Today has been a good day. Haven't had to worry about seeing my ex around work because he doesn't work on Mondays or Fridays. Phew.

I also got some really great advice on one of my blogs about how to deal with the stress of running into him at work, and I'm trying hard to implement my "don't care" attitude. It's hard, but I always make sure that I'm smiling whenever I round a corner, so perhaps that makes my outlook a bit sunnier.

I'm planning to treat myself this weekend by getting a new dye job on my hair, plus some delicious-smelling lotion. I'm also going out to eat with my parents tonight when I get off work.

OH! And, KLUTERACOON, you should listen to F.U.N.'s "Carry On." It's become the theme song for my divorce.

    Ah! You have met my friend, Dani (Kluteracoon)It is difficult dealing with an ex at work,but it is inevitable given your circumstances. He is insignificant in your life now. You are strong,independant and he has no power over you.
    Do some fun things for yourself with loved ones. As I have told Dani in times past,they lift the spirit. I hope you have a great weekend.

    I'm glad you had a good day :)! I've gotten hooked on scentsy! I love it, it's made me feel soo much more at home.

    I love that song too. A few of my theme songs were "Fighter" by gym class heros. I also listened to Kelly Clarkson's Stronger CD, and Carrie Underwood's Blown away over and over again. Music got me through it just as much as people did. Music was my therapy. If I was upset I would listen to a sad song and belt it out as loud as I could. Lately I've been doing a lot of Florence + the Machine.

    I remember my first dye job after he had asked for the divorce and it made me feel on top of the world. It was also the first time I had ever seen myself as "sexy" If you check out my photos you'll see it. It was Light red on top and had bright fire red layered underneath.
