<p>XH and I are going to court to finalize our agreement paperwork.  *IF* the judge can squeeze us in, we will finalize the whole divorce today.  I am really really really hoping for that, because I need this to be DONE and I want to be able to relax this weekend.  If that doesn't happen today, it will be finalized on Monday, but somehow that seems like a long way off, to spend the weekend stressed and anxiously waiting.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am really hoping this goes easily, smoothly, quickly, and that XH doesn't pull any surprises.  Hats off to all of you who survived this process -- it is so nerve-wracking.  I think I will feel much calmer and healthier when it's behind me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I promise I'll update after it's over.  Thanks.</p>

<p>I am divorced!  Thank you all SO much.  It meant a lot to know I had thoughts and love surrounding me.  The case manager is awesome and she had all our paperwork updated and printed out for us to sign.  (I prepped her by sending all the changes to her via e-mail in advance, which was smart.)  The judge saw us right away, it was the judge I know (no conflict of interest if our case is uncontested), and we were out of there in under an hour.  It was much, much easier than I expected.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was nervous as heck in the courtroom but hardly had to say anything except "yes" and "no."  I did get a little thrown when we had to swear in at first and say "I do" (shudder).  Those words are just the wrong ones to start a divorce off with!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>XH didn't make a fuss about anything at all.  Thank goodness.  He just signed, and so did I.  I am done.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>After we left the courtroom, he picked up the kids for their scheduled weekend.  I took a walk up and down Main Street, poking into the cute little shops, and then did a drop-in yoga class.  Perfect.  Came home to a surprise little care package from my awesome sister with a poem in it that was just perfect for the moment, and some goodies.  And now I will spend the weekend starting my recovery from the most difficult year-plus of my life.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Whew.  I am feeling so glad to be emotionally and physically/financially free of him and our marriage.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thank you guys for being here.</p>
