It's Done.

Done. Over.

I signed the divorce papers today. It was such a... shock, I guess? That isn't really the right word. But it was really strange to see M's handwriting, his signature. It was like I had a flashback of all the notes he'd written me in high school, up to him signing our marriage certificate... and then this. I know that signature, that handwriting so well. It hit me kind of hard.

But it's over. The papers aren't going to be filed with the court until M provides documentation that E is insured under his policy (what good does it do if I don't have the information, anyway? I mean seriously) but as soon as we do, all it needs is a judge's signature and it's final.

It's a bittersweet day.


  1. One day you'll look back on this and will have to remind yourself that it hurt. You are an obviously strong momma and E is very lucky to have you!

  2. Been there, done that and it is surreal. I have never commented before but do read and today I am sending you out e-hugs.

  3. Thinking of you mama, lots of hugs!

  4. Yes, bittersweet is the perfect word to describe it. Once it's final with the courts, you will feel like an incredible weight has been lifted off of you. Cheers to the beginning of the next chapter in your life!
