What a great word.  Flabbergasted.  It sounds like a child’s board game.  Its meaning though: verb (used with object) to overcome with surprise and bewilderment;astound. accurately describes me feelings at yet another custody hearing for my children.  This time it wasn’t about who has them what nights, it was about time.
