learning to forgive

Thursday, January 16, 2020

good afternoon- Monday - my DH told me that he bought baseball tickets for 6 members of our family without talking to me first. He also told my SIL about the tickets and the event. SIL thought it was great. I am about to go to the gym and he lays the bomb on me. I say to him why did you decide to do this without consulting me first. you are retired and we are no longer getting pay checks. He did not have any answer except a senior moment. I see it differently. He has always had money to do what we all wanted b/c he was still working. We have talked and talked about this. He has apologized and said he would not do this again without consulting me. Have a good day!!

    Now that my husband is retired and we are on a fixed income, we do talk over purchases - especially if they're in any way expensive. Hopefully, next time he will remember to talk with you first.

    Sorry but if we live close enough to a city with a baseball team ( for us it would be Toronto, Ontario which is 18,000 miles away from us) I would be ecstatic. As it is I fly to Toronto once a season to meet my daughter who lives in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. We are a week of game.

    I hope he has learned the lesson.

    Yeah, it's harder when we retire and have to budget for extras. I definitely feel you on this point. Hopefully the workout eased your dress. Have a fantastic day 🎉 🎉
