I was never in doubt that you’d somehow come up with some form of workable compromise that your husband can go along with. Setting aside a little “mad money” you’d normally use to treat yourself to that extra coffee, soda, or some decor item you’d like to have for the home might seem galling, but when you’ve sent the help overseas and he discovers it later but finds out you took the personal sacrifice of your own day to day affordable amt of “mad money,” LOL, boy he’ll soften.
