TOPIC: Anyone else having a rough start to the New Year?

Anyone else having a rough start to the New Year? 12 years 8 months ago #1

It has been a crazy beginning to 2008 for me. We have my neice until she goes into foster care that was the first of the month and last night at 11:13 my grandfather passed away and its really killing me not to mention one of my favorite actors also was found dead yesterday, Heath Ledger was only 28 and alot of people were looking forward to his role as The Joker in the new batman movie.... Well anyways just wanted to know if anyone else was having a rough time and just needed to let some emotions out real quick thanks guys for letting me vent its much appreciated <br /><br />Thanks <br />Iva

Yup - as I mentioned in another thread, I ended/started the year out as technically homeless (for a few days).  Then my supervisor at work decided she wasn't coming back after her maternity leave (and I really liked her as a boss) so we're 2 people short on my team (of 5) and we have a hiring freeze - and more work coming in because we are switching to a new database.  And all of this came up just as I was supposed to start football practice, which means another year of not being able to play.  Bleh.<br /><br />So, more of just a 'yuck' year than a rough one... but thanks for the opportunity to vent.<br /><br />Hope yours gets better.

there was a death in my family recently; funeral this past saturday. the week before, my mother was in the hospital again. and my sister had surgery. i can sort of relate to you. <br /><br /> things always get better, sometimes it takes longer than we like. what got me through recently was the kindness of strangers (not trying to sound cliche'). small acts of kindness that i usually don't give a second thought to. <br /><br />hope it gets better for you.  =)

Well my year started as anticipating my husband getting laid off with the understanding that it is a buearcratic rule by some bean counter for contractors(something about temporary permenant workers).  His boss doesn't want to have to do this but is forced to by upper management and then he can come back as soon as the obligatory timeframe elapses (whatever that is hopefully not much).  I am starting Business statistics for my undergraduate degree so really can't afford to take a second job to help make up the difference on the income.<br /><br />Had a somewhat expensive furnace repair the end of last year and getting over that.  <br /><br />My younger sister and brother in law are in the progress of adopting a little boy from guatemala but the proceedings are going far slower than for their first adopted child and she is bummed.<br /><br />My husband and I are trying to get a fledgling ship game system and minis business off the ground and out to conventions and possibly stores but again that costs extra money.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Everything happens for a reason and we just have to be patient.<br /><br />Thanks for listening.  Hope the year does improve.

If it makes you feel any better Iva, Heath will still be the Joker. His filming was finished and he had been working on another movie already.<br /><br />Brian
