YAY!!!!

Probably the most upbeat title I've used in the five years I've been blogging, but that's because it's official...

I'm DIVORCED!

YAY!!!! The judge gave the ex a brief tongue lashing on the importance of getting a job in order to pay child support, but didn't order the ex to submit a weekly job search journal to prove he's out looking for an income instead of just being a bum.
Given the circumstances...the ex is an ex-con, the economy sucks and there are only 9 months remaining before child support is a non-issue because the kiddie will be 18 and will have graduated high school... there isn't much hope to pin the possibility of him getting a job to. It was very apparent from the look on the judge's face that he knew as well as I do that I will probably never see a penny. But that's okay. The divorce decree was signed and that's all that really matters. I was so excited I wanted to go up and kiss the judge.

After we left the courtroom, I shook the ex's hand, told him to have a nice life and we went our separate ways. I will hopefully never see or speak to him again. Now I get to plan my divorce party!
