Hello, again!

Well, we hoped to win, but, alas, it was not to be... It is curious how it seems as if the year is only beginning now!
I have higher hopes for the rest of the year, I hope to defeat debt in our lives, depression in this house, willing us to pick ourselves up and out of the rut of hopelessness to move forward with plans and life! It seems such an effort at times, but up and forward IS the only way!
There will be elections later on this year, which makes for boring campaign ads and revelation of sordid scandals. This year, both sons will be voting too - hopefully they will choose well.
I have gone back to cross stitching to bring some entertainment and beauty to my "spare" time (my escape time, actually). 
As usual, I have a yearning to go back to sailing more regularly, however, I don't quite see how that is going to happen, considering our present state of affairs ( club fees in arrears, no money to travel down there and spend the weekend). 
I must learn to be content with my lot and face up to the natural consequences of having been remiss with finances - but it is SO hard, sometimes it seems as if we work, work and work and there is no reward at the end of the day! I am tired of this state of affairs, I mean, wouldn't you??
