I was blessed to stay at home from April to October. I had my son in July.
We managed very well on hubby income, and I was receiving unemployment,etc. HE initially wanted me to stay at home w/our son, but I told him in April that money was going to decrease over time, and I’d have to go back to work eventually.
Well of course money started to decrease, and I told hubby I was going to look for a job. I acquired a temporary P/T job in October, and its slated to end this week.
Well hubby has been increasingly making unnecessary remarks about me working P/T, and us being “broke”… etc. I have jobs lined up for temp jobs and he even makes comments about those… ” It isn’t permanent?”.. Instead of him thanking me for doing all I can to keep income flowing, he belittles me, like I’m not doing anything.
I manage all the money, and even though I’m working P/T, the bills are still getting paid.. ON TIME…we still have food to eat, gas in both cars, car pymt is being paid ON TIME we aren’t behind in anything except medical bills, but they can wait for now.
I’m online looking for jobs everyday, networking,etc. He knows this. Its just frustrating. Its not enough that I take care of our son most of the time (hubby works 11-8). I’m the one making sure the house is clean, food is cooked, clothes are washed, bills are paid, babies needs are taken care of.
I obtained a MBA degree March 2007, well even though I have the degree, I don’t exactly have any relative experience. All I have is Customer Service/Collections experience. I have applied everywhere.. you name it! Then I think some people “assume” that since I have a Masters, I won’t take a low paying job.
Its hard out there, and hubby is not making it any easier.
Well I meant to say, that I think that most companies think I’m “overqualified” because I have a Masters, even though my experience says underqualified.
My resume has been tweaked and tweaked. I’m having a career counselor look @ my resume again today. I’ve even been applying for jobs at Walmart,etc.
I’m upset because he said he would support me, but yet hes giving me all these unnecessary remarks about me working P/T, etc.
