Day 6

February 28, 2006

It’s day 6 and I’m already being set up by friends and I’m not sure what to think about it. But it’s one of those things where someone asks you out and then makes up an excuse about why they’ve just invited someone else. So I go to lunch with my new best friend that has been absolutely terrific throughout my breakup and she brings along a friend of hers. I figured it can’t hurt, right? And I’ve always heard that the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. Nice guy and absolutely hilarious but I didn’t feel the spark. You gotta feel the spark.

So another girlfriend called and told me about these hilarious new cards for all sorts of occassions at They’re a riot!! There are cards for breakups, divorces, nose jobs, lesbian weddings, and a whole host of others. I have to have them.

Tonight I’m going to be busy trying to locate my hair products because there is no way that I’ll be able to go one more day without washing my hair properly. I tried to do at my nana’s this weekend but everything is just all wrong there and you end up looking worse no matter your effort. I also need to shave…badly. Especially since a girl is newly single.


Day 5

February 27, 2006

Day 5 is a rough one. Days 1 through 4 of a major breakup are full of what I like to call “survival challenges.” Those days are so full of activities that must be completed quickly that there’s no time to rest and write so I apologize that this entry is minus the juicy breakup details. The first few days after having your heart crushed are all about packing, moving, and erasing all the memories of him from every part of your life. I left out the biggest part…repeating the story for what seems like a hundred times to all your friends and family. But of course it’s during those days that your friends want to tell how much they didn’t care for the guy. Where were you like 3 years ago?!! On day 5, once everyone knows the story, the gravity of the situation sets in. You begin to realize why dogs were put on this earth. Day 5 is a lonely one. You don’t know where you packed your shoes or what you’re going to eat for dinner. You start thinking about what went wrong and what you could’ve done to prevent the breakup from happening. Personally, I don’t think I could’ve done anything short of becoming a born-again Christian, stay-at-home mom who likes to surf, play guitar, swim and listen to Jimmy Buffett. So during day 5, I’m going to concentrate on myself and resist the urge to think about what he’s doing. Because I know that while I’m at home cuddling with my dog, he’s running the streets like a dog in heat. Wish me strength.

Just like me.

I changed the page theme of my blog to “white as milk” simply because I had to. I’ve heard that about my skin forever and right now I could use a dose of whatever it is that guarantees a pick-me-up.

Hello world!
