Final Judgment

It looks so strange in black and white...

The bonds of matrimony heretofore existing between the parties, Howard X and (spouse's name removed), be and the same are hereby dissolved, and the parties are hereby dissolved, and the parties are hereby granted a divorce absolute to and from one another on the grounds of Irreconcilable Differences.

You know what, though? I'm actually doing pretty good. As I've said before, once the final final decision was made, it took a lot of pressure off. Now it's time to move on.

I've got a friend coming over to help me get my apartment, um, fixed up (notice I didn't say "decorated"). I'm getting my finances in order so I can finally stop making payroll for Visa.

Biggest surprise of all? I've got a support system, which I've never had before. It feels good to unload once in a while and I've also gotten some great advice from others. Thank you, support system.

And so we fondly bid farewell to my life that was and look forward to my life that will be. Care to come along for the ride?


I've been reading your blog for weeks. And you've always made me laugh. Today I actually almost cried. But I look hideous when my nose turns red, so had to contain all the emotions I felt as I read that last entry. Goodluck, Howard. Any room on your ride?

Fixing up rocks. You should fix up the bedroom, bathroom, and the kitchen table.

Just call us "Supporters 'R' Us," and know that we're with you. I've got my helmet ready in case that ride includes a motorcycle. :-)

Crikey. As usual, everyone else is supportive and deb's all: Shag here! Shag there! Uh, me love you long time?

Hang in there!! I have been there and done that and having a support system is the best medicine. Find out what you like and what you don't. Make your heart sing!!

Congratulations. Finality is not always a bad thing.

Count me on your side.
