so colleen's not coming out next month. i called her with info on the plane ticket and stuff....

and she was choking up a bit, and said she'd have to call me back after she talked things over. she called back like, 5 minutes later and said she wasn't going to be able to make it and pick evie up.

i didn't remind her that she had to drop evie off too, and pay for evie's ticket. and she was just assuming that evie was going to be out there all summer, so she wouldn't have to pay day care.

it broke my heart. i hate this.

i'm going to go into evie's school tomorrow and tell them that evie's going to be out six weeks, and i wasn't going to pay for those six weeks. if they didnt' like it, then i wasn't going to be bringing her back there after this term expired in may. that'll get evie out to see her mom, and nobody's going to be out the 600 bucks. it's a dangerous game, but hopefully, if push comes to shove, i'll be able to enroll her in one of the other daycares around. a pretty stupid reason to switch daycares, but they're not really leaving me any choice.

so, what? you're paying and taking evie out there even though it was part of the agreement that she come pick her up? that's, um, nice of you...

is your agreement or whatever with her (concerning evie and travel) written down anywhere?

no, she's picking up evie and taking her there. i think i have to go pick her up from arkansas (which is okay, i did it last time) but i think she's not going to pay for the ticket like she did last time.

yes, the agreement is written down, in the divorce settlement, but what's NOT written down is who pays for daycare. i don't feel like being out $540 for the weeks that evie's away, plus the plane ticket to pick her up, plus i was planning on flying out there after 3 weeks to visit.

i think i'm missing something. is it that she can't afford her tickets (x2) and evie's ticket plus the day care?

right. she can barely afford her bills, let alone airline tickets.
