I survived today in court - one hearing was continued because the judge recused herself (perhaps because she realizes that these matters may be appealed and she has made mistakes in prior hearings) and in the other the outcome was reasonable and reflected my financial reality. The former wife, in short, did not get what she wanted and merely wasted more money on attorneys fees. I have always wanted to sit down and try to work things out but it takes two to tango as they say. My offer to talk stands but I'm not holding my breath that it will be accepted.
As always the boyfriend and my office manager were wonderfully supportive even thought they did not end up having to testify. I am blessed to have them and my young paralegal in my life - they are loyal, caring and wonderful.
Sunday is Father's Day and my youngest daughter is coming over to hang out with us during the afternoon and then stay for dinner. She is another mainstay in my life and her love and support throughout the divorce wars nightmare has meant more to me than she will ever know. She is a very special and amazing gift from God to me.
