Done deal

It's all over. We made it to the courthouse, despite the totally random and untimely pink eye I seem to have contracted. The kids went to their grandparents house, and since I didn't really want to drive because my eye hurt so much, my ex picked me up. Yup, we carpooled to our own divorce. It went fairly quickly, especially since the courthouse was closing at 12 for the snowstorm, and it was very emotional and sad and hard. I even had a moment when I was testifying that I thought "Do I really want to do this?" Of course, I don't really want to do this, but it's the right decision, and just because we're getting along today doesn't mean he won't do something awful tomorrow.

So it's done. Financially things are good, he's going to continue giving me money until our debt is paid off, and then I'll just get child support, which is fine with me.

I'm ready for 2009.

Wow, car pooling with your soon to be X, that is frugal. I'm hooked.
