Okay folks, cross your fingers, we had an acceptable offer on the house and signed the papers accepting the offer yesterday. They still have to do a home inspection and all that jazz, but the house really is in good shape. Escrow is set to close on March 26th, which ironically is Small Son's birthday.
Hubcap as usual was his normal putrid self. He just discovered that I had raided the equity line after he did, and he was all pissed about that. I looked at him straight in the face and said, "what, it's okay for you to take money, but not okay for me?" He put his head down and mumbled "I guess not". I'll tell you, I'm getting more and more sick of the whole thing.
Last night he called and asked me not to take anymore money out of the equity line, then proceeded to tell me that I had taken out more money. I said, maybe, but I also didn't have any money and I needed to feed the kids...He once again said his infamous phrase to me, "I didn't ask for this, not my problem"...fucker. He gives me $90.00 per month for two kids...and it's not his problem. Well maybe not. But it is his problem if his kids need to eat or have new jeans..but evidently that's not "his problem" either. I know I shouldn't get so angry but I do.
I'm trying to get my head around cutting him off, finalizing and all that jazz. It's much harder emotionally than I expected it to be. Oh well.
