Well he just asked me again today. I didn't respond to him the first time.
This is what I told him today:
I am preparing with the loss of alimony income in the next 3 weeks. That's a big chunk of my budget that I will need to make up monthly. I'm struggling as well. There is $200 in the kid's account available. I will try to help with my half of reasonably priced extra curricular activities the kids may do.
