Waiting for the shrink

I could be waiting 6 weeks for the report from the court psychologist. I have no idea what he is going to do. He was deliberately cagey, and said he didn't like anyone trying to figure out what he is thinking. His questions sounded like his mind may have been made up, and he was just trying to document a detailed recommendation.

So, a couple of months from now, I'll probably be facing a supposedly-expert recommendation that attempts to micro-manage our lives. If I'm lucky, he'll say that I should be given another chance to correct all of my faults. If I'm unlucky, his report will take my kids away, and couch it is language about the best interests of the child. I'm told that the judge nearly always accepts the expert recommendations. So either way, I'll probably be under a court order to floss the kids' teeth, brush their hair, and keep them on a tight leash in the grocery store.
