As if having bouts with horrible Braxton Hicks lately isn't enough, it seems like every tiny or huge thing is just stressing me to the max!
My husband lost his license about 8 years ago when he was still a teenager, DUI & it was a felony because he was under age. He is now trying to get it back, taking the required classes, getting an eval, etc... He is doing good with it, then his dad has to butt in & tell him he's wasting his time doing all this when he can just hire a lawyer to do it all for him. Well WE don't have the upwards of $3000 that it would cost for a lawyer, we can't even afford a midwife for the birth of this baby, but his dad is willing to pay for a lawyer for him. This really pisses me off because my husband has been catered to all his life by both parents where as I have had to work for everything in my life. When he was in college his parents paid all his living expenses, rent, food, EVERYTHING! And back when he did get into trouble as a teenager of course they paid lawyers to make everything go away. It really pisses me off they aren't willing to make him work for something for once.
Then we got a dog back in December, a Chihuahua, and while I love the dog, she is a dog, but my husband treats her like a kid sometimes better than our kids. He thinks we have to take her everywhere with us even if it means that we have to go into a store & leave her out in the 90+ degree heat, he feeds her our food when we can barely afford to feed ourselves rather than making her eat her dog food, and he insists that she sleep in bed with us which causes me to get no sleep & I am afraid it will cause problems once the baby arrives with co sleeping.
Sorry for the vent, I've tried talking to my MIL because she does not approve of his dad paying for a lawyer, etc... but then she will talk to him & he just argues with me saying I don't want him to get his license back, which is the furthest thing from the truth, I hate driving & wish I didn't have to do it all, it's like having another kid you gotta drive everywhere around plus he hasn't been able to get a lot of jobs because of not having a license. If anyone has any coping suggestions please let me know, I'm about to rip my hair out!
