5:30 Appointment

Going to see a guy about a divorce.
No, no. It's a good thing.

Update:
Wow. And pretty simple, too. I figured we'd mostly just find out what we needed to know at this appointment, and what to do next. But in fact? It's...kind of done. It'll be several months before it goes through all the channels, but there's nothing else either of us has to do. How very humane.

Me, too. I hope all is well.

I have a sense that you've done the emotional heavy lifting, but do expect the finality to ache a bit. Even when it's right, it's a loss.

I'm sending psychic hugs your way, in case you should need them.

Namaste.

Yeah, what CR said. Brace yourself for getting the papers in the mail or however they do it on the Island. Even when you want it, even when you're the one asking for it, it really hits you at that moment and there's a grieving process--perhaps for what might have been if EVERYTHING had been different than it was, but still.

Just...be as ready as you can. Don't want you to be blindsided. I was and that was ugly.

I remember when I got mine in the mail (I filed). I'd been ready for the finality for 2 years before he agreed to the divorce. When the papers came and it was all over, I was a little upset that I felt...nothing at all. Though I don't wish you pain, I hope that lack of reaction doesn't happen to you.
