Short end of the stick

April 26th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

I'm not sure but I'll know after I balance all the accounts the end of the month, but it seems like I am getting the short end of the stick.
Seems like I am spending more money than the BF on the home. We agreed that we would split everything but for some reason I don't think he is giving me enough or maybe I am spending too much.

The month ends pretty much on Friday for me, I'll pay out all bills and would receive my last check. He gave me $200 but I still think something is wrong. We will see

On a different note his daughter is driving me crazy, she is 17 and yet has a mind of a 8 year old. For starters she will not clean up behind herself, which drives me nuts, since I am a neat freak. She is scared to sleep in the dark, so all the lights are on as well as the tv, and she is afraid to stay home by herself. Ridiculous!

We will definitely sit down and talk things out after I review the books

    My suggestions for sleep issues: TV on a timer and a nightlight. Smile And she'll sleep better (uninterrupted) if the TV is off most of the night. That is what I do. Smile Totally madaptive sleep issues, I know!

    I too do the TV on a timer thing, if I feel a night of overthinking and insomnia coming on!

    Good luck on getting your fair share from the BF. Sounds like he's more oblivious than anything, so hopefully he'll chip in more if you lay out the situation for him.

    Yeah, the TV on a timer is a good idea that will at least lead to some power savings and less disturbance for others. Still, it would be nice to have SOME insurance that a teenager can at least clean up after herself. A toddler is one thing (as I gaze across the living room at the blocks and stuffed animals) but I think that a teenager needs to buck up and pitch the heck in!
