I was fired today

by Jennifer

Long story a little shorter. My husband and I have been married for 8 years. He cheated on me twice. We separated for about 9 months which we didn't have any contact because he moved in with someone. He had no contact with the kids. I sent him pics one day of the vacation I took the kids on and he ended up coming back the next week and then moving back with us a few months later.

That was almost 2 years ago. Since then I had started a new position cleaning a house and buying supplies for this house with my bosses cards. Today I was asked to come into his office so I did. He handed me statements over the last 2 months adding up to $1800. Most of which I see was from my husband using the card for gas or food or chew. When I asked him he said he did because I had been out of work healing from my surgery that I had in November. But the charges are all the way up to this week.

I know have to figure out how to pay him back or have charges against me. We have been living in a hotel since October so I understand the pressure he was under but I can't even look at him right now.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
