Mike,

As it is SAT night I am giving you some - well earned - leeway:

Becoming 22 years old tomorrow and i dont like it one bit. I still want to be a "kid" somedays you know. real life is catching up with me so fast :p

Don´t you worry: You will *always* be a kid even if over 50, you won´t lose that (but you will have to find the lady that knows *and loves* it)...

I guess it is in our genes, but for women we will always have that "inunderstandable" kid aspect even when matured. I, personally, like and cherish this, we have enough roblems being real men, any "kid" relief is wellcome...

This said, you are still a "twen" after tomorrow, and many more years to come... CONGRATS, caballero!  champ

Number2: really really hoping I find someone to "love"; i've been alone all my life and i'm getting sick and tired from it. Mike is starting to need some affection Knipoog This my fault for a part, the few girls that were interested in me i didnt like that way, maybe i schould have a more "open-mind" about these things.


Not your fault as far as you dexcribe:If it its not worth it do *not* go for it... Do not rush things, live life the "Rattler" way, take it easy. How long has *your* life been by now? 4 yrs? 2 yrs? When did you start it on your own (left from home)?

I am looking back on some (startting with 17) 36 yrs now, and there are mysteries that haven´t revealed themselves to me yet, but one thing is sure for me: If it is to hit, it will. And then, it will be allright. I cannot give you much guidance as my life shows I havent even managed to get mine on line, but I believe that dropping your level of expectations is the wrong way to start things out...

We have a saying in Germany "Every pot has it´s cover", so: Just ride it out, don´t let anything burn and screw away all you can, but always have this eye open for what you really are looking for... Give, and do ot expect reward for it, the best way to go.

Number3: Hang out with my friends more.

Not a bad idea as such, but heavily contradicting your #2, methinks... Chicks AFAIK do not take a real liking to that... Smiley

Kindest regards, and "Happy Birthday!" to you:  champ

So,  what will you most remember about this year?  Either personally or generally?  Was it a good year for you?  Or not so good?

So, how was this year for you and what do you have planned for 2010?    Smiley

2009 in review:

January - Our youngest daughter went into the hospital to have an emergency C-Section done to save her and the baby. They were in the hospital more than a month each.

An Uncle died.

Having trouble with my joints swelling up. Having a hard time walking without crutches or a cane.

March - The woman that raised me as my Mom died. I couldn't afford to go the funeral.

April - Youngest daughter back the hospital and is operated on.

Lost my job because the company went bankrupt.

May - Got another job.

June - My best friend dies of cancer.

Koen and I have issues.

Went to see my Father. When I got back they fired me from my job.

Visited the Lady that raised me's grave and paid my respects.

July - My Father dies on our youngest daughters birthday.

Aug - Our youngest daughter is back in the hospital.

My wife's best friend and the wife of my longest gaming friend dies of breast cancer.

Having problems with my joints swelling up.

Sept - My joints swell to the point I can't walk. I finally go to the VA.

Stopped mortgage company from foreclosing on my home.

Middle daughter and her family move back from Kentucky. All the kids and grandkids back in Tx now.

Oct - Still can't walk without either a cane or crutches.

Start interview process with Coca Cola Company.  They were less than thrilled that I couldn't walk without a cane.

Youngest daughter back in the hospital. FINALLY she see's another doctor.

Sent to the VA hospital for x-rays. Had 32 x-rays done of all my joints and my back. Results were good. Electric bill much lower now since I now glow in the dark..... Brede lach

Nov - Finally get the correct diagnosis after 3 years. Find out I have rheumatoid arthritis. Get some medication that starts to work.

Coke drags out the hiring process for a secondary job.

Youngest daughter and youngest grand-daughter home for Thanksgiving. I can at least walk unaided for short periods. It was a good visit.

Dec - They hire someone else for the original position but are talking to me continuously about the secondary job. They are a strange company to do business with in HR. No reps here. Closest one in Dallas and then Atlanta.

The ESL (English as a Second Language)/US Citizenship program I direct gets local attention in the newspaper. We are growing slowly. Our entire organization is volunteer.

Midnight December 31st 2009 - By this time I will have had the worst year of my life and it will finally be behind me personally and for my family as well. Couldn't happen to a nicer year. Everything happens for a reason and what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.

That should mean I'm reasonably stronger for what happens for the rest of my life on this planet. I'll need that to help me with some of the left over issues that 2009 brought. But it should be easier to handle after what we've just been through.

Good Hunting.

MR

What a year, Im glad its behind you as well. As for the VA, if you dont have a rep, get one. They will guide you through the labrynth the VA has set up. Personally, I chose the American Legion because they were the advocates for starting the VA originally, so they have a lot of exp dealing with them. Though it took almost 3 years they helped get me the settlement I deserved. If the VA had their way, Id still be at 20% instead of the 80% I now have.

At your service,

Jody

Funny story:  my son came home from school today (he's 10 years old) and forever has the girls chasing after him.  Today, he told me that the boys in his class are telling him of a little girl in the next class who has a big crush on him.  

'What's she like?' I asked

'she's nice...I think'  he said.

'But I don't want talk about it Mom!'  and walks away.

I wonder if this is the same little girl who always runs after him in the playground to try and kiss him?  She got him one time already!    Grijns

He's a cutie, Sky.   He'll be a  heartbreaker one day.  I used to have people stop me in the street, shops, bus etc.  just to comment on how cute he was, ever since he was very little.  Little old ladies couldn't go past him without commenting and patting his head.   Smiley
