Mark did get the engagement ring back. He said Patty cried over it. I don't understand that, since she had promised to give the ring back if this happened, so it shouldn't have come as a surprise. Mom thinks that the reality of this whole thing is finally hitting her. I said it's a little late for that.
Dad is acquainted with a lawyer in our parish who does divorces. He's waiting for a call back from her. Mom said that they'll help with the lawyer fees.
Mark said that he expected them to fight over the kids, so he was prepared for that. He wasn't prepared for them to fight over his X-Box 360. *rolls eyes* Of course she wants it -- she "hardly" plays it, according to Mark, but it's something she bought for him and he plays all the time.
