Friday can't come soon enough


Friday is the day when my husband and I go to mediation to iron out the finalities of the separation agreement which becomes the basis for the divorce. I'm taking the day off, despite the fact that it'll be a 2 hour appointment, because I know it will be a difficult day.

Friday can't come soon enough because despite the fact that my realtor works with a lender who is trustworthy and who wouldn't write a loan that isn't viable, my husband doesn't know her thus doesn't trust her and thus wants me to wait until after our mediation session to put in an offer. Sure, it's been on the market a year and likely a few days more won't make a difference. But, it could also be the other way around. Sure, you can argue, well then it wasn't meant to be. But I hate that argument. Bullshit.

Friday can't come soon enough because I'm tired of his pig-headedness and conservatism. I'm tired of him and being connected at the hip with him. I'm tired of being friendly when I feel like ripping his head off. I'm happier alone. Even when I'm lonely. Because it's better to be lonely alone than when you are in the same house as someone. That's just pathetic.

Friday I'll be looking to go out and get drunk after signing the offer on the place, if it's still available. Anyone want to join?

I would have gladly joined in had I been on the same side of the pond! Good luck with it all, I can relate.

I would have but my arms can't reach that far to actually drink effectively.

I shall raise a pint to you here in the shadow of the 'gunks on Friday!

I'd almost make the drive out there purely to party.

Gracias todos! I'll have to get someone who's willing to drive me around, or at least walk to where I'll be staying. Or maybe I can bike. Biking drunk is fun. Yes, and dangerous.

Susan, if I didn't have responsibilities (have to dog and cat sit this weekend) I'd drive down there...

Oh, and Ariel, thanks for visiting!

I would if you lived in Iowa. I've ridden my bike drunk before and one time it was so bad, that I fell over. Apparently,it was quite visually stunning.
