I'm sitting outside a UPS store waiting on STBX. We will sign and notarize divorce papers. It will be, God willing, the last thing I have to do. The legal process doesn't bother me. The marriage was over when she slept with another man. I did occur to me that this is likely the last time I'll ever see her. Such a strange thought. I'll be moving out of state in a month. On to bigger and better things. I feel relieved to be almost done but there's grief there, too. It's gonna be a strange day.

Hope it goes smoothly.

Don't worry if you feel bad a bit. It's OK to morn what was lost and what could have been. Tomorrow begins the rest of your new life.

There's grief, of course. Everything was fine. She actually had the guts to say something about "our misfortune". I smiled, kissed her on the cheek and walked away. Then I turned in my resignation at work. I burn more bridges before 10 am than most people do all day.

Thanks for the support

some days its just time to burn it all down and start over.

My X and I did the same thing at a store last summer. We were actually joking a bit about thing and the poor kid at the desk made a comment about what a great couple we were just about a minute before he notarized our D papers AWKWARD!

Then my X made a quip about wanting 1/2 of the $10 it cost to get them notarized. I quipped that I wanted half of the $250 filing fee. He shut up and we walked out and went to our cars and drove off... yep, these things often end with wimper.

Enjoy your new life!

Sounds like a good tagline...

It's bittersweet now, but much sweetness to come after, I know.

Sending support your way, SSL. You've been through hell and maintained your strength and dignity. The best is yet to come in your new life.

There is always a tone or writing style in your posts that suggest bigger and better is just ahead for you. That you are ready, and embracing the new life to come. You project hope and healing. Sometimes I envy your freedom to pick up and scram. I look forward to following your new beginning and living vicariously through it. All the best to you sunset!!
