Just sent the email off to my lawyer asking him to proceed with filing.
If I wait to get through the junk with my Dad I will be waiting a very long time. That situation is just not going to be a fast thing. At. All.
I'm a little nervous but so ready to move on with the next phase of my life, officially. August will be a year since we separated and three years since the Atom Bomb went off in my life. It's time.
My middle child (6) asked me tonight if I wanted Daddy to move back. I said "I think I like the way things are now, sweetie." She asked if we were going to break up, and I told her that we already did. I think that the transition has been slow enough that this will not be too too hard on them. I am scared for them, but hope to make this as easy and uneventful as possible.
I think it takes 3 months for everything to be finalized. So I'm actually looking at this being final right around my 33rd birthday.
It will be bittersweet...but definetly more sweet than bitter.
