Happy Birthday to me...I'm filing for divorce today
So, today is my birthday, and what am I going to do? Spend it at my local do it yourself law center filling out divorce and TRO papers. I've said I was going to one the kids were almost done with high school yet now I have the opportunity with (exdh?) in jail with 2 felony charges plus I have an emergency protective order from him for me and the kids.
The kids have had such a nice time without him here no screaming and name calling and the friends that have called or come by admitting that they knew we were all stuck with his issues.We had a family counseling session yesterday and she said the kids actually seem relieved. Not that they don't love their Dad, I know, but they struggle with the chaos of his addiction and subsequent behaviors.
There should be the initial court hearing today and i wonder what will go on, I suppose I will need to call the jail and see if he was let go or they keep him in longer? All the while I sit at home worrying about the CPS BS that is coming my way. UGH!! I did the right things, took the right steps, protected my children!!
Thanks for listening! And just so you know I have tried to leave before but court would give him the kids half time and It was safer that that didn't happen so I stayed for the kids to grow up more. yes, even in the addiction environment and NO, the courts would not drug test him before charges were brought, now they've been brought!!
