She's Free, Still, Almost

Today is mediation day. Wish her luck.

My fantasy author, Sandy Lender, gets to sit in her attorney's office for at least two hours this afternoon, paying him his hourly fee and a mediator his hourly fee because her idiot soon-to-be-ex-husband can't get his act together. This surprises no one, but it still makes her fussy because she really doesn't have the money to make a luxury car payment every month to keep her attorney on top of his attorney to get this divorce finalized. As she puts it, she could have bought a new car by now. It's been almost a year since she filed...

Anyway, she's rather fussy this morning, which I think does not bode well for her staying out of jail this afternoon. Never fear! I will make sure she takes no weapons with her to the meeting. The chances of her soon-to-be-ex-husband showing up for this meeting (despite the fact that he's required to show up for it) are slim to none, so she doesn't really have to take a weapon. No castration will be necessary. (Her words, not mine.) But she still likes the idea of something sharp in her possession... Sigh.

In good news, the girls are taking her out afterward to eat something loaded with chocolate. That sounds like a grand plan to me. As long as they get her back here to watch Beowulf (which she was prevented from doing last night for silly reasons that she doesn't want to deal with here) so I can use her inspired moments to write for me. Writing always takes her mind off the stupid crap in her life...

And isn't that one of the joys of being a writer? Getting away from the annoyances barking at the door?
