Ready for New Years.

Can I just admit, here and now, that I am really ready for this year to draw to an end?

I won't miss it.

Truthfully, it hasn't been really the best of years. It hasn't been the worst, either, but, things have just kind of happened this year that I could have lived without.

Work things

family things.

Every things.

I can give some examples.

January second found MM and I off the road in his jeep. Now, yes, jeeps are made for offroad, but not for SLIDING off the road, ending up in the middle of a clump of trees.

In February? It snowed. A lot. And a tree fell dangerously close to the house, actually hitting it in a narrow miss.


OH, the mustang was wrapped around a pole by some guy taking it to the sandblaster in preparation for painting it.

We also have a dead Lincoln Continental. It may be revive-able, though.

I cut sections off the tips of two of my fingers with an evil work razor.

2 weeks later I stabbed myself in the palm with a knife.

MM got his first speeding ticket in years.

I could go on, but I won't. Because it is counter productive...

Don't get me wrong, I am not miserable, not unhappy, not un-satisfied. I have things and people to be grateful for, I can usually find something to smile about every day. If I can't, I go and google Calvin and Hobbes and look at the snowman series. That always brightens me. And I have the best friends a girl could ask for, and I wouldn't trade either MM or MG for anything.

But this year has kind of been a bitch.

And I am going to be happy to count down its end.

Come on, 2010.

I know it's going to be a good one....

Maybe the holidays will be extra good this year and balance out all the crap?

I am ready for this year to be over .. on the plus side we sold the FL condo but not soon enough to avoid paying tax on it .. Florida, unlike most other states, taxes you in arears, if that's the right term ... you pay for the preceding year ... so after closing we will get back 15 days worth of tax, monthly maintenance and a rebate on the yearly 'warranty' we pay on the condo's applicances and AC

This year has been okay for me, overall. Still, I always look forward to the next year. They all go by so fast anymore!!!
