FINAL!!! I decided to check online to see the status of the D and was surprised to see a final decree issued on May 28th! They told me it would be anywhere from June 3rd to the 10th... it took EIGHT days from the time we finally filed for it to be final. Wow!
I am having lots of mixed emotions. The main one is RELIEF. I am also very happy. One emotion I didn't expect, but have to acknowledge is there, is sadness. Don't get me wrong - I am NOT sad that I divorced douchebag, but I guess I'm just sad about losing what "should have been". Does that make sense??
Anyway... I am going to go crack open that bottle of wine I have in the fridge. WOOT!!

Cheers to your new freedom !

I'm just sad about losing what "should have been". Does that make sense?? It makes a lot of sense. Congratulations on being final. And best of luck on your new beginning!
