My Husband ROCKS!

Hmmm so I've been a bad bad lazy blogger lately. I've been reading and responding, but I just haven't had much to say. Sorry about that!!! I'll have to get my rear in gear.



SO why does my husband rock today? I'll tell you why. He rocks because he handles all of our bills and money stuff.... and doesn't get TOO mad at me when I forget to give him receipts from when I stop for coffee in the mornings (oops!)



I freak out when it comes to money. I know it's bad, but I usually don't even look at the bank account. The Hubs will keep me informed of our balance and the things that need paid, but if I look at it myself, and see how many bills we actually have (necessities like mortgage, cars, utilities) I tend to hyperventilate. Also, I'm REALLY bad at paying bills on time... but I have realized my short comings and we decided before we got married that this would be the deal. (Actually I came with a disclaimer: "I don't cook, clean, do dishes, do windows, do yard work, or handle money." I actually do do some of that stuff, but I flat out told him numerous times that I wouldn't and he wanted to marry me anyway. That's LOVE right there, folks!)It works for us, and I can promise you that our marriage wouldn't be as strong as it is right now if he didn't take care of this. I'd be a basket case and he wouldn't be able to deal with me!





So tell me, why does your husband rock?

LOL, that was a funny disclaimer. :) Have you learned to love doing any of those things you said you didn't do yet? ;)

My husband rocks because he realizes that my job is just as important and stressful as his, even though I don't get paid for mine, or leave the house. He also realizes that I do need "breaks" and that will make ALL of us happy! I loved your disclaimer. You should put that on a t-shirt. Have a good day and get one or more of your girlfriends together and go see Mama Mia!!!!! You will NOT be disappointed. That way you won't be able to say "I haven't had a girl's night in so long". Have a GREAT weekend and take care!

I stole your idea and reversed it. Thanks!

My husband deal's with our money as well, and slowly but surely he's teaching me how to do it.

You have a great guy there!

Hi,

Thank you for stopping by. I really appreciate it. Your hubby is a keeper!

I handle the finances in our house. I am anal with money and so far so good.....

Aw, that's sweet of him to handle all that for you. We generally split the money handling 50/50. He does the investments and I handle the day-to-day bills.

My husband rocks because he doesn't chastise me if I really, really, really want that package of Oreo cookies.

My DH is in charge of all the mail and the bills too. It just happened that way, and I love it! I worry about it, but he takes care of it, and I don't mind a bit being an old-fashioned kind of girl!

How cool that your hubby takes on the great responsibility of finances! Your hubby does rock!
