As the SO Turns

September 7th, 2019 at 12:46 am

I’d mentioned that the SO would lose it by February of 2020, one my prayer partners said October. Well it looks like I was or could be wrong.

Yesterday he stopped by to drop something off and to let me know he’d be here Saturday to take the plywood down. He’d mentioned he had a rough day. I asked what happened and he responded, “you’re going to say I told you so.” I immediately knew it was the mother. Long story short, he’s been riding around with no insurance on any of the vehicles, including the company vehicles 🤦🏽‍♀️🙄. The mother had allowed the insurance to lapse, and basically the company they were with told him/them no thanks but we don’t want your business. Honestly I didn’t even feel bad, all I could think about was, thank God you don’t live with me, where I would have had to deal with this foolishness.

He mentioned that he went off on her, told her this was why we broke up, because he couldn’t be a man in his house and be responsible, that he’s always late paying bills. She then asked him, why he didn’t tell her, he said he responded that he shouldn’t have to. This also let me know, she hadn’t paid him once again.

Anyway he said she started crying, and he told her to stop 🤬 crying. I knew he was ticked, because when ever she cries, or says she can’t deal with it, he has the tendency to stop talking, walk away and leave. She manipulates him, but yesterday he just didn’t want to hear it. I was quite surprised with his response to her crying, actually I’m still shock that he even told her to shut the you know what up.

He told me he told her he wants everything, control of the business and all bills in the home. He said he also told her, that she wasn’t going to like what he was about to say, but he believe that her stroke (last week) happened for a reason.

Anyway, though, I’m confident I don’t want that mess in my life, I couldn’t help but feel like a proud mother of the son who finally stood up to the bully. The woman is mentally unstable I think, but then again, she has a way of manipulating him, so she must not be too crazy. I’m curious to see if he really takes control of everything.

Just another episode of “As the SO Turns”

In financial news, I managed to sock away some savings yesterday, I’m happy about that. I also only spent $5.85 yesterday on a broom and salt 🧂. I found out that salt keeps the frogs 🐸 off my patio. I can’t wait for the fall, so that I can sit out there, with some music 🎶 and wine 🍷.

Saturday, the only thing on my agenda is removing the plywood and a football game. I had bought season tickets to my alma mater home games, it was $10 a ticket so $60 for six. Not bad, it gives me something fun to do at a reasonable cost. I don’t want to be so tight with things that I miss opportunities.

Now that I’m single, I want to do things that I’ve put off, I’ll admit, I’m a little nervous about going to an event by myself, but at the same time I look forward to it. Next week, the company that I work for has its fund raising kickoff, and then the following week I’ll be attending a free, HR happy hour.

Lastly, my birthday is coming in January, I may have over budget my sinking fund for Christmas (no buying gift for SO), I’m thinking with the left money 💰 I can book a three day cruise 🚢 for my birthday. Or pay down debt 🙄🤦🏽‍♀️. I’ll see.

    I am so happy that SO has finally decided to take control of his life and not allow his mother to control everything. I hope he follows through.
