You might remember me from last year - my ex-DH took his life in my house and all hell broke loose with the Skids over his meager belongings, even though I personally packed up everything and delivered it to them on his trailer.
I am happy to say that DD6 and I are doing GREAT! We are both in counseling with an amazing therapist. And.....the $30,000 of life insurance that I had on DH when we were married was accidentally kept in place by my HR department after we divorced. I only found out in December when I renewed by benefits package so I just got the insurance payout. DD6 and I have a Spring Break houseboat trip next week and a Caribbean cruise in November booked with it. Of course, when the skids got wind of the money through a mutual friend, they wanted part of it, but I am the sole beneficiary and I own the policy so I told them that I would treat them with the same amount of compassion and caring that they treated DD6 with when their dad died - which is none at all and they weren't getting a cent:)
Meanwhile, BM moved the 21-year old former student from the high school she works at into the house she shared with the skids and got pregnant with him a month after ex-DH died. A 44-year old hag with a 21-year old very immature little boy. I see that going really well, lol. SD20 moved up north for college and because the 21-year old boy toy was "mean" to SS15 - he is now living with his sister. That should be fun for her. SS15 is a mess and has a mean, nasty, filthy mouth towards everyone. All I keep saying is "not my circus, not my monkeys" over and over. Now that I have had real peace in my life, my big beautiful house back just for me and DD6, tons of plans with long-time friends, and even a couple men with money of their own interested, I don't think I'll ever get married again. What I had before was not worth it, lol!
