My husband’s a total jerk.
Yeah, I’m looking at you, Bean.
Look what’s for sale on Craigslist right now:
That mare, who is four years old, is only $1000.
Here’s a video of her when she had 30 days put on her, back in July. It’s her 10th ride – she’s a little busy with her head, but I think it might be a product of the way she’s being ridden – not that I am saying I could do any better. I’m not trying to bash the rider, just excuse the horse, if that makes sense.
I told Bean if we got her, I’d never ask for another Christmas or birthday present ever again, and that I’d greet him at the door with a gin and tonic every day, and never accidentally get pregnant with any more kids that cost lots of money….
He said no. Actually, what he said is “we can afford to buy her, but not feed her.”
Apparently he thinks silly little things like “paying the mortgage on time” and “buying regular groceries for the kids” are more important than this:
Sigh. Being a grown-up sucks sometimes.
