Yet another reason to move to Canada

When Ron and I seperated, it went way up, when we moved to New Brunswick, I wrote in and told them that I was living with my husband again (it's suppose to go down), well they never stopped giving me the "seperated" amount, and after another larger then should be payment today, I called in because thinking eventually it's going to catch up with me and I'm going to be owing a lot of money, and with me not working, that wouldn't be good.
I was told because we changed are status in the middle of the year, that I'm still entitled to that "seperated" amount until the end of the year..............
YEAH FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was so worried that Christmas was going to be tight this year (again with me not working) and with these 2 extra payments I'll be able to get Ron a gift also, and donate to the usual charities this year.
I can't even begin to explain how relieved I am.

You're in PEI, what part? I'm in New Brunswick now. I love PEI, I can't wait to go back there, hopefully this summer.
sparkys2boys replied: I'm in Summerside!!!! Wow, we live super close to one another... especially with the bridge now!!! When where you here on the island last???
It was about 6 years ago, the last time we lived in NB. We went to Charlottetown and surrounding area.
Nice area also.. PM me sometime and we could chat!! Do you have family here??
Gosh no. We're military so all my family is back in Ontario.
Ahhh, sorry. I didn't know that. I'm still new and getting to know people. How long have you been in N.B. for now?
don't be sorry.
Last time was 8 months, only because of course. This time we're expected to be here longer, and we just got here in July.
wow, how old are your kids?? Do they find it hard, do you, moving alot? I'm not sure I would be able to do it, but I guess you do what you have to. By the way I'm Sherri, mom to Logan 8 and Cameron 4.. nice to meet you!!
