Anniversary No More

This should technically be my SIXTH wedding anniversary.

I'm sitting here, tearing my hair out, making all the necessary changes and applications. Why?

Because as of September 20, 2011, I have joined the ranks of many, many Americans as well as the list of scorned wives such as Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Aniston. I got divorced.

I should get a pin or something to commemorate this. Why, I'm practically a citizen now!

I got a bit slap-happy with photoshop...

Childish? Yes
Entertaining? Absolutely!! 

How am I doing? OK. =)
I'm still smiling.

To anyone who has faced with what I have, a big hug to you, and I promise - things get better.

That's what people kept telling me. And I do find that it's true. So perhaps the next most popular line that people tell me will too: "You're young and pretty...you'll find another easily". So far, I don't hear any knocks on the door, but I haven't given up yet!

At least people are telling you you're young and pretty! My DAD told me, "You know, you're nice-enough looking, but you're not as young as you once were, and you are damaged goods...I'm not saying you should settle, but, maybe, well, you shouldn't set your sights too high."

Why yes, Dad. Thank you for that reminder.
