2008...Here's a Stink Eye in Your Honor!

2007 was a rough year for sure, but I held out hope that 2008 had great things in store for me. Let me tell you, 2008 must hold a grudge for me bad-mouthing its' buddy '07. My computer, David Bowie, officially died on May 2nd and the hassle-free, (ahem...), fantastical extended warranty that was purchased through Circuit City has been anything but. It's June 10th and I still have no functioning computer or suitable replacement. Both cable boxes decided to take a vacation together leaving one TV unwatchable and the other with a naked DVR list (tragic, I know). My car, Ron Burgandy, aka. Ron the Tucson, decided he needed some medical attention. Problem is, I can't be without a car, so it involved procuring a rental. Enterprise Rent-A-Car was less than prepared to provide me the car I reserved, trying to get me to drive a Toyota Tundra. I am petite. I do not drive monstrous trucks! 2 hours later I was 20 miles down the road at the next closest Enterprise providing all my info again to be put into a lovely, (ahem...), Dodge Caliber. In the midst of the brutal heat-wave at an uncharacteristically early time of year, our trusty AC unit decided that it wanted to crap out at 1:30 in the morning. Of course, heating and cooling specialists have been inundated with calls and the earliest appointment we can get is a mere 4 days away. I just keep seeing precious dollars fly out the door at an alarming rate. Every time I think, "Now what?" I am sure to find out. I'm sorry 2007 and 2008. I love you both and hope that you will forgive me! And Friday the 13th...I love you too!

Well, it's almost half a year in. Perhaps 2008 is just trying to get all of the quantifiable crappiness out of the way. Therefore enabling a smooth sailing, momentum-building, free wheeling ride into 2009. Which will, of course, be your best year ever.
