divorce story
      #260652 - 07/11/07 06:49 PM

I am almost divorced. This Tuesday I'm supposed to be in court in front of the judge, but I really have no desire to be there. And it really doesn't matter ... I've let him have everything except my kids, because I think ... no I know, that I can get by just fine on my own.

I know this is going to sound like spam, but it's not. I have written a short, short story about divorce and if I can generate enough votes for it, I stand to win a cash prize, and I sure can use it.

I hate doing this, I think it stinks to have to beg people for votes, but there's no way around it. If you wouldn't mind and if you find the material is worth it, would you please consider voting for my story?

thank you

Okay, I can see you might need more information. I am a writer, have been for several years. I write a column and I am trying to make a living with other submissions. It's pretty much what killed my relationship ... my husband wanted me to give it up and I refused. Unless you know a control freak, you wouldn't understand. Now it's more important than ever that I show him that I can do it.

CJ, I like your writing, but I didn't see how to vote for your story.

Tomorrow morning at 9:30 we go before the judge. I'm scared to death. I think my biggest fear is that I will make a fool out of myself and cry. I have a friend that told me that she walked out of the courthouse feeling like she didn't belong in society anymore. Funny how your mind can work.

It's not like I would cry because I don't want this. I don't even know why I would cry, but I have a terrible fear that I will. I almost decided not to show up — just let things go on without me. But another friend said, "you have to show up, or you won't have closure."

Jesus.

I have another appointment with Lydia for this Saturday. It's not the 15th ... but it's close enough.

Okay, I did not cry (in the courtroom) Although I did have some issues while driving there. I just bit my thumb each time I felt the urge. The judge was not happy with my husband when he asked him when we were married and he could not provide the answer. Some things never change.
