The Good, The Bad & The Ugly of 2010

The Good part of 2010 was
the birth of my grandson & living only 13 miles from him!
meeting fellow bloggers Linda & Doris at a quilt show
having a healthy family
attending my nephew's wedding
getting together with all my family at Christmas
visiting friends & relatives in May and October
having my brother return from Kabul
and my DH who is such a wonderful guy I couldn't do without
The Bad part of 2010:
the death of my boss and very dear friend, Fr Paul Strittmatter, S. J

And the worst of 2010 was the death of my father. But now he is back with mom and he has no more pain or suffering.
More of the Bad:
my car was hit by an uninsured driver a week ago
I lost my job (of 17 years) in November
I am already tired of looking for a job
I am not getting lots of sewing done (like everyone keeps asking)'s hard to do anything at this time.
And the Ugly
was my basement until I finally got some of the clutter tossed out.
And taking care of my grandson and his mom the last couple of days cos they had the flu, and the baby couldn't keep anything down. He was so miserable. But he's on his way to feeling better. He kept a bottle down tonight. Wow, can 1 little baby make an ugly mess and a lot of laundry when he is sick.

So good by to 2010, I won't miss you! Here's to 2011 and a new start with a new year!!

So sorry to hear you lost your dad Patty. I lost my mom 2 years ago and my brother 1 year ago and it's still hard. Hang in there and I wish you a better 2011!
