One other thing in the divorce has been handled: withdrawing my share of a bank account shared with my ex wife and closed it. Since the nearest branch of this bank is in Nashville, it required four hour of driving (round trip).
@matigo I gave a good chunk of it to my houseguests. Did take a second crack at the carcass today and pulled off some amazing meat for my own leftovers.
I actually cooked my first turkey yesterday. I’m glad this was only a half turkey, because my half was 21 pounds.
The one benefit of using a personal check to pay my tax bill is I know the IRS received the paper return I had to file.
What happens next and when is out of my hands. However, I’m pretty sure my ex will have to answer some uncomfortable questions before too long…
@variablepulserate Yeah, the Tennessee Valley is quite pretty. I wouldn't want to get stuck out on the roads in that part of the world, though, as there wasn't even mobile phone signal in some places.
@matigo A lot of why I globetrotted as much as I did was my situation at home. That situation is obviously very different now than it was at the start of the year. Let's just say I have a lot less motivation to travel going forward.
@matigo Driving more places? Yes. Flying more places? We'll see.
