Happy Monday! And a happy Monday it is indeed. While we did not get all we had asked/hoped for in court, it was still a victory. None of us actually had to testify, which is good, and the judge DID revoke bond, which is also good. CF is now in jail, but he can get out as soon as he obtains an ankle-monitoring device at his expense. Once that happens, he can go to the two AA meetings he regularly attends and to work, and that is it. I know, I know, it isn't fair, but this is something, and we feel like it is definitely acceptable. I have been looking online for info regarding the ankle monitoring device, but haven't been able to get much info. I hope it is hard to get, really expensive, and also extremely inconvenient for him.
That said, I think that I am going to have to do more private posts on occasion if I feel like I need to write about any of this. There were television cameras in the courtroom this morning, and I was mentioned by name during the hearing. It was all very tense and scary, and to err on the side of caution, I can't talk much more about it publicly. I think I have been pretty careful about making sure I am writing opinions and facts only, not mentioning his name and such, but still. If you haven't already gotten on my list for private invites, please do so now so that when I do a private post, you will get the invite.
Anyway, here's where I am now-grateful. Happy. Glad that we were heard and taken seriously.
