Hubby just doesn't get it sometimes!

{Colorado Springs, Co}

I was recently gifted a new laptop. It isn't the newest model, but I love it!

Here's the dilemma. I need something to carry it around. A way to protect it. My plan to to keep searching thrift stores and yard sales until I find what I'm looking for.

My hubby says to just go buy a protector for it and a shoulder bag. Well, that would cost over $100! That's just plain crazy. Why spend $100+ for things for a free computer? I have a nice messenger bag that I'm using now. Why can't that work?

Why should I spend money on all of these accessories? {he also suggests that I buy a car charger and a laptop table with fan} Do I need these things? I don't think so. I can charge it at home, or the library. {where I use the free wifi}

Which brings us to why we don't get wifi at home. Another added expense. I can very easily use wifi at the library or McDonald's etc, and not add another monthly bill to our finances.

He says I'm far too practical.

I think I'm far too smart, and don't like to pay for what I can get for free or for a reduced price.

No matter how hard I try, he will never get it.


  1. Don't give up on him, some of it will soak in. My hubby is the same way, but I've noticed little things that has begun to make sense to him that he has started to practice just in the last couple years and we've been married 20 years.

  2. Thanks! I'm trying to stay positive on this issue. He has come a long way, but theres still work to do! he he
