I don't know about anyone else, but I'm having a really difficult time getting into the Christmas Spirit this year. The economy sucks, everything just seems more difficult this year, and it's getting harder to see the light at the end of the tunnel. They weren't lying when they say "when it rains, it pours." I can't help but be more excited for the new year to begin and 2009 to just be over. Maybe the year 2010 will be better, we can only hope. I remember in the early 80's, things were a little tough for a few years. I think the year 2009 has topped that and this is one of the worst recessions the United States has seen in years. We can only hope that things will turn around in the new year. Nothing in life is what I knew it to be. Sometimes, I wonder is this what is left of everything I worked so hard to build and if I will ever get my old lifestyle back.
