anyhow...I'm rambling...
Today, Chuck & Kendall were supposed to go donate plasma to make some extra $ Chuck had been bugging K- about going w/him to motivate him to go more... Chuck flakes (typical anymore!) and said he was having lunch w/his parents. The whole reason they were supposed to go early was cuz I was working @ 3p! So later, he texts K- asking him if he wants to go camping for the night...to which K- replies "I have the kids until 10" then Chuck starts back peddaling..."oh I thought Erin was off... you probably won't want to bring the kids..." my husband doesn't have a problem taking the boys camping alone, they'll sleep in the truck...no big deal, they both LOVE camping! (ages almost 5 & 21 mos) Kendall tells him "the kids will be fine" ♥ love him, he's soo funny! So idk, whatever. I don't have a problem with him taking the kids. If he doesn't find it appropriate then they'll make their own camp somewhere else and he doesn't drink too much when he's got my boys, especially outside! So that isnt my issue... MY issue! is the stupid ass Chuck who thinks he can go inviting my Mr. Mom husband to all these "NO KIDS" events! If he wanted to go 1x/wk to a poker night, or on a hike, whatev. But the frequency and horrible timing of these events, and they are ALL NO KIDS! His approach is just horrid! It makes me feel like he is trying to get himself a single cronnie! Cuz if my husband partook in all of these child free events, that's exactly where he'd find himself! What a shocker it would get him! HA! Ok...you get my husband all to yourself, he can take your couch he starts riding w/you like you want... then he has the kids all the time anyway, cuz we don't want our kids living n daycare and I sure as hell aint paying noone to watch them while he sits on his ass soaking up unemployment...then they'd be stuck at HIS house, HAHAHA OMG...picturing it makes me laugh... IDK...I just hate him, stupid single asshole!
