This has been a good year for me. No death or serious illness with any close relatives. I paid off my home so i'm debt free. My investments are at an all-time high and i've increased my savings rate to approx. 2/3 of my income which is also at an all-time high even though it's still low compared to most here($48K/yr pre-tax).

I completely understand your feelings, MountainToSea. You have endured extreme loss, and it would not be normal to feel other than the way you do. I have had more than one "Annus Horribilus" in my 56 years, beginning with my mother's death from colon CA within 4 months of diagnosis when she was only 61 (and I was a junior in college). Then over the years the loss of my father and my husband, both suddenly. I think I have finally quit asking "why?" but it has taken a very long time. Trust me, things will get better.
I hesitate to say that this year is "good" for fear of the consequences of my pride (the evil eye, you know). I will call it so-so...nothing terribly good or terribly bad...so far knock wood. I'll take it.

My heart goes out to the board members with losses and ailing health for you or loved ones. 2010 has been overall good one! Took military leave from my state job that was getting depressing to go on active duty as a recruiter - right here at home in NJ - can do this for up to 5 years. (more money/paycheck!) Moved in officially with DBF - no major growing pains there, and we are getting along wonderfully. Lost 14#s since April (actually had to get measured since I was over the weight chart for the first time ever back in May - but not this week!) woohoo! Took a fabulous vacation to OR/WA with DBF. Heading home with DBF to CA for Thanksgiving with my family. Passed my SPHR certification in Jan. Finshed (diploma and all!) my MSHRM. Struggling with the new dx of roseacea - this is miserable but definitely not life threatening. DBF and I are purging tons of our own respective stuff to sale at a big yard sale next spring. Was invited to speak at a convention, which landed me on some unofficial guest speaker list...have recieved a few more invites to talk some more - more amusing than flattering. Hoping for an even better 2011!

Condolences to all. So far so good this year. One old friend who I had lost touch with.

Last year an aunt, her daughter and SIL, and my Brother all within months.
Year before MIL.

I am glad to see that I am not the only one that feels this way . I can remember driving down the road and thinking my life is perfect right now . It feel apart shortly and stayed that way for several years so now I just take life as it comes .
