Wednesday, hump day and other things....


It is 67 degrees outside already today and that means it will be a hot one for sure. The prediction is for it to hit mid 90s today. So, here we are, at the day of reckoning for me and the wife. Our court hearing is scheduled for today at 9 or so and we will see what happens as a result of it. The wife figures to get the court to stick it to me for the rest of my life and I hope they stick it to her, but we will both be less than satisfied with the outcome, or so I am told. The passion that the wife hopes will sway the judge is not nearly as potent as she might like and the common sense that I hope for is not all that good either. The lawyers are the ones who will win this day, you should see the fees they charge. So, I will be back later today with a synopsis of events and maybe info about my future. I just want this done and finished. It has taken way to long to resolve this situation and I am just about sick of it. Wish me luck, gang!
Ok, it is now about 4:15pm and if you wished me luck for this morning, IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got to the courthouse and my lawyer came up and said the wife and her attorney had proposed a settlement offer. I listened to what she said and jumped at it. Only a little money has to change hands and she will be out of here by the end of July! CAN YOU DIG THAT??
I sure can. The amount she wants is way less than the damned lawyers were going to get if we had proceed with the hearing and had to go over and over all the crap that was waiting in that process. We would have both come out a lot less fortunate and I am just so happy about the whole thing, I can hardly contain myself. I am definitely heading to the lake in Virginia this weekend to celebrate with my friends. We are going to have a huge seafood cook out with all the trimmings. Man, this is just wonderful. I will be back later to wrap up if I can get down off of this cloud-9 I am riding on! LOL
I have been out to get some supper and now back in for the evening. I am still kinda floating on the high of having this separation thing almost behind me. Wow, it has been almost 10 months and just seemed as if it would not end. But, like all things, this too shall pass. I am going to concentrate on my work, my friends, some fun I have planned and just relax. It is about friggin time! LOL Nite, nite, peeps, and sleep well, I know I am going to! Save some energy when you can.
