Updates on Very Important Situations

Important to me, at any rate.

My legal woes have come to an end for now. (It's the 'for now' part that scares me) We dutifully went to court where I insisted that the charges against Sam be dropped, expessed my dismay that the wrong person could be arrested and charged when the evidence so clearly exonerated him, threatened to bring the entire justice system to a screeching standstill with my myriad of lawsuits, and generally made an ass out of myself. The charges were dismissed. The prosecutor, after seeing my stunning display of verbal prowess, declined to re-charge me, and let me pay restitution. So that's over. Like I said, for now. Because I am seriously contemplating a suit for recompense. I think Sam deserves compensation for missing work and having to spend a night in jail. I'm debating the pros and cons ie: more drama vs. a probable pittance in awards.

Silas' injuries have healed nicely. A small red line for a scar, and an aversion to trash cans are all he has to show for his tumble.

I have shown no further proclivity to burny hands and feets.

I would give you a growing out the grey update, but it's just too depressing. My hair looks awful. Just nasty. I'm getting it cut tomorrow, so there is still hope. Just not very much.

With that, I leave you until more things of import happen.

Glad that the run in with the law appears to be finished and at an end. I finally got my hair cut after about 9 months, and it looks crappy. Oh well...

I'm so glad that things got resolved. What a mess.

You go girl!

Can I bring you with me to kick some legal ass when I finally file for divorce? lol

Glad to hear Silas and you are both doing better as well. =)

When one door closes, another opens? Maybe that's a lousy analogy. In any event, I'm glad things are calming down on these fronts. ::hugs::

Glad things are looking up for you. Hopefully Silas will be left with nothing more than a funny story to share.

I figured the prosecutor was offering you a job!

I'm glad that everything got straightened out. Did they ever give a reason as to WHY your husband got arrested at not you? Are they sexist pigs or what?!?! hee hee.
