to feel DH is treating me like a naughty child

Friend rang when I was doing the school run to say Monsoon sale is starting and did I want to come. DH told her that I couldn't because I had too much Open University work to do today. Is true that I am behind with my work but I just feel like he was saying I can't go out to play until I have done my homework. Drawback of having a DH who works (very hard) from home!
So shall I stay home and study or risk disapproving frowns?

You're not missing anything. Just spent an hour in there looking for a nice dress & it was all dross.

Hope that makes you feel better if you do have to finish your homework

bugger the earache, i would go and make a day of it, have lunch and a few glasses of wine then ring him and tell him he will have to pick up the kids!

Order him to stand in the corner facing the wall to give him time to think about what he's said. What's good for the goose is good for the gander!

Enjoy your shopping

As I say to my hubby whilst wagging my finger at him "work, work, work"

It is going to be much more fun to go shopping with a clear conscious.

Go if you want.

But then let him have some Him Time too. Without moaning.

Ahhh, ha ha ha maybe he was trying to help you stay on the straight and narrow and not let her distract you. Have you actually got spare cash in the bank to buy clothes with, if so you should go. If its going on credit or overdraft, you so definately should not go near the place.

I would go to

What UnquietDad said, but with one addition.

Don't moan or expect sympathy from him when you are even further behind with your OU work and you're up at 2am completing a TMA ...

I'd be pleased that Dh took an interest in my studies, but I know I am in a minority

yama Tue 17-Jul-07 13:08:57

I agree with you Helen.

krispie Tue 17-Jul-07 13:11:51

it wasn't up to him to make that decision. he should have said "she's got a lot of college work i think but I'll get her to call you back and let you know"

cheeky beggar!

Well, I've been. I bought a cardigan that I LOVE. Thanks for the moral support guys. Now I need to do some work before the school run
