Back to court

Or rather, first time to court with everyone involved in the divorce there.  All I can say is divorce sucks, but it's better than an unhappy marriage.  Our judge seems very fair and I like her.  I wish this were over already.  I wish we could move on with our lives and not have to keep paying lawyers and wasting time and money.  I wish this was a year from now, when most of the wounds would probably be healed. 

My life is good right now and I am filled with gratitude for the two friends who accompanied me to court yesterday and sat with me for three hours and then took me out to lunch.  Barbara and Cathy - friends don't come much better than both of you.  And then another really dear friend, Karen, took me out to dinner.

So how can I feel sad?  Life is great, having friends is amazing, the judge will finally bring this to a conclusion, hopefully on November 30th, when all of us are expected to gather again, this time with more information and then, hopefully, a resolution.  Although one thing I've learned from all of this is nothing is certain and lawyers make too much money.

It's a beautiful day today.  I'm going to ride my bike to a party at the Hudson River in a couple of hours, to watch a sunset and gather with friends.

Fingers crossed that all goes smoothly—and fairly.
