37 Days til Divorce Hearing

Yes, I’m going to be counting down. I feel a little guilty about being so excited about my marriage ending. My ex-husband is, in fact, not a bad guy, but I am so ready for this to be done with. I feel great stress released from my shoulders. As there were a lot of things I was worried about and now that I’ve got a hearing, it should be simple considering he submitted a document not contesting the divorce and we have a notarized separation agreement regarding our assets and child custody. The clerk said it should be simple and quick and in all likelihood, I’ll receive the divorce judgment that day.

Of course, things don’t always turn out exactly as you expect, but I’m betting on being divorced on July 8, 2022.

Then I have the stress of changing my name (I’m going back to my maiden name) on the following documents/in the following places:

  • Social security card
  • Driver’s License (I’ll be getting a REAL ID)
  • Employer (and removing my ex-husband from health insurance coverage)
  • Bank
  • Utility companies, streaming services
  • Car insurance
  • Car registration
  • Apartment lease
  • Email accounts
  • Post Office
  • Social media (Meetup, Facebook)

Those are the ones I can think of at the top of my head. Can you think of any others?

So, I still feel stressed about this. By the end of next month, I should be done with all this, ::knock on wood::

I told my therapist I want to start opening up more to people in person, and also this is the year I get down to a healthy weight. I’ll need help with both things, especially the latter.

Breathe, Quix, breathe. Almost at the finish line.

About Quixie

Hi! I go by "Quixie." Quixie is a shortened version of "quixotic," which means: "exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical." It's how I described my evangelical Christian faith when I started blogging 7 years ago. Now I'm an agnostic atheist who is trying to find a balance between idealism and reality. I write about my mental health journey with bipolar disorder, my loss of faith (deconversion), parenting teens, reading, exercise/health, work-life, and my marriage separation/divorce.
