Thanks for the comments on this one! What I failed to mention in my poem, is the education I'm so thankful to have, as a result of the divorce. Amazing that you can grab so much good out of a situation that is stereotyped as so bad...I can now value real estate (as I had to do a market analysis on my own home for the court), I can appraise automobiles (as I also had to do for the court, on my own auto)...Kinko's has lived up to it's name, "office away from home", as I know how to operate all 12 of their copy machines, send overnite mails via 3 different carriers and their fax machine is more like a personal friend now! Oh, and I can deal with plumbers and fight off sales calls now, and just painted the tree house outside, SOLO! Marriage taught me bunches, but the lessons learned thru divorce are much more valuable (*EG*).
dsnyder: redeeming qualities indeed! Nice to see you come thru something a much better person than you remembered from before. Thanks.
tulip: hang in there! It's a long road, but if you keep that smile on your face, even when you would rather stomp your feet and jump up and down, things will fall into place in time. I find "divorce" has been very freeing, in many more ways than one. I wish more would write of the comical side of it, as we should all be reminded that there is always more than one view on a situation. I prefer the giggly side, myself.
Hootowl: ^5! THAT is what I wanted to hear...a hearty laugh! Thanks!
SnglDad: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! You, of all replies, KNOW how my heart has written this one. Nice to share a JUAD with you once again. I seem to lose me every now and then, but I'll try to "stay" in this frame of mind.
Saxoness: ME TOO, now. Smiles to you!
Peace to all~
