Divorce Court

So today was my best friends divorce court- you remember where "he" served my kids to testify.

4 hours were scheduled on the court calendar- I actually made fun of this- they had no kids, a pre-numptual agreement, only married about a year, she owned her house before they were married- what could take 4 hours?

WRONG! After 4 hours- the judge continued it until this afternoon- then continued it again until Tuesday- folks really why do you have to be so stubborn?

My boys did great on the stand. It was hard to see Dylan on the stand- he is so little and his voice was shaking- but he just answered the questions and they moved on to Bryce. The judge had them out of the courtroom and back in class within an hour- I appreciate that.

I read during court on my Kindle-I was able to finish one book and start another- so I do appreciate getting some reading time in.

I guess I just don't understand what is so important to fight over. When I broke up with my ex- I gave her the nicer van of the two-yes I drove a mini van! I took the largest credit card debt, split the furniture, sold the house and took the animals because she hated them and just moved on. I am still friends with everyone I have ever been in a relationship with- even my first love! Just seems to make life easier this way.

I will update on Tuesday how long court is that day- but at least the kids are done.
