Update

That did not go well, pretty much I have until the end of August to come up with $4000 or they won't renew my car registration. If you've read my whole blog you know my licenses was suspended for my first 2 years of sobriety, and no I did not drive anyway. It was hard on me and hard on my kids. The thought of not driving again is VERY upsetting.

But on my way home through my tears I actually felt bad for the judge. It would suck worse to be him that it does to be me. He knew how unfair it was and there was nothing he could do about it. I could tell he wanted to, but because of Arizona being the most backwards ass place in the world he couldn't. Now you know how I feel about the state I live in. I was going to always keep it under wraps, but today I don't feel like it.

  1. Emily, that sucks!!! I wish I had a solution, and I don't want to say"it will work out", that's the last thing you need!! We will all have to put our heads together on this one. I wish I was independently wealthy, it would be nice to help a friend!!!

  2. Same here doggielover... Where's my magic wand? This unfair practice of relentless prosecution / persecution is maddening indeed. Any appeal process? Payment plan? Friend or friend of friend Lawyer / conection?
    Loop hole? I'll ask around...
    I know Illinois is pretty outrageous with fines & lack of logic. Justice & fair practice are not required...

  3. Read page 417 of your Big Book. Nothing happens that's not in God's will. This will turn out as it should.

  4. I was making payments, I ended up in some that's not good enough program. Who knows? But what I so do know is Deanna is correct it will end up the way it's supposed to. That brings me great comfort. Thanks for listing to my pity party! Xo, em

  5. Emily,
    there was an article in our local newspaper about a 23 year old teacher who wanted to become a nun. She owed $52000 in student loans so the convent would not accept her. Some anonymous person heard her story and sent her a cashier's check for $52000. God works in mysterious ways. Maybe that anonymous person, or one just like him/her, will read your post!! Hang in there!

  6. "I wanna be a billionaire, so frickin bad"...."so I could give my friend Emily the money she needs. I wish there was something I could do sweetie....there is one thing I can do and that is to pray for you, pray for a way for this to resolve for you....and that is what I will do. I know, busy again today, but also thought I'd give you some time to yourself today....I know it wasn't a very good day for you....call ya tomorrow!

  7. Ok, this may be a weird idea, but everyone loves your blog, what if Dr. Phil, or People mag. or something like that sponsored a workshop for people trying to improve their lives and how they help others. They could charge a fee for the workshop and it would be a donation towards the speaker, You. Just thought I'd throw it out there, take care everyone!!

  8. Oh, my gosh! That is a fab. idea doggielover! I'd definitely contribute! I think getting Dr. Phil involved would take care of
    the 4000.00 in a heart beat! I know you have a personal relationship with Jesus and He is the only One who can help
    in desperate situations like this! Also, please remember to pray for the help of the Holy Spirit, He too, can do great things!

  9. Nothing tries to mess with our heads like finance and romance. I am a lawyer, but no little to nothing about Arizona law. Any research I can do for you, I would be happy to. You serve others so well through your service work and blog. Sometimes when I can't make it to a meeting, or if I just need something to refocus myself away from the clutter of my life, I check in with your blog. I totally agree with what Page 417 has to say, but darnit, sometimes I wish God would let me in on the plan! hehe.
    Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly.

  10. I know I am late in posting here. I have my crazy drinking issues that have cost me dearly.. I just think that the reality of our behavior just should be accepted and not be annoying... Every state is different and so we sit. The reality our behavior got us to a judge.. no one else. And yes we pay for awhile... Our choices back than working out still now. Again, Love you Emily but this might be the final step in correcting a legal journal for bad judgement. This comes from one who has walked at least a portion of your walk - Peace - You are an inspiration to me and many others ...
