Cross Your Fingers (and Maybe Your Toes?)

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?

    Good luck, I hope you can convince him this will be as much for his and the kids benefit as for yours.
