Okay... short, Reader's Digest version of what's going on:
My bff bought me a ticket to a concert at a venue about 3 hours away for my birthday... the show wasn't until last night...
yesterday afternoon, i got some money for my nanny duties... not much money, really.
I spent 80 dollars of the funds on paying off my brother in law for my DH's laptop... leaving me with approx. 40 dollars... I then went to get my DH a couple of cheeseburgers from a burger joint... leaving me with about 35 dollars... which i was fine with... that'd get me food, soda, and etc. for the evening, and i -thought- i'd have money to spare...
i was dead wrong. I woke up this morning at my bestie's house sick as a dog. I didn't drink or eat anything that was out of the ordinary so i knew it wasn't food poisoning. I charted my temp (which was 101.3) and spent the most part of the morning and early afternoon bowing to the porcelain god. Finally, my other bff was ready to start the 3 hour car ride back home...
at this point, i still had 20 dollars which i thought was a good deal....
i figured i was done being ill for a while because i hadn't eaten anything all day... just had water and tums...
i was wrong. about 40 minutes into the trip home, i felt it hit me again - had to make my ride pull over so i could be sick.... i then asked her to stop at the next gas station so i could buy a little bottle of mouthwash, some pepto bismol, and a sprite. I guess I'm just dumb when it comes to money... but those 3 items ended up coming to about 10 dollars...
i was still okay, because i was coming home with 10 bucks - enough for my "DH" to go grab some dinner with since i was in no mood to be around any type of food....
The pepto unfortunately didn't work.
what should have been a 3 hour car ride, turned into a 4 and a half hour long journey just because we had to keep stopping for me... i ran out of sprite, trying to keep myself hydrated so i bought 2 more bottles which came to approx. 5 bucks
i texted the DH and let him know what was going on, and he was very kind and understanding - its not my fault i got sick, right?
i get home, and come running to bow to the porcelain god once again...
i brushed my teeth, wiped my face, and went in to give him a hug (it was our first night apart since our wedding - i missed him)
he sat there like a rock... and now, he's refusing to talk to me other than via text messages.
i asked him what was wrong, and i got a text from him full of expletives because i "spent what little money we had left."
Now, what i ask you ladies is this:
Should I throw it in his face that we would have -more- money, if i hadn't bought him a laptop?
oh, he had dinner... he just wanted to make me cry i think.... i came into our room and went to bed early... and this morning he's acting like nothing is wrong... i didnt even get an apology? men are confusing.
And men say us women are bad...they do the exact same thing we sometimes do to them!

I've been on JustMommies for four or five years (I lurked for a long time). I love all you ladies so very much!
Sounds like my SO at times. I think it's pretty silly of him to get a laptop and get mad at you when most of your money was you getting stuff to feel better. You probably would have had to buy the stuff if you were at home too... so yeah, I'd be just a bit ticked off at him
Does he not have his own money? Honestly from now on, I'd make him use his money to pay for his laptop, there is no reason for him to be upset w/ you for getting sick and having to pay an arm and leg for items to make you feel better at random gas stations. I hope you feel better soon and he grows up and speaks to you face to face instead of through txt.
