▼ The Car that crashed and went for scrap
▲ The sons survived and came home unscathed
▼ Kid #1 tried so hard but did not get what he wanted …. broke my heart to see him facing such a hard time
▲ He discovered talent in something I did not expect. Am so proud of you – ‘Shine on you crazy diamond’
▼ Kid #2 has no vehicle to go to college
▲ He discovered resourcefulness! Good on ya, boy. I am impressed. Carry on
▼ I grew negative, unreasonable and gave my family hell. Yes I can be such a melodrama queen …. sorry Kid#1, Kid#2 and DIL
▲ Kid#2 counseled me, he can actually talk sense, I am impressed. But the most impressive thing was Kid#1’s non-verbal example. If anything, he should have been the emo person, but he has achieved Zen. He is so much in control. He does not preach, but teaches by example.
▼ I’ve been a brat
▲ My sons have grown into mature human beings, they make me proud. Something I have done right in my crazy life!
▼ Had a fight with “The Shoulder” really bad one. Thought I would not have him in my life any more.
▲ Everything worked out for the best.
▲ Lost weight. Hallelujah and Blow me Down!!! I actually do have a waist!
▼ Finances, sigh!!!! 😦
▲ We own our house and our cars and manage to live a reasonably good life
▼ DILs office made her work so hard, we hardly saw her
▲ She got promoted, Way To Go Girl!!
▼ My book was panned by certain book agents
▲ Sent it to Rupa since I refused to believe it was bad. Rupa accepted it 😀 😀
▼ Unhappiness – mostly self created
▲ Friends and family that loves me and stands by me
۞ Lesson learnt, have faith in self and be more appreciative of the family that stands by me and the friends who love me.
Love you guys a lot
Let us see what 2011 brings
