2009 just sucked.

2010, I donít know what Iím expecting out of this year, but Iím really truly hoping that itís a hell of a lot better than 2009. Only a handful of people know the majority of the crap that Iíve gone through in 2009, and itís really a spider web of shite that is hard to explain. To finally put 2009 to rest, Iím going to map out, vaguely, a lot of the problems that I experienced. Iím not doing this chronologically, because honestly, itís so intermixed that it would be hard to do so. If I went into a lot of detail Iíd have a post that could rival War and Peace in length.

Health Issues: Both Ktreva and I had some serious health issues. She had cancer and I had all my gastro/stomach issues. Part of which we are both still dealing with. Stress did not help my health issues at all, and usually aggravated it to a point that it caused complications. Because of these it had a negative impact and caused problems with: Finances, Work, Family and Friends.

Work Issues: There were a lot of issues that came around from work. At the beginning of 2009 I was still dealing with the backlash of Okla-farooking-homa. In fact I was still dealing with those issues in December. I had a real fear of going to jail over some practices my office was doing that had my name on it as ďin chargeĒ when really I had no say in the matter. It got so bad I was actually talking to the Stateís Attorney and had a crap load of documentation backing up my innocence and ready to turn over for immunity, nothing ever happened with this because of my actions everything was corrected. We also had lay offs, inventory problems, Government intervention mandate issues, and other peopleís mistakes I have to clean up. All of this over and beyond my normal workload. It had a negative impact and caused issues with: Family, Friends and Health Issues.

Family: Between struggles with Boopie and his grades. Clone and his behavior, dealing with the health issues, stress from work, arguing over finances, trying to help friends and some very extensive marital issues that are still unresolved, there was no comfort in family for me this last year. Especially the last half of the year. Due to a lot of this some friends were dragged into situations that they shouldnít have been and put them in a tough spot. This impacted work, friends, health issues and finances.

Finances: With as many health issues we had, we both missed a lot of work over the last year, much of it unpaid. Most of the time I was off was unpaid, same for Ktreva. Throw on top the cost of medical bills, even with insurance; there were months we had issues making ends meet. This impacted Family

Friends: We missed multiple re-enactments and friend outings due to health issues, family, finances and work. With a lot of the issues going on, some of my friends felt they were being alienated by me. It really wasnít the case as much as I didnít want to discuss my personal problems with them and that, even though they are some of my best friends, itís still none of their business. Some people like to air all of their dirty laundry; Iím not one of those types. If I need to talk I will, but Iím not going to spread my business around just because. Most of them when I explained to them that it was a private issue and I just didnít want to involve them in it, they let it go and all was well. There was also a nasty rumor that was being spread about me that was completely untrue. Someone thought they new something with out any facts and started telling people their opinion but stating it as fact and the last I heard is still spreading it, even after being confronted. This impacted Health Issues, Family and work.

As I write this, I think about all the unresolved issues from 2009 that are at least going to bleed into 2010. Iím just hoping that I will be able to get everything worked out. At the beginning of 2009 I had made a prediction that I thought it was going to be a really good year. How wrong was I?

HEH! I just realized how ironic we both did posts on how 2010 can't be any worse than what we just went through LOL

As always man, you know where I am for anything, and I always got your back bro

the vast majority or 2009 sucked ass for me as well. Not as badly as it did for you, though.

I need to start some new rumors to take your mind off of it.

I'm looking forward to Grau's rumors. I think he may be the King of Smart-assery. Is that a word? It is now.

Well, hell, let's hope this year is better. If anything, let's hope the health for both of you improves. Perhaps with that, everything else will fall into place.

You are all, always in our prayers here. We could all use a better 2010.

I threatened last year, but this year, for sure, we need to have a Blogger Blastorama as soon as the weather permits. Let me know what works for you and we'll figure a way to make it happen. And if there's anyone you want me to kill- erm, I mean- if there's anything I can do, just let me know!!
