    Can't wait for this year to be over

    Man, this has been a tough year for me

    - 4 months of unemployment with no safety net
    - Possible cancer diagnosis
    - Lasik surgery needs an enhancement...again
    - Now I learned that I have a double hernia

    On the bright side

    - Bought an AR15
    - Bought a Benelli M4
    - Took a couple of classes
    - I didn't have to shoot anyone yet.

    I wonder what 2010 has in store?
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    EactlyMyPoint, I can relate. Had a tough year myself. Praying for a better 2010. I'll include you in my prayers.

    Well, let me count the ways....

    1.) 10% cut in pay beginning early this year

    2.) Did not receive my customary 4% increase in March.

    3.) Suspension of 401K match

    4.) Six UNPAID "furloughs," each a week in length

    5.) No end-of-year bonus

    But, considering the plight of others, who have it a lot worse than me, I have plenty to be thankful for. Let's all hope for a better 2010!

    I too am hoping for a better year in 2010.

    I'll spare you most of the details....but I work in Real Estate...2nd & Lux Homes. Any of you buy a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th home this year? Thought so.

    Many of you have me beat on the negative list. But many others have you beat as well. I hope this next year brings a light at the end of the tunnel for all.

    I guess I can't complain about my situation this year. Other than a few injuries I have changed jobs for more money and more responsibility, had a new Son, paid off most of our debt (1 card left to go), bought an AK and met many new people while getting more involved in our new church.

    I hope all who have had it rough this year will find 2010 better, especially after the mid term elections.
