I am going crazy here. My husband just bought a new truck and tractor. We have a smart car, a prius, a toyota truck, a 1929 model A, a 1951 ford truck, a camping trailer, a utility trailer, a motorcycle hauler, a trailer that tows behind motorcycles, a boat with a trailer, and a flatbed trailer. We have tons of photography equipment, cameras, printers, tripods, hd movie cameras, small pocket cameras, computers (desktop, laptop, notebook size), printers, scanners, copiers, e-readers (5 total). We just sold our other house and the money is almost all gone. We have no savings to speak of, at least not enough to get us through a big emergency or medical issue. We need things done to fix up this house and yard. He works a 24 hour shift on Monday so is too tired to do anything on Tuesday then works another 24 hr shift on Wed so Thursday is out and Friday is spent in town all day taking his mother to appointments, grocery shopping and then to dinner. He says he will do things on Sat but ends up on the couch researching things on the computer all day. Sunday he either takes his mother to church or we watch religious programs on tv most of the day. I do all the cooking and cleaning and laundry and animal care. Yes he is allowed to rest as he works hard but I need some help and acknowledgement for what I do too. I also do most of the care for his mother as you all know from previous posts. If he isn't in front of the computer we are out and running all over creation all day which exhausts his mother, even though she only gets in and out of the car a couple of times. I am at a loss of what to do. He asks my opinion but doesn't listen to it or pay any attention to it especially if it isn't what he wants to hear. He has a reason and long explanation for why we need all this stuff. He got angry with me for wanting to trade in the smart car and refused and I had no idea he was not planning on trading in the toyota truck for the new one. He insists its for his mother but she can hardly get in the car let alone a big truck.
