Yet another sleepless night

Or at least a night with very little sleep. I worked until midnight last night and it was past 1am by the time I finally fell asleep. L however did not sleep at all and woke me about around 5am and then again at about 6am at which point I got up. Here I am now tired and rather grumpy because of lack of sleep and L spending $20 on who knows what (since he says he doesn't remember). I knew he was going to 'get a snack and a drink' at the gas station but not that he would spend all of the money he had.

$20 generally isn't all that much but he has been having more and more issues with reigning in his spending lately. Even grocery shopping has become difficult again since he tends to run out before the next week's grocery budget begins.

In return he starts getting upset with himself over his inability to control this issue and his current 'solution' is to want to live on the street so that he is less of a burden on the family.

As for me, I am just exhausted. Running on not enough (restful) sleep, normal pregnancy third trimester tiredness during the day, a 4year-old that is anxiously awaiting Christmas and somewhat confused by her daddy's action are all starting to get to me.

That all does sound very exhausting. I hope things improve very quickly.

I am so sorry you are going through this extra challenging time. Know that you are cared for and please "hang in there" as best as you can! (not very helpful, but it's what I've got at the moment) Maybe you can set up a boundary with L about not waking you at certain times so that you can get the sleep you so need? Your health is so important, too!
