A note to 2008

Or more aptly - a note to the 21st Century - YOU SUCK!!!

And 2008 - you could be the worst year of the 21st century to date, for me at least. Loss, Loss, Loss. That just about sums up how I feel right now. Loss of loved ones, loss of pets, loss of money, loss of security, loss of stability, loss of relationships, loss of careers, loss of dreams... Shall I go on?

I cannot take this anymore...cannot stand it anymore.

Loss of loved ones...
Tony's Dad died, Aunt Pattie Died

Loss of Pets
Jake, Chelsea, Emma, Lexi, Bailey, Rusty, Bella. Yes most of these died in their due time, but Bailey wasn't supposed to die, he was only six months old. Lexi was only a year and Emma still should have had 5 years left.

Loss of Money
Tony lost his job for almost 4 years. Struggling paycheck to paycheck. Using Credit to get groceries or get by.

Loss of Security
No job is safe anymore and there are hardly any jobs out there.

Loss of Stability
Refer to Loss of Money - Loss of Security.

Loss of Relationships
Losing friends and social situations due to Loss of Money. Losing closeness in the marriage due to Loss of Money, Loss of Security and Loss of Stability. Oh yeah, people die too.

Loss of Careers
Cannot afford to go back to my career due to loss of jobs. Cannot start a new career due to Loss of Money.

Loss of Dreams
All of the above.

I sure hope 2009 is better than 2008 was!
