This really has just taken too damn long. I don't understand why the reasoning is with this. It is all because of the courts and how backed up they are. In the end they look at the best interest of the child for everything...but how can this really be so when it takes so long? So long with no rules and trying to work out visits and financials on your own and just having to take whatever the other is willing to give. No wonder so many people end up so bitter and angry.
Let me tell you two significant things that can happen while you are waiting on your divorce because it takes SO LONG because the system is screwed up...
An entire five lane bridge can be imploded, rebuilt, and reopened (Blanchette Bridge) AND my teeth can get straightened.
If you didn't click on the link above, there are pictures of when they destroyed the bridge. Pretty amazing. I am really glad they are finished with that. In the winter months the noise at night of them working on it just echoed through the trees and buildings and kept me up at night.
Seriously, I have been doing those invisiligns all year and it is amazing. If you are an adult and don't have straight teeth and have orthodontic allowance on your plan, look into it. Remember my post from July, I gave a little advice. Don't put yourself in last place. I know it is easy to spend money on other things, but I am telling you that had I felt like I mattered at that time I would have gotten these invisiligns sooner. I had a gap where I had an extra tooth that was pulled when I was younger and the traditional braces didn't work out. I was always self conscious of that space in my teeth and wish that my extra tooth had never been pulled. As I felt like we didn't have the money to spend on me, I never looked into it at all...SO I HAD NO CLUE ON THE EXCELLENT DENTAL PLAN THAT I HAD THAT I WONT HAVE ONCE I AM DIVORCED. It took the realization that I probably wouldn't have insurance once my divorce was final to make appointments and look into things while I could. My plan made the invisiligns nearly half price and my dentist works out a monthly payment plan. It is only about $125 a month for mine. Really that could be the cost of your cable/internet for a month. Okay, so I don't even have that to spend at this time (thank goodness for mom and dad taking on that payment for me because really, who knows if I will have dental insurance or even a plan that would cover anything). So by the time my divorce is final, I will have perfect teeth. Pretty amazing.
End of gripe.
