|As we head into 2011, how would you assess the past 12 months? I know for some of us, there were hard times, for some there was unsettling change, and - maybe for some - status quo. Perhaps, like me, there was some of all during the year.
Since August, I've become accustomed to spending about four days out of each week alone as the MOTH goes to school in another town. Sometimes it's OK; sometimes I feel burdened by all the mundane around-the-house work with no one to share it. I'm happy, though, that he is doing so well and is gaining confidence and skill in becoming a nurse.
We still have made no progress in getting out of this house and into another one near the school. The RE market is nowhere near where we could make a decent profit on this house. Not happy about this situation at all. I do NOT want to spend another summer in this godforsaken furnace.
Healthwise, it's been up and down. This coming week, I'll get an x-ray and MRI to try and find out what causes the debilitating pain that strikes over and over. It may be scar tissue or bone spurs in cervical vertebrae. Whatever it is, I hope this coming year brings a solution so I can get on with living - even with a level of tolerable pain. I'm sure I'm not the only one here dealing with pain.
Moneywise, nothing changed; Lincoln still squeals when the penny is pinched. It would be nice if 2011 brings a little relief to the pocketbook.
So how is everyone here?
