Shit happens and when it does I just have to roll with the punches and hang on a little tighter. Things usually go as well as can be expected in this crazy Wonderland like world of mine. This is my one ride on the merry-go-round. I have to cling to the dizzying surface of our spinning blue ball just like everybody else.
Still, when my X dragged me back into court it couldn’t have been at a worse time. Today was day one out of two in Dept.18 at Family Law, April 19th, 9:00am. I was terrified but calm. Ready to break down when they called on me.
I have spent the last 6 days living and eating (practically) at my lawyers office getting ready for today. I kid you not, there is reasoning behind this insanity that remains to be seen.
Yesterday we were working like demons getting ready for today. (It takes a lot of work to do a trial!) We needed to be ready in the morning and it was already 4pm. Just as I thought we would all suffocate in paperwork the phone rang.
As one of the lawyers took the call everyone started gathering around the front desk one by one. I was dying to know what was up. He gets off the phone and gives us all a long look I couldn’t read. He says; "You are not going to believe this." As he does this a big smile spreads across his face. “That was the judge’s secretary, court is off until June or July. The judge had a personal emergency and can't be in court tomorrow.” We couldn't believe it!
I felt like someone had taken my stomach on the roller coaster at Great America without my brain. This hardly EVER happens. I was all ready for court tomorrow damn it!
So court was postponed. Was I lucky or would this make things worse when court resumes? To be truthful about today I’m just home doing NOTHING. I will be ready for the next date. At least I slept good last night with no worries about this world.
PS Thanx for the pouring out of love and good wishes, I call you all My Guardian Angels.
