I’ve been procrastinating on my court paperwork. I needed a break from it all and felt so relieved about the current supervised visits. It’s time to put the *Snuggie back on the shelf and get ready for the next round. Today, I said to myself: Do It! Grab the bull by the horns.
Our next court date is April 18th and this date will determine if the current order (supervised visits) becomes a permanent order. After starting my paperwork tonight and reading the court transcripts, I feel extremely confident that it will go in our favor. The paperwork and reality of it is very daunting but the positive component is that I don’t have a lot to do– he dug himself a big, cozy hole full of lies to lay down in. I honestly don’t know how he could possibly climb out this time.
Regardless, I want to be prepared. I have made all of the appropriate contacts, received supporting documentation and now it’s just a matter of filling out the forms and going through the motions. I was hoping (along with billions of other people) that my Mega Millions lotto ticket was the winner last week so that I could hire a fabulous attorney to swoop in and take over this paperwork nightmare that I’ve been trapped in for three years. After thinking about it a bit more, I realized that at this point I don’t think that I would hire an attorney even if I could pay for it. I don’t think that I could find another human being more passionate about protecting my daughters. Even if I had millions, I would show up for court in two weeks and represent my girls.
*Disclaimer: I don’t really own a Snuggie– can’t quite bring myself to do it but may reconsider when I retire.
