Good mornin' ya'll.
Cindi you sound so discouraged. I know the feeling exactly. Both with staff and with mindless eating. I have been doing that for awhile. I'm pretty sure I am back on track. I hope it lasts. No, I KNOW it will last!
Well I spent the weekend in Vegas at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Had a fantastic time! Courtesy of my daughter. And I love her friends we all hung with. The president of the co (my daughter is the COO), and then a couple my daughter always hooks up with on these trips. The wife is the one who works in the Taco Bell industry the husband is a stay at home Dad. They are all a hoot and a half!
My daughter is definately going through with the divorce. Her hubby blew up both our phones all weekend with texts and voicemail. Begging her to come back, begging me to talk some sense into her. Then she went to see an attorney on Tuesday and man is she gonna get reamed! Her hubby ha**** the lottery. In OR there is a formula for spousal support, child support etc. he hasn't worked for almost 9 years so she will be paying him $5000 a month in alimony for 5 to 10 years (the judge has some discretion on that). One more year and she would have paid him that for life! They will have joint custody, but she still has to pay hubby $1500/mo in child support!!! (that leaves her about $2000/mo take home pay) Then, her half of the interest in the business will be $700,000, cash! Her half of the equity in the house, cars, HHG will be deducted from that, but it won't be much.
She is gonna have to find a much cheaper apartment than she had planned. She will have to furni**** and she is still paying for both kids to go to private school. BUT, she says even if she has to live in a tent and beg for food, it will be worth it to be rid of him!! I had no idea of the stress and mental anguish he has put her through! And God knows what other kinds of abuse! She may have to cash in the IBM stock I gave her, and I may have to give her more. I wish we lived closer, she could live with us for a year or two.
Well, I'm sorry to ramble on about my family problems. I am now in tears so I better go.
Everyone have a fantabulous day!
