I have been holding this in for a while and I just need to vent.
I have to give some background so this maybe a little long....sorry. When I first moved in with my husband, I left my home, country, friends, career and some family. I had never seen his house...so when I arrived I was shocked. It looked like some kind of student house, their was not door knobs, light fixtures, old paket wood floor that was coming up and cracked... old paint, no curtains or anytihng and the furniture was stuff he made like the tv stand he made out of old scrap wood...
Now mind you my husband is 43, professional makes good money but you looked at the house and would think much differently. He did redo all the plumbing and electricity and well you can't see that and oh he did put in a nice new bathroom.
However the house needs work and I said either we finish it or we move because I can' t take it. After two years of him deciding to move or not we choose to stay.
We have some extra money and he has vaction time coming up.... he wants to go on vacation and I want to stay home and finish doing some things in the house, IE paint and a few other projects.
He states he needs a vacation and I feel the house should be a priority and I don't want to go on vacation! I want him to take the time off and put into the home.
Next year we are doing a huge remodel and taking out a new mortage to do so, So the deal was we use our money we got for all the little projects and do it this year before the big remodel.... so far not much is getting done because yeah he works and only has the weekends...
What do you all think? Am I being unreasonable???? I have been here for 5 years now and I feel really frustrated.
Want to add he has been her over 10 years.... so he never made it a priority but more like his little fun project!
