    Hon, your marriage is a partnership right? You would step up to the plate and take on extra duties at school for supplemental pay if it were possible. He may be seeing that he is NOT doing enough and is defensive. I like that you walked away for him to think. Hang in there sista!

    That last post falls under the Clint Stump theory of "You can't win for losing". Sorry to hear this is starting back up to bite you in the arse.

    So what set him off? Just his guilty feelings? Rats, the ole, "this may not be the best time to bring this up but..." situation re: his baiting you. Financial disagreements are the worst, especially when it looks like there is no near solution. What did he do before he became a nurse? Many are not doing what we are trained for/talented at/dream of doing. Maybe it is time to do a 180.

    -Feeling guilty, yes...and feeling sorry for himself.

    -He is an excellent nurse, but got his RN late in life. When he applies, he isn't even being offered interviews for hospital jobs due to age and lack of experience. BUT, he should be applying for everything available, and he is not. (No I do not say this to him.)

    -He is sick this weekend and so acting like a bear due to that.

    Bah, if you share facts about the financial situation and he TAKES it as a reminder of being picky about jobs and such, that's his problem, not yours.

    Well, I hope he feels better anyway .

    Love the hair! I think you had the color refreshed after Thanksgiving so I had a slightly lighter color in my mind.

    I wonder if (schedule allowing) you moved bill-day to Saturday, it might be less stressful so you have a day of rest before Monday.

    When we met I was using a lighter color with a more reddish tint. You are not the only one who plays with hair color. lol

    I was procrastinating on the bills because I knew there would not be enough money. Friday evening would be better still. Then I would have 2 days to recover.

    My sister, 50, got her RN last June. She quickly got a job as head(only) RN in a senior care facility. Maybe your husband can look in that direction.

    My husband would not be happy in that setting. Right now he is in a prison hospital. He is trying for a full time position there, but really wants to be in a hospital.

    Wt. 226.2 (Up due to added sodium or gym workout)
    FBS 95 (Normal but Up. Exercise?)
    ketones Trace to med.

    Well. I made it through "hump day" clean. Day 5 seems to be a watershed day for me, so hopefully this means I am on my way to long term clean eating. I figure if I can make it through an emotional day like yesterday, I can make it through anything.

    I am doing a sodium experiment that I explained in depth in the EMF thread. Phinney and Volek "The art and science of low carb living" recommend 5000mg of sodium from diet and bouillon or broth.

    Today is the first Monday of the month, so super long day for me , but I am feeling good.
