How to deal with husbands hobby...
Moms, can I ask you about your hubbies? Do they have a hobby which takes a lot of time / money?
My hubby is a fan of strikeball (it's a game-play like a war, but with plastic bullets). We keep an arsenal of weapon at home - automats, guns, even wizzbangs (glad it's only toys - but looks like real weapon!). Every time he goes to plays it takes a day or two... And I should change my plans and wait for him... Some times he even flies to other city just to play strikeball with his team - and the result is... nothing but a few scratches on his face and a bag with "war stories" I should listen)).
I understand that "man needs war" and sometimes I even think he is cool like Rembo, but ladies... Spending weeks and hundreds (may be thousands, I dont even know) dollars for game... OMG! What is it for??
Ladies, help me to understand the meaning of hobbies in hubbies life))
My husband is really a cheapskate (he'd say frugal, but I say he's cheap! lol! I'm frugal!) so he really doesn't have any expensive hobbies. He use to buy lots of CDs and basketball shoes but now I have to be sure he gets new shoes or clothing because he won't buy anything for himself until its falling a part. Seriously. Even then he always asks me how much I spent, I'll tell him, but will also tell him he needed it and I wanted to buy him something. He usually doesn't say anything after that. :) Because when it comes down to it, he likes to be thought of and enjoys his gifts as much as I enjoy giving them.
My husband boxes! And he loves it... so I love it for him. He gets up in the wee hours of the morning during the week to go and financially it works just fine :)
