My Miscellany: Oh No! Friday The 13th!


wp-1485298089762.jpgToday is Friday the 13th!  For those of you who are superstitious, not a good day.  However, it’s a great day for me!

Today I am going to the Probation Department, usually NOT a good thing.  However, today it’s a GREAT thing.  Last week I met with my Probation Officer.

She was so thrilled with my progress she decided that today would be the day we go before a judge and remove almost ALL of my probation stipulations!  All I will have to do is call in once a week.  You have no idea what the lifting of these restrictions means; so, I’m going to tell you.

That means that I will not have to pay over $2,800 in fees.  I will not have to attend two different punitive classes, which would have amounted to approximately 52 of them (and pay $75 each for).  Justice indeed!  I feel exonerated without even completing my appeal of my wrongful conviction.  She never believed I was guilty from the get go.  She knew what time of day it was with that entire situation.  I am glad someone believed in me.

relationship1The biggest thing is she is willing to relocate my probation to any state in the U.S.!  I am now deciding which state I want to move to.  I am definitely thinking California!  Sunny and warm, here I come.  By the end of March I will be out of this godforsaken state!

A great day for me indeed.  Doing good things results in good things.  And, because some of those penalties were resultant of a totally bogus charge, I feel a strong sense of redemption for these blessings today.

So, Friday the 13th be damned!  It’s a lucky day for me.

  1. That’s awesome news. Friday the 13th has been lucky for me since high school when my friend ‘willed’it to me in the high school yearbook. I feel it’s all just a matter if perspective. If you’re looking for something bad to happen, it usually does. But if you’re staying positive and hopeful about the day, something good will come of it.

  2. Cali is good. My son really wants to go to Stanford, and then walk out and get a job in one of the companies in Silicon Valley. The rest of us just want to move where the weather stays the same for longer than an hour.

          1. That’s where I live. If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change. It’s not bad – Columbus is one of my favorite cities – but the weather here means you have to have an umbrella, shades, mittens and sandals in your car, just in case.

              1. I lived in Summit County for two years, up in the mountains. Fantastic area, Keystone Resort was amazing. My mom’s friend lived in some snowbirds’ house, and was a boat pilot during the summer on Lake Dillon. That’s a great place to just relax and view the scenery, meet people from all around the country and the world, and just be happy.

                  1. Shit yes – I had an apartment where I sat on the back patio and looked at the mountains and way in the distance, Lake Dillon. Lots of summer activities, too – boating, fishing, golf, horseback riding, great. I sound like a tourism promoter for Summit County, but it was fun and full of nature and people. I learned lots of conversational Slavic, French, Japanese and Spanish just from coworkers and guests.

                    1. I’ve been begging Evan to move. That I want to get away from here. I’m torn. I have kids. I can’t move them away from their father. My house is perfect, I think I just don’t want to deal with the memories. My home makes me feel safe and warm though and it’s mine ya know? I can come here and relax and just be with myself. And my Thor (kitty) he’s my best friend ya know?

                    2. Maybe take a lot of pictures, and then move across town? I don’t know, but it seems like the memories will then be frozen in time, forever pleasant and happy.

  3. Rob, I don’t mean to be a downer but I tend to have to bring myself to reality sometimes when thinking in such a manner. To many times have I thought something would happen MY way. Then it doesn’t (Gee, I wonder why?). However, if you go in there with no expectations, whatever the outcome you just then deal with. For me, in situations like this, it’s easier. Just a suggestion 🙂

  4. Anywhere you live can be the best place, I suppose that’s up to you. 🙂

    People always want roots, I typically want movement so those conflict lol. I like the idea of living in different locations from time to time

  5. Every year, a list of the best cities in the US comes out… I can’t recall who publishes it. That might help you decide. California might be sunny and warm but it’s also super expensive! How about Arizona, New Mexico or South Carolina? 😃
