Well, hey there.
How have you been? Is that a new haircut? You look good. I like those shoes. So, what’s going on with you?
Me? Yeah, sorry – kind of disappeared there. I know, I know, I should have left a message. Checked in. Something. I know, people worry. Feelings get hurt. Sorry about that.
Luckily – for those who feel some investment – my return means you’re in for a blow by blow of the last couple of months, complete with introspection, pondering, rhetorical questions, and (undoubtedly) overanalysis.
It’s been a bit of a time. The major highlights, to be discussed at length in the coming weeks:
My divorce is final (Huzzah!) as of December 29th, 2008 – a mere, oh, two years after starting the process.
Wait, wait – two years? Wasn’t this supposed to be a fairly straightforward process, what with the two of us having no kids, no property, no real disagreement?
Why, yes. And this brings us to the land of How Do You Know If Your Lawyer Is Screwing You, in a metaphorical and non-delightful way.
Now that it’s final, I am playing the post-9/11 Name Change Game, in all its roundabout, paperwork-heavy, waiting-in-line glory.
Oh, right – and my boyfriend broke up with me the day before we were supposed to fly to my dad’s for Thanksgiving.
Okay, that’s not really fair. He didn’t technically break up with me. But the immediate ramifications were the same. It was not a great holiday. It was not a great month, come to think of it.
So that you don’t spend the next couple of weeks worrying, things have worked out. In terms of specifics, those you’ll have to wait for.
All this and more – stay tuned.
