2010... I made it.

I have so many things to talk about, but what I really want to talk about most, I'm not allowed to talk about yet.

It's quite the conundrum.

That being said, I should probably do a "best of 2010" type of post, except that I'm feeling more like "I survived 2010" because honestly? Worst year ever.

Wait, I should probably rephrase that before everyone starts privately emailing me. gah. YOU GUYS.

2010 was HARD.

It kicked my trash.

It's still kicking my trash, and I'll be working on the things that went down this year for a long time.

I've never talked about this before, but readers: I am in the middle of losing my house. My Arizona house. My house that we spent 3 years remodeling. The house that we finally finished grouting the week before I moved to Virginia. The house that we have been renting/trying to sell for the last 2 years. The house that up until 2 months ago, we were still paying the mortgage on. The house that has literally sucked every penny out of our savings account and then some as we continued to pay double mortgages on for more than two years. The house that is probably going to end up in foreclosure, and may force us to file bankruptcy. Yeah, that house.

I am incredibly frustrated by the whole situation, and I would be lying if I didn't say that I wish we would have walked away from it 2 years ago, back when we still had extra money.

And that's only the tip of the iceberg.

Relationships have been tested this year, and after a stunt that was pulled earlier this fall, I decided to cut some people out of my life. Fortunately for me, they're so vain and full of themselves that they haven't even really noticed. In fact, they're probably reading my blog right now, shaking their heads, and wondering who I'm talking about. Such is life.

I am just ready for this year to be DONE, because I know 2011 is going to be awesome.

I feel it in my bones.
