It if finally official. It is done. It is over with.
July 22, I called the courthouse and talked to a clerk. The clerk told me that the papers had been signed by the judge that morning. I said thank you and hung up the phone. I had a slight panic attack for about a 1/2 hour, but then it hit me, I was free. I was done. It was over and I didn’t have to deal with it anymore. I spent the rest of the day feeling amazingly liberated and free.
The divorce was finalized exactly 23 months to the day that we separated. Can you believe that??? That is such a long time. I think that I have just been so worried about how it would all fall together that I haven’t really stopped to think that things will just work out. It is a great feeling!
