Sit Down With Me For A While

This is the excerpt for your very first post.



One day away, less than 24 hours until the final prove up hearing, and so far this morning has continued what seems like a constant waiting game.  Frustrating as it can be, it is obviously part of the divorce process.  When one of the parties is one who has no sense of urgency, largely due […]

Herding a Cat

This week my wife reminded me a little of why I needed her to be gone.  Most people that I have talked to say that they saw the worst of their spouse during their divorce process, unsavory character amplified by a process that brings out the worst in a person.. or at least it can.  […]

Wallowing in Status

The past few months have felt largely like a senseless wallow, my desire for closure constantly challenging my patience.  I am winning the war against patience so far, but it’s not easy.  It’s not that the divorce negotiations are going no where, but they are indeed progressing backwards at times.  My wife’s lawyer seems disinterested […]
