So...apparently I find myself out of one shitty situation and right into another. Wait, slash that, I find myself wading in one pool of crap, only for another to get dumped right on top of me.
So on top of all MY stress I'm feeling, I'm feeling Noah's and not to mention my own. Why? Because her dad is being even MORE of a pain in the ass than usual. See, yeah, we're appreciative he's giving her some money to live here. But that's trust fund/child support money, which is what he's obligated to pay. Can't really say it's TOO good...
...Seeing that rent/utilities ends up about 1300 bucks...and she gets 1600 a month. So that leaves 300 for groceries and stuff. She also has a job which made things easier.
And now it's all about be taken away and we're about to end up at NADA. See, she's already put in her 2 weeks notice to her job because her school, Le Cordon Bleu, doesn't consider working Dominicks (grocery store) deli to be a 'culinary-related job' so it doesn't count toward her externship, so she had to leave. Sadly, her dad decided to be a dick, pulling that 1600 he's giving her SIMPLY because I live here. Despite the fact that now I HAVE to...since I'm going to school come Monday.
Cost of living has gone up, and our money has been snatched RIGHT from below our feet. Fuck. So pretty much, our living expense will be the 120 or less that I get every 2 weeks from my child support. Good luck on that sustaining us both.
On top of that, he's beign a dick in general, Noahs' father. Going ahead and telling her sisters not to be like her, not to go to some 'vocational' school, and go to a real college. (Apparently real college = dorm life), and taking the child support of her OTHER two sisters away from her mother, which would pretty much force her out of the home that her mom and dad built togehter, y'know, the place they built their memories with the kids.
Meanwhile, her middle sister's been in a 2nd accident recently. First one was a snow-related incident that wasn't entirely her fault. Now...she was rushing to school not even a WEEK after getting her car back, and crashed it into a pole, and got a "concussion" and "a few fractured ribs." And what about her punishment for driving that retardedly fast? Oh, just her father paying off the state trooper. As well as him paying the $45,000 to get the car repaired. What kinda car? Lexus IS Convertable. For a freaking 16 year old who only JUST got her licence. And yet he's been wanting to not pay Noah the money he already owes her, because as it turns out, that 1600 is only PART of what he actually was supposed to pay. He had been withholding. Mind you, this is court mandated.
Love how she's getting the shaft and everyone is suffering. Woo...freaking...hoo.
The dark clouds seem to be ready to brew into a storm...
