I feel like I need to clarify something from my “Submission” post. Although it does piss me off that J is saying “no” to the vehicle. I do understand why he is. He is not controlling…He’s just way more financially conservative than I am. Submission is a bible concept, and one that I never thought I’d agree with, but in our house, it really does just go towards big purchase things for us. He would move South in a heartbeat, but because I don’t want to move away from my family again, we are staying in WI. We absolutely have a partnership, he does hear me out and I know that he does not want to have to tell me “no”. He would love to be able to give this to me and for me to be able to be a stay at home wife/Mom, unfortunately, it’s just not happening on a teacher’s salary in WI with the debt that we have.
The funny thing is, except for one 0% interest card, not of our debt is credit card debt. This would have been a non-issue if I was still doing daycare in Tomah. I was the breadwinner then and I’m definitely regretting my decision to move the daycare to West Salem. The commute wasn’t fun, especially in the winter, but I had loyal daycare parents and my Mom right there to help. I was much happier work wis than I am now. I have had 3 different calls about daycare in the last week and hopefully, I’ll get all of them and he will change his mind before the car is sold.
