It's really not that much money, is it? Not enough for the car payment, not enough for propane....but for me it's huge. DH got paid. And instead of his incessant begging for money for gas and cigarettes, HE GAVE ME $200. Now I know that was what I had borrowed from the credit card for him, and he had said he'd pay it back, but if I had a dollar for all the times in the last two years he said that, well, we'd have a much bigger house :-)

Not only did he actually pay me back, but when I told him that I was going to use it to pay DD's summer camp tuition, he FILLED UP MY GAS TANK SO I WOULDN'T BE SHORT. Can you believe it????

DD has gone to the same bible camp every year since she first came to live with us. She loves it. And they are pretty strict there, so we feel like she is well supervised and in good hands. And it's very cheap when you consider that she's gone for a week, and they supply food and fun and supervision....well, there was no way that I was going to have her missing that because we were short of cash....I was so thrilled that he gave me that money.

It's the first money he's given me in two years. I can't begin to tell you how that feels.
