2010 Go Away

I have not yet had a wonderful 2010.

I have been diagnosed with major blood clots in my legs.

We had a major leak in our main water line.

My favorite dog (I swear she thinks I'm a rock star) had a seizure or stroke or something. She walks sideways now. The vet gave her vertigo medicine. Weird.

We are out of work (well, not totally...but not enough to make all of our bills).

On the other hand, it could have been worse!

I could have found out that I had blood clots by having a stroke.

I could have found out about the big leak by having a big sink hole in my driveway.

At least I have a dog that thinks I'm a rock star...even if she has to walk sideways to me.

At least we have the opportunity to find some work.

AND I still have this bizarre hope that this year will be a good one. I may be delusional.


  1. I understand what you're saying. My 2009 started with 3 deaths and a huge fight with my ex-best friend. And I am not a fighter. Took the whole year to recover, so I'm happy for 2010...

  2. Some years are just like that, aren't they? We've had worse years with betrayal of friends and profound sadness...but this year is almost comical the way it has begun.

    I tend to step back from confrontation as well. I'm not sure it is the best tact. I didn't defend ourselves in our friend situation and I think I still feel the bitterness that perhaps could have been resolved if I had only tried to defend us. Oh well. Too late now.

    Hugs to you for surviving 2009! Enjoy your 2010...I've not yet totally thrown in the the towel on 2010, but I am a teeny bit hoping for a fast forward to 2011!


I love a discussion!
