After my Easter post and against my better judgement, I agreed to meet the Goblin King for mediation a few days later than the original date that was offered to us. That day is today. I got myself a new t-shirt to wear to the meeting.
I’m going to ask you all for your collective positive energy.
I will need strength to go into this mediation.
I will need to remain calm and collected.
I will need to be willing and able to stop the meeting and leave if it’s a waste of time.
Although it’s not the only topic we’ll be discussing, my aim is to (at the very least) come out of the meeting with a summer schedule I can live with. Ideally, the summer schedule will be set in stone for the next several years. I’m not going to hold my breath – but I have to go into this meeting hopeful for a good result.
If it’s not too traumatic, I may provide a full update next week. (If it’s as much as a farce as I expect, I might live tweet it…we’ll see).
In the meantime, the mediator takes forms of electronic payment (so I can transfer her the money directly from my bank after the meeting is over). I’m thinking about passwords. #sorrymyexisanasshole. Got any other suggestions?
