A Day of Celebration

Postby CCR » Fri Jun 22, 2012 5:39 pm

After 362 bi-monthly child support payments that consumed 35-65% of my income, the last one was made today.

I thought about a case of beer (I really don't drink) so I bought a chocolate cake instead.

I'm using the first few months of "saved" money to take the kids on a cruise.

Feels wonderful to be free of the system, which has been abusive and punitive.

Nice! After the cruise, keep the same amount going into savings or investments for improving your life and the lives of your kids. Rock on!

Congrats!

I remember that day too.

Took all the kids on an all inclusive trip to Punta Cana.

Was also going to get a tatoo. An American flag. Two meanings. I am a patriotic guy. The other was to represent MY freedom from court orders tying me to the NJ. I am not a tatoo kind of guy. After some thought I did not do it and I am glad at this time years later. Wrong reason.

Party on! I was planning a big party for when my alimony terminated, but it came early when she got remarried, so I had an impromptu block party with something like 14 pizzas.

Looking forward to the end of CS next, will take my kids on a trip, sounds like fun.
