Need advice from my life coaches..........lol........ Posted by CJ on 9:38:24 am - March 21, 2011
so the kids have been costing us a fortune lately. Sports, sports wear, sports shoes, sports pics, team pics, team fundraisers, sports drinks, admission (for us) to said sporting events, gas back and forth to practices, lunch/dinner on the road, going to away sporting events. Get my drift?
So I was talking to my Dad yesterday telling him I'd be bring oldest DS some snacks for after track practice. (Ds goes to Dad's everyday after school) and I was kinds complaining about all this.
So this morning I stop by his house to drop off that stuff and on the kitchen island there is a check for $500 to me. There is a note that says 'just take it and cash it.' He's already left for work at this point.
I feel conflicted. On one hand $500 would look good in my savings account and on the other hand I'm a grown adult who should not have to depend on my Dad for money. Dad is not loaded with money but $500 is a drop in the bucket for him.
BTW we are not struggling to pay bills or eat. We just don't have tons of extra spending money for things like trips to the movies, eating out and money might get a little tight towards the end of the week. But we're better off than probally 70% of Americans.
Should I keep it or give it back?
