Today 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.
The 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.
