I’m sitting in my living room, holding the pieces of myself together with a tenuous thread. I’m due at court in a little over an hour to ask for a restraining order against my ex-husband’s girlfriend. I spent yesterday morning at the courthouse filing the paperwork, and the afternoon waiting at the police station to file a report. I waited for three hours and never got to file the report. They did make me a copy of the incident log to bring to court, though. It shows that when the officer arrived at the house and spoke to her, she stated “If anything happens to her I did it”. I’m glad I waited for that. I don’t think that getting a temporary restraining order will be an issue….but you never know!
