Here are some things I never thought I would know...
a) You get a certificate for divorce. It does not, however, come with a frame or with nice calligraphied handwriting.
b) There must have been a bulk rate on ugly paper because it is printed on some seriously ugly, light brown paper with...
c) Purple ink. Purple ink? Who made that call? I gotta tell you, I would have been the conservative one suggesting that they just go with 'black' during the what-ink-should-we-use-on-the-divorce-decree discussion.
You all have been so kind with your support and reminders that I am not alone. I am quite sure that this is yet another situation why Hallmark stopped using the tag line, "We have a card for everything," because they just really don't have a 'Sorry, but not really because we have known this was coming and now at least you can move on but still sorry because even just a year ago NONE of us saw this coming' card.
I have come up with yet another one of my detailed analogies for what this feels like:
It is like finally ripping the band-aid all the way off and realizing that although the wound is healing nicely and will continue to get better there is always going to be a scar there.
This concludes my report.
