2010 Goes Down in History as the Worst Year Ever! (and it's only March)

First we had the MRSA incident. After that, Mateo started heading downhill with his moods. Then a very close friend of mine died last week unexpectedly. It's been very hard on me and my family. This weekend someone broke into our new house (where we are not living yet) and stole a bunch of my husband's tools that he's been collecting for years and our brand new washer/dryer. They did have the courtesy to take the laundry out of the washer before stealing it. Thankfully I don't have to replace the kids clothes too. But it sucks. We have a $2,000 deductible on our homeowner's insurance so we have to spend at least that much to get the stuff back. Not what we needed at all since our house renovations are far from done and if people didn't already know this, renovating a 1853 house costs money!

Plus, we are behind on all our work. We really need to move in soon so we can stop carrying two mortgages. No one has expressed interest in buying our current house. Maya's adoption isn't even close to happening yet, although her birthday/adoption party is this weekend. Speaking of Maya, she turned one last week. I have a post all ready about how fabulous she is! But I want to add a picture (from behind) and haven't had a chance yet. That will be next.

Anyway, the point is...2010 is officially the worst year ever! I'm hoping by June I'm not saying that anymore.

That is a lot to handle! PRAYING!

I am so sorry. That sounds trite, but I don't mean it that way. I agree with you. How horrible.

They say that life here on earth is like a wheel. Sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down. And I know that what's been happening to you now is just temporary. Like me who's been down financially for the past five years. And great thing is that, in our town of Palm Desert, insurance companies have great insurance policies for clients. Same also in our neighboring town of Palm Springs, insurance companies also have great insurance services for their community.

Let us not forget that our life is like a wheel because there are no certainties here on earth. And believe me when I say this to you that someday, you will be at the top again.
