I need your alls help with a conundrum I have. As you know I manage mother in law's banking and she recently took on another bill that she can't really afford. I finally got the paperwork on the bill and I am litterally sick to my stomach with the financing she did. 2300.00 for a lift chair at 23.9% for 3 years. Seriously sick at my stomach. We also recently started giving her $200 a month just so she has enough money to eat and live. Anyway I put my foot down with husband and told him we were not doing another thing for mother in law's house until her dog was gone. The dog pees everywhere and marks everything. Anything you put in that house that nears the floor is peed on. I refuse to put money down the drain. So here is my issue. Paying for the chair out of her billpaying account means she is paying for it. BUT when I am putting $200 in her spending account for her to live on it kind of defeats the purpose. I could just take over the chair loan and pay it off faster saving money. BUT being muleheaded I just refuse to pay for something a dog is going to piss on. I am going to be taking care of this woman for years to come and I dont have an issue with that. I am angry that she didn't call me or husband before making such a large purchase when she knows I pay her bills and husband has much better common sense about money than mother in law. BUT it is her life and as far as she is concerned she will just eat peanut butter for the next three years in order to pay for the chair. Insert eye roll here. Am I just being silly? Should I just pay for the chair and stop being muleheaded?
