The Aftermath of Divorce

Once upon a time my divorce fit into an medium-sized cardboard box.

 But then it grew and soon needed a large file box. Then two file boxes. Now with just a couple of things yet to be accomplished, I decided it was time to put some of that paper through the shredder.

I kept the important stuff. And the stuff that's just too interesting to throw away.

It all fits in one file box again.

I can't wait until I can do that. I still have the piles and piles of manipulation and lies, and lawyer bills and documents for the most stupid things. Thanks for letting me see there really is and end to all of this.

THAT is beautiful progress.

Wowza! It feels good to unload the garbage, doesn't it.

Makes me so glad the ex and I went to a mediator and each paid $600 for that and even though the ex screwed me royally by taking Social Security at 62, forever limiting the amount I could get (based on half of his), we then split the actual divorce costs as well and we were DONE, less than 2 years after we separated and no lawyers got rich from our misery. And the paperwork I have would fit into a shoebox, but I have it in some hanging files - and carry a copy of my divorce decree around in my car, just in case I need to show it to someone, sometime.

I thought my divorce was all over and paid for, then got one more email from my lawyer. Send us $192 and we will send you your final divorce decree. What the fuck was the $5000 I already paid?
