Hallelujah

I'm divorced! Let me say that again just because it sounds so damn good...I'm divorced!

It only took an hour. There was a moment there...they asked Ex if he agreed that this marriage was irreparable and he hesitated. Longest 2.5 seconds of my life. He finally said, "Uh, yeah."

Yeah is right.

I did get a small cramp in my facial muscles from trying not to grin like an idiot. I should go back to work, but I've been excused for the day and I'm going to take it. I have a ton of studying to do. I'm also looking at my apartment in the light of day for the first time in about two weeks, and it looks a little scary. So...I'm off to hit the books and the bleach. Graci worked all night, but we're going to celebrate a little later. She's resting up so she can buy me a drink.

This weekend, I have some thank you notes to write. This divorce is a victory I share with all the people who have loved me through it. That includes many of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your support.

"that more" ? clearly my brain was in random word deletion mode.

yay for 13. I always felt it was misunderstood.

Thanks for celebrating with me, M & J!

I'm bringing 13 back.

Yes 13. Congratulations little one - now go out and buy yourself a diamond, no matter how small, so you will always remember the occasion. That's what I did on the day of my first divorce - a tiny diamond in a pretty stick pin brooch. Hope you and Graci have fun celebrating.
PS Don't get bleach on your clothes.

I always look at the ends of things, which a lot of people find tragic, as new beginnings as well. Not sure if that makes me a 'glass half full' kind of person...more like "time to order the next round."

Cheers!

Congratulations! Mine was in April but I just opened a letter which told me so. It was a unnervingly quiet event.

If I were close I would buy you a drink.

cheers!
