so we were suppose to send the kids home the 26th because he won't be home from work til the 17th but now BM says she needs them on the 23rd because that's when she took off work. Oh and she says now she needs them to fly into Billings instead of Denver because she "thinks" her car is messing up and can't make the drive, she said DH should have bought round trip tickets but obviously since she is totally changing the whole plan its a good thing he didn't buy roundtrip. she sent me a link to some flights she found with an hr lay over in Denver then to Billings that leave Dallas in the morning and get into Billings at like 8 pm.. okay but then when could DH get a flight home? so basically he's spending 600$ on tickets and gonna have to be gone for like 24 hrs just to take them home. Ugh.
ontop of having to pay this months CS .. which will pretty much be his whole check.
its insane that he spends 1200 on plane tickets to see them for 4 weeks a year.
I would have said its too late. But that's just me. I'm sorry you are dealing with this and sorry you have to spend that much in tickets. I think that should be divided in half and that she pay the other half.
yeah I think she should pay too but that would never happen, she said "he makes 20$ an hr more than me he can afford it" I REALLY wanted to say he makes 22$ an hr so does that mean she only makes 2$ an hr ? and she should get a new job.. but I didn't because I have to be nice and not "rock the boat"
Oh and did I mention that I found out last night that Ethan missed so much school in kindergarden he had to go to transitonal first, not because he wasn't ready but only because they couldn't pass him with so many days missed... how hard is it to take your child to school?!
DH is constantly telling that school is VERY important.. he made her put his name on their school stuff so he gets a copy of everything now, so we'll know how many days he misses instead of just relying on what she says.
I really hope she moves back, even though I'm sure it will more drama but at least we can do something about the situation.
she thinks he is made of money, we have bills like everyone else, and it seems like he is rich but when ya take out all the bills, the insurance, the CS, and taxes we're comfortable enough for me to stay home, but its not like we can splurge or have extra money to blow every month.
we used our tax refund to pay for the tickets here, so its gonna be tight sending them home.
He hasn't talked to her about any of this since he's been at work, he gets home today and I'm sure she will call.
Yikes. Even when my oldest DSS was living in Richmond with his mom we were responcible for getting him there and she was responcible for bringing him home unless agreed otherwise. We ended up always meeting in the middle at Lexington Va.

well tonight when I showed him the flights, which are now like 350 a person (not including his trip back) he said NO WAY is that happening.
He agreed to still take them back on monday but he said he is flying into Denver not billings and she better find a way there since he can get the tickets for 100$ a person.
she threw a fit of course and said she didn't have the money to drive there and blah blah and he better send the CS before then..
he always sends her the CS out of his first check so I don't know why she was worried about that, he said he would also send her an extra 100$ to help with gas since she's "sooo broke"
I told him to make it clear to HER that I should not be in the middle of all this, I don't have anything to do with their arrangements and she needs to talk to HIM and not me.
