So long, 2014...


Don't let the door hit you on the way out...

Well, another year's on its way into history. It was a year where most everyone seemed to get rainbows, while I just got rain. (Seriously. I saw the pictures all over the news sites. I only saw maybe three rainbows all year long, and one tried to wreck my car.) Yes, I acknowledge there were good spots now and again, but the bad, irritating, and downright frustrating ones tip the scales in review. In the end, I'm pretty much where I started, I suppose, and given the rate of inflation change remains too expensive for my budget.

But at least I'm not on fire, I suppose. (Positive thinking sometimes requires lowering one's standards of happiness... and even then there's plenty for the universe to gnaw off.)
