I remember when my ex husband and I broke up. He was constantly posting on Facebook his “happy” photos out with his girlfriend. I would quit looking at it and then a friend would say OMG did you see that recent post and then like a junkie I would start again. I guess it’s a process since a few months later I just stopped cold turkey and have never looked back. So much happier now!
It's was so weird for me to date after being married for fifteen years. It does feel like you are on the bottom floor when you first have to start answering that you are separated when people ask if you are married. I did panic a little and it was so awkward. After awhile, you find your own words to answer the married question and then it's easy. I'm finally divorced and have arrived at the top floor! -Linda S.
"CRACKING UP" is such a great title. My divorce in Atlanta lasted over two years with endless child support issues. I did feel like this cartoon, in pieces swallowed up in a blur. But we all eventually get to the finish line. So, I pulled myself out, put myself back together and focused on having a better life. Now I keep my unbreakable reminder on my kitchen table. -Janie B
I drew the Marriage Fairy with happy colors because that is what I felt like on the day I got married, when yes I did want to know EVERYTHING about him.
So why the Halloween Colors in my second picture? When I was a small child Halloween was scary, weird and so out of balance with your everyday life. That’s what was like when the Divorce Fairy showed up at my house. Scary, weird and out of balance except no one wears a costume except the judges! And divorce lasts WAYYYYY WAYYY longer than Halloween.
This Halloween, I am going as the “Fun Fairy” to end this Trilogy of Fairies on a happy note!
I filed for divorce last week after my husband moved out. What a whirlwind trip it is in Divorceland! Who knew when your soon to be ex leaves the 7 dwarfettes of divorce show up? I am sure Frazzled, Mopey, Lopey and Doc will be gone soon! -Carol C.
My girlfriends got me this coloring book and have been on a mission to get me to date again after my divorce. I was married for over 20 years. We went on a girls night out and I just cracked up. Some things are still the same. Lots of frogs out there and it is time for me to find a new lily pad! -Erin A.
My sister called and said I am sending you a comic coloring book on divorce. Here is your to do list. Go to the Snuggle Hunk page and get ready to laugh. We are having a marital bed redo party for you.
1. Go to TJ Max or Marshalls and get the goofiest, tacky bedspread you can find, buy it and bring it home.
2. Go on the attic and get your old maternity body pillow.
3. Don't make plans for next weekend. Gary (who I told you not to marry) has the kids that weekend and I am driving up to see you with some of your high school friends.
I buy a denim and pink spread and shams. I thought denim went out in the 80's! The doorbell rings around 8:30 on Friday night. In comes the wines, my sister and 3 really good friends from high school to bring lots of laughs. We take off my old bedspread and put on the new one. It is horrible but funny and it actually feels good to see something new that does not remind me of my Ex. Next comes the making of the Snuggle Hunk. My sister brought a gray men's shirt and we all start making a Snuggle Hunk. We put post it notes on the Snuggle Hunk of everything I want my next partner to be and say to me....
I woke up the next morning happy for the first time in months. That stupid looking Snuggle Hunk was laying next to me and I just burst out laughing. I decided to keep him on the bed where my Ex used to sleep. Turns out laughter does help and I don't feel so alone anymore. I am going to get a real Snuggle Hunk one day. It is kind of like a fake it tell you make it philosophy! -Lucy W.

With the Golden Globes happening this month and my divorce finalized i colored up my globe awards! Happy 2018!! -Anonymous Sender
