Wow hope every one had a great holiday, I've been a little busy so I haven't had time to post. But here is the update:
First I gave my mom her Christmas gift which was a 8 x 10 picture of her grandkids as well as great grands and their signature. When I handed her, her gift, she responded " is that it for my Christmas?" I thought what an ungrateful so and so. I know I shouldn't have those thoughts but my mom is always looking for money. I can't tell you the last time I got a Christmas or birthday card from her let alone a gift. Even on my birthday, we go out to the buffet she likes and I pay. I think the last time I got a gift from her for Christmas I was 13

Moving on, next my BF gave me a MK watch (approximately $200) a snuggle (@ $20) and Chanel Chance (@ $140). Nice gifts right? But here is the kicker, I said to him lets set a limit on this year's gifts his response he doesn't set limits on his woman. That's fine and dandy because I did, and didn't spend more than $120 on all 4 gifts. Now comes yesterday he says to me he needs some money ( I'm thinking he is joking). So I end up first spending. $30 to put gas in his car. Next we go to his grandmothers and he ask me to take him to the liqueur store, I end up spending 30 more dollars. My thought is I'm going to pay you back for the gifts you bought? If so take them back to the store. This is crazy. Now today he comes here huffing and puffing because his kids asked for money to get their hair done. My thought, you just gave the oldest one $250 for Christmas why is she asking for money. Long story short, I'm not getting any nails done

His problem is, he wants people to believe he has all the money, well I don't and I refuse to have him nickel and dime me out of the few dollars I have saved

Lastly to end on a good note, my dad gave me $150 today so I can add this money back to the funds I transferred from my challenge

    Wow is right, I don't even know what to say about your situation. I know this is mean but I'd tell the boyfriend to get a second job or make do with what he has. As for your mom....I don't know...I tend to smooth over not so nice moments with my mother knowing that she is the only one I have and she won't be here forever but I know that not everyone sees things the same way. I hope it all works out for you and you are able to save the money you hope to and meet all your goals in 2012.

    Thanks CCraw, I agree totally with you. Bf definitely needs a second job or cut back on his spending and as far as my mother goes, I'm done, just looking over her and her rude comments/ ways

    Sorry to be blunt but your boyfriend IS nickle and dimeing you. $30 at the liquor store and he can't fill his gas tank either? Sounds like there are some serious issues you have there. Is there a reason you don't just tell him no when he asks for money? Sounds like he knows you will just give it to him regardless of how you feel.

    I don't mean to be rude in any way....just stating what I see. I really hope it works out for you!

    As far as your mom goes....probably not much you can do. Sorry to hear she is that way. Frown

    Sorry, your BF sounds like a douche and a tool. You'd be better off without him. Why do women put up with this crap? I'd rather be single and happy than attached and miserable. I just don't get it.
