As we draw closer to the end of 2010 I cannot help but remember alllll the wonderful things I was supposed to have done and/or stopped before the year was out. Just like thousands, even MILLIONS, of others I had a laundry list of things I knew were going to happen. I just KNEW 2010 had to be financially more sound than 2009 and since I love even numbers, I just knew that the even number of the year was going to somehow aid in me accomplishing what I had set out to do/or stop.
Well, I can't speak for the rest of the world but for me and mine....2010 SUCKED!! I mean it sucked ROYALLY. I mean it didn't start out worth a damn and it ended just as poorly. The Economy shrouded Baby New Year like a cape and gave his little bottom a rash. Massive unemployment, watered down health care bill, Arizona showing it racist ass once again, the BP tragedy are only a few of the disasters that will forever go down in history as a few o f the highlights of 2010.
So, here I go again swearing that 2011 has GOT to be better than the prior year. As I roll my eyes in disgust at the thought of claiming this year as my year to lose weight (45 lbs), get our finances in a better place, cut out some of my online shopping (yes, I'm a shopaholic), and be nicer.....
oh hell, I'm just gonna try. Happy New Year to all and may 2011 give us what we middle and lower class people need. A damn break.
