Hallelujah The Holidays Are Over

I survived my first holiday season post-divorce and completely single.

And it mostly looked/felt like this:

Now, let’s play a game called ‘Holiday Highlights with #hashtags ‘:

    Receiving word 6 days before Christmas that my divorce is 100% finalized. (This actually *sounds* a lot more reliving/fun/exciting than it is).
#CueSuperCuteMentalBreakDownAtRestaurant

Watching the spike in engagements and baby announcements/births on Facebook. #ANiceConstantReminderThatYourLifeIsAtAStandstill

Learning that a close family member, who is getting married this year, has chosen my wedding song as their wedding song.
#StartTheWineIVNowPlease

My mother telling me, in front of all the family, that I’m a terrible Dog-Mom #GladImNotPlanningOnHavingKidsBecauseObviouslyISuck

Being sick.  Repeatedly.
#IfFeelingEmotionallyShittyWasntEnoughLetsAddSnot

Inevitably and irrevocably missing those who are no longer around for the holidays… #DeathSucksEnoughSaid

The resurgence of insomnia.
#LetsAddDarkCirclesToYourHolidayApparelYay

 Walking in to Christmas Dinner and seeing the top of my wedding cake being thawed
#NothingLikeAVisualReminderOnChristmasDayOfYourDivorce

At least I’m still alive.  Here’s hoping 2014 isn’t so brutal…
