So far I class 2013 as horrible. Last year was crap and so far 2013 has not had a good start.
* Found out that my mums cousin committed suicide
* Just went to my freezer and it seems someone left the freezer door ajar overnight (defrosted meat)
* DS just broke a plate (not really that big a deal but just thought I would add it.)
So has the new year been a good start or bad start for you?

Bad. Sitting on the couch on New Years eve reflecting on 2012, and that even though we'd had a rough time on the TTC front, the other areas of our life were great.
Then one of my pets ran away. We spent New Years eve searching instead of partying and I've spent every day since searching. This year has been sucky so far

Bad here also.
New years day, a good friends was killed in a car accident,
Washing machine died
Car battery died...stuck at home, have no money to get new one
2 out of 3 kids have gastro bug...now me too
Its only the 4th
I desire to have a Happy 2013. hugs to pp

No real dramas so far, but I am hoping with all fingers and toes crossed that 13 is lucky for us.

Sadly a friend's husband died on New Year's Day so that was pretty awful. Otherwise though it has been pretty laid back.

Not sure yet. However I did have a dream 2 nights ago (how very timely!) about moving to a brand-new house, that's supposed to be an omen for new beginnings in your life so let's hope it's true!

Crap. Too hot, my anxiety is hitting me full force and some expectations I had from a certain person show no sign of being fulfilled any time soon. Sick of going over and over the same conversation, getting the same promise at the end and no follow through.

I've spent the start of the year waking up slowly while someone else plays with the baby, changing into bathers and walking to the river for a swim, coming back for someone to pass me a G&T or two or three at the Scrabble board while taking in the view of the ocean between turns.
It's going to be hard to keep up with that level of luxury for the rest of the year but it's certainly a good start.

Can I curl up in a corner somewhere and sleep out the rest of 2013??
In all seriousness... it can only get better, right?

I have pretty much cracked it, the kids are getting on my nerves in the first bit of 2013 and I find I am just losing it slowly !
maryanne - I am sorry your DH is being a bit of a douche lately, sometimes it is hard staying the course and saying no is seems that you're negative all the time, it sucks, I hope you can find some peace and soon. hugs.

Spent the first day of 2013 in A&E with a nasty rash which has since been diagnosed as shingles. Local weather forecast for today is 46.

Crap, been stuck at home with half my face swollen and in bad pain from a tooth. Finally got into the dentist today and got told I need root canal. I don't have the money Hoping the antibiotics today will clear up the infection and swelling. And it's the tooth next to my top front tooth so no way I am getting it pulled.

2012 was a very tough year for us, and ended with my best friend's husband having an accident causing brain trauma only a month after their wedding.
2013 has to be better.

Well considering I went to the hospital at 2am yesterday and got diagnosed with a kidney infection (again) I would say it is not off to the best start...
but trying to look at the positive in that at least I caught it early and it shouldn't go septic or anything like the last time and I was able to be discharged in the afternoon.
DD has a low grade fever too at the moment, but she is still bright and bubbly so hoping it gets no further.
This is meant to be my 'good' year...they used to be good years when odd, and bad years when even. I think they got mixed up though and last year was a good year

Mine has been fine. Pretty regular everyday life. Had a nice lead up although a quiet NYE as worked New Year's Day. Just waiting on settlement for our house in March so I need to start getting organized for the move. I'm very excited about moving, so I suspect 2013 to be a bit busy but a good year.
Posted 04 January 2013 - 03:26 PM
Sorry and hugs for everyone who's having a bad time. 2013 is good so far here - hot but manageable, DH and I are sharing the kids well, no real dramas. I do know that from February on our work is going to be very busy, so we need to keep smiling and living healthily through that.
Posted 04 January 2013 - 03:55 PM
So far, better than 2012.
I'm determined to be stronger in 2013!
So far, so good.
The kids are with me. Ex and I are getting along. I'm on holidays for another 3 days.
And it's cooler after a week of 40+ days.

I have had an awful 18 months with lots of life changing drama happening in my life. 2013 has shown some side effects from that still, with rumors being spread like wild fire about me. It's hard, I have lost a lot over the last 18 months, my world has been turned upside down and most 'friends' have now turned their backs on me because of rumors from one vicious family whom are in leadership at my ex church, so of course everyone believes them. The reason they are doing this is because I reported to other leaders about what this family had done to us (bullying and threatening) and they are trying to discredit us. There is nothing I can do about it.
But I got through worse crap in the last 18 months I can get through this. Gotta keep looking upwards and forwards.

Really good 2012 was crap.
I'm happy, kids are happy and DH is happy.
I feel for those that have had a rocky start to 2013.

I feel for all those that have had a crap start. It is awesome here.
