Final Judgment

It looks so strange in black and white…

The bonds of matrimony heretofore existing between the parties, Howard X and (spouse’s name removed), be and the same are hereby dissolved, and the parties are hereby dissolved, and the parties are hereby granted a divorce absolute to and from one another on the grounds of Irreconcilable Differences.

You know what, though? I’m actually doing pretty good. As I’ve said before, once the final final decision was made, it took a lot of pressure off. Now it’s time to move on.

I’ve got a friend coming over to help me get my apartment, um, fixed up (notice I didn’t say “decorated”). I’m getting my finances in order so I can finally stop making payroll for Visa.

Biggest surprise of all? I’ve got a support system, which I’ve never had before. It feels good to unload once in a while and I’ve also gotten some great advice from others. Thank you, support system.

And so we fondly bid farewell to my life that was and look forward to my life that will be. Care to come along for the ride?
