He Spits in My Face

He just likes to show his ass. But then, he is Donkey. Just the other day I posted my woes over him making yet another decision impacting the kids with no regard to co-parenting. He wasn’t finished with me. It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of his email rants. Partly because he switched […]

Judge Craig, Reassigned

Oh happy day! I thought I’d have to wait for re-election to have a new judge, but no. Seems the gods of the judicial system have seen fit to re-assign Judge Dennis Craig out of Flagler County and in to Volusia County. 4 Years In, Judge Dennis Craig Is Reassigned to Volusia and Replaced by […]

Single, not divorced

I’m filing out a lot of forms these days and every single one of them asks for my marital status. It’s a Check One category, not a Check All That Apply. Divorced, and Single I am divorced, but I am also single. Which one do I select? The form-reading computer brains would probably explode if […]

Donkey said I was a creative writer

In court Donkey stressed my writing abilities. Well, she’s a writer…she was writing when we got married…she’s a creative writing major…True…I was in college and it was required…I am an English Language and Literature graduate. I was also a Sunday morning radio host, a regular at the local pizza bar, and studying professional, essay, feature, and scholarly writing. And I […]

Forty days divorced

40 days since what took 20 months to end, finally ended (minus the signatures, still, tho). Judge Dennis Craig agreed the marriage was irretrievably broken. Funny, Donkey and I agreed on that point, too. That’s about it, except for the givens like names, ages, and other stuff of legality. We didn’t agree to the Who, What, […]
