I for one just would like to voice my opinion about the so-called stimulus check. All qualifying individuals get to enjoy this rebate (which is supposedly to jump start the economy) except for the ones who owe child support. Once again, punished for having a hardship. I don't want to hear that if you are behind in child support, then you are a loser and should have to give your left arm to pay it. I have and will still continue to pay back child support on a weekly basis because I was unemployed for six months before finally finding another position. I was lucky to have food on my table during that period (thanks to food banks). I was not sitting at home eating bons bons. I was out there EVERY DAY looking for work. I have had my bank account levied, (which means that I cannot use any bank account while I have an oustanding balance with child support) and my income tax refund was taken. I even called CS to explain my hardship and I was yelled at, they were verbally abusive, degrading, etc. And I called them because I didn't want them to think that I was blowing it off. I will never call again. That CS worker was a complete asshole and made me feel so incompetent. I was already down and out and feeling terrible about losing my job and getting behind every week on support. I was so stressed about this whole situation. Now, my ex is collecting all my refunds, has claimed my son two years in a row so enjoys the extra refund and now he's going to collect his refund, and the stimulus refund for himself, my son and mine. Just doesn't seem fair. I feel like they are kicking me when I'm down. There is no way in hell I'll catch up any time soon. I can really see why some people get so discouraged and end up in jail. (I would never do that purposely) but the system has absolutely no compassion for life's problems that arise. Just venting....

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
