About an hour after I wrote that last post, we recieved the email from our lawyer. Details aside, it's not really good. In fact, it's pretty bad. There are things we could do, and there are some facts we could dispute...basically justa lot of gray areas that would be hard to fight from a legal standpoint.
We think that for the sake of our family, and our marriage, that it's time to lay down our weapons and finally start moving forward. It won't be easy and I will try not to cry about it on here too much, but...we won't be able to move back in to our home, ever. Sorry, no, our HOUSE. We will make a new home, somewhere. Dont be surprised if I stop writing about it altogether for a while...I see no point in dwelling on all the little details, you probably don't want to know them anyway.
The bottom line is that we can't really affford to fight a battle we would possibly(probably) lose, and we can't affgord to fix a house that we would never feel comfortable taking our child back into. Even if we had the money for the total cost f the repairs (which we don't) neither of us want Jack back in there.
This hurts. A lot. But in a way it is the first time in three months that we have any direction. We may not like where we are, but we aren't in limbo anymore.
Feek free to ask any questions you have, I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability. I know some of you wanted us to fight this, but even our lawyer is telling us that it would probably come down to a legal jugdement that could go either way...and that wouldn't happen for a long time. It's already been three months, we can't do this anymore.
