It's that time of the year, time to enjoy the holidays, eat to much and look back at the past year. 2016 was a rough one. We lost too many people to even count, John Glenn being the most recent - at least he loved a long life at 95 - but many didn't.
Then the election. God I don't way to think of it. I woke on Wednesday to see the results. It was the first time I every real thought please let me be dreaming and when I look at my phone again, it will have changed. Things have only gotten worse in that sphere.
If I try to block out all the stuff that doesn't touch me personally, it hasn't been too bad - well except crashing my car in February and not being able to afford to replace it so we've become a one car family. But that feels like old news now.
Mentally I'm in a much better place than I was last year. I'm calm relaxed and feel able to work but no one wants to hire someone who hasn't worked in 2 years and hasn't had a position that lasted more than 2 months since 2011. So the job search is leading no where fast.
Everyone at home is healthy and happy, so that makes me happy. 2016 was a really mixed bag but I guess when all is said and done, it could have been worse. I mean I found several sets of penguin charms I made a few years ago ready to be made into earrings. I saved one set for me and put the rest for sale. There is always a silver lining.
