I went this week and bailed Beauty out of the county jail. Cost $1,995 which she will be paying back. I just could not leave her there. Now we wait for a court date and see what the outcome of all this is. We are tentatively hopeful based on conversations with the investigator, but definitely not out of the woods.
She is moving back home as we await court and we are going to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. I think Gymnast said it best when she got in the car from jail “Maybe this is God’s way of telling you that you need a reset.”
I am all about a reset for both her and myself!
Then a Car Wreck
Oh and then…Gymnast was run off the road and wrecked his car.
And to top it off, he received three tickets for the wreck. Holy cow!
There was a witness who told the police that the man behind him was driving aggressively, but that didn’t matter. Only my son received any citations.
It doesn’t look like the damage is too extensive. When he ran off the road, it was into an embankment; otherwise, it would have probably been fine. Thank goodness for insurance, but he will have to pay a $1,000 deductible. Thankfully, the insurance company did speak to the witness and marked it as a no fault accident.
We will have to see how court goes for the tickets.
Debt Payoff on Hold
Needless to say, debt payoff has been put on hold as I deal with all the “emergencies” going on in my life including the upcoming job loss.
I feel like I’ve circled back to several years ago when it seems like everything that could go wrong, did.
BUT I am not the same person. And I know something amazing is coming. I will not be deterred.
Hope is a digital marketing manager and foster/adoptive single mom to five kids. She has run her own consulting company for over 15 years and took a leap of faith returning to the corporate world in 2021 to a job and team she loves! Hope began sharing her journey with the BAD community in the Spring of 2015 and feels like she has finally mastered the balance between family first and wise financial decisions.
When it rains it pours 🙁 I am glad you’re able to be as positive as possible. I wish things were different, but seeing Beauty and Gymnast get caught up in the legal system makes me sad for them. Regardless of where the blame lies, they are going to be treated much more differently due to the colour of their skin. Sending love to you all as you continue to navigate the next stretch ahead.
