The papers have been filed. We have a court date now, where a Judge will decide if what he and I have decided on between us is okay. Neither one of us expects that there will be any problems with the settlement. We agreed on everything right away - except for two things...heh.
First, he thought he would take all the pets. Nope. Not gonna happen. We compromised and I kept the kitties and he got the dog. It was in the best interests for all involved that it end up that way.
Second...and this we did NOT discuss....he took ALL the gaming systems. Seriously. ALL of them. After I came to my senses a few days after he left I called him on this.
Specifically, I called him about the Wii. Because I LOVED the Wii. I had been waiting with bated breath for the Wii Fit to come out at the time we split. But he...he TOOK IT.
Okay, in all fairness, it WAS his birthday gift. And, sure he should have it...but but but BUT....!!!!! I loved it!! I played it more than him!!!!
This is a source of constant teasing on my part. Telling him that he "owes" me a Wii. In fact, I called him a few days after the papers had been filed to make sure I understood a particular point and it was then that I told him I wasn't leaving the courtroom unless the judge put it in the divorce decree that he has to get me a new Wii.
We laughed and joked about it. He protested that it was his to begin with, I bantered back that I played it more...it was good and fun and joshing.
Moments like that make me feel that it is possible that this man and I can remain friends after all is said and done. That even though we are not good as husband and wife, we ARE good as friends. That makes me happy.
That, and a new Wii would make me ecstatic. *chuckle*
