Like a few others on here I am not feeling the holiday spirit either. This year has been the most horrendous in my 37 years. Although others have had it much, much worse than us, it just doesn't seem to stop. I just can't seem to catch a tiny break. Even my parents asked me if I ever have any good news (jokingly). I said yes, at least my mortgage is current and I'm not pregnant! Daily grind with a difficult child. husband is still out of work. I had to put a beloved fur buddy down. Our home was robbed. husband almost decimated our marriage. I was sick all of October. husband & difficult child were just t-boned on Friday by a 16 yr old who just got her license. Car is a total loss. Older one, so no great compensation. And other irksomes that are not worth a mention, but really didn't need to crop up. Just having a bit of a pity party for myself. My list certainly can't compare with others, but for me it has been a h*ll of a year. On the other hand, I have been blessed with a loving, stable family growing up, parents who are still in love and together and a good brother and no real major trauma in my life. My husband, minus his crud this year, has always been loving and supportive and continues to be. My hardest hurddle has been dealing with a difficult child. Everything that happened this year, just seems way to much and way too bizzare. So I am saying GOODBYE 2010 (ahead of time). May 2011 bring better things to all.
