It's In

The forensic report that is. And custody stays the same. I have full custody, legal and physical. The forensic didn't really have anything bad to say about me. I'm going to read it tomorrow at my attorney's. But this is



YAY!!!!! HOORAY!!! WOO HOO!!!!

I want to shout it from the rooftops. I don't have to worry about the way I parent DB anymore. Thank you, thank you, Hashem. If I had everyone's phone numbers I would have called all you guys and told you this great news.

Of course, it doesn't mean that anything about relocation is resolved, but it's one less thing for me to worry about. And it does help my case. The trial is still up in the air and it looks like I might be stuck in Oz for at least another six months, possibly a year but still.....

I want to hug and kiss everyone I see. I've been smiling and talking to strangers the whole day. Not about the case... just about whatever. I've been helping moms with babies and shopping carts, offering suggestions about books for children, offering cold drinks to the postman and doorman, letting old people cross the road and smiling and waving back to them, talking to garbage men, cashiers and anyone else I come in contact with. Don't stand too close I might start talking to you next. Some of these people initiated conversations with me, but that was only after I was smiling at them.

Hashem has created a beautiful world. I can finally care for DB without looking over my shoulder. Free at last. Free at last. Thank G-d Almighty I'm free at last!

Thanks sooo much.

I could go on and on forever, it's very rare that I can't find something to say... so if you think you can handle it.

Hey Day,
WOOOOHOOOO is what DB says and it sounds like he's an old man in a little boy's body.

And to Day,
So Day it is... thanks.

I don't get it. What does that mean??? Free to do what?

Yay! Mazel Tov!

Free not to worry that my every move is being watched and recorded to be used in court and misconstrued.

It also means not having to worry about DB taking ritalin for the ADHD that 10 experts and professionals have concluded does not have. The stbx is trying to prove I'm an unfit mother and not taking care of my son's medical needs.

You're absolutely right. Just need to find someone to celebrate with.
