Things are starting to come together. I was awarded very generous settlements for both the house and the car. I bought a car yesterday and will sadly say goodbye to my much loved camry. I will be able to repair the house and have some left over. I have been frustrated with the process more than I should have been. I recognize that I tend to stuff my emotions to the back burner on major things and then have it erupt over lesser ( in the scheme of things) events. I really need to get back into therapy.
