The light at the end of the CS tunnel...
As we all now GWR..aka SS has aged out of the child support system and Beaver has suffered a reduction in CS to the tune of $600 per month.
Now for the last 11 years I have been supporting our family despite not receiving any CS for my two kids and paying just about all of my children's expenses on my own. DH was too busy paying Beaver her CS and alimony, the marital debt and of course attorney debt since they were in court almost every year.
Now...finally DH has paid off all of the attorney debt, marital debt, alimony stopped and he is down to $500 per month for CS. Woohoo..finally the money he works hard for is now coming into our household.
So...on Saturday DH told me to get my purse and get in the car. He then told me we were going to go look at all the SUV's I have been researching and we would see if we could buy one this weekend. I was currently driving a 10 year old SUV I bought from my mom when someone totaled my DD's car a few years ago. DH gave DD his car and I gave DH my car and I got my mom's old SUV.
DH said it was high time he got to spend money on his WIFE and not his ex-wife. So...after looking at SUV's all day...we came home with the showroom floor Honda Pilot. We will have this paid off by the time I quit work in 3-5 years.
DH was so happy to be able to buy something for me...for once and not spend all his money on his ex wife or her debts.
