Good Bye 2012 and good riddance. 2012 has not been a good year for me in many ways. Jewelry sales at shows was awful this year. My income from the paper route is dropping due to an increase in the subscription rates and the ongoing slow economic recovery. I know that we are supposedly out of the great recession-but here we've yet to see much recovery.
My mental state wasn't much better. I suffered from severe depression with mood swings of anger and frustration. I finally broke down and went to a doctor. I'm now taking meds and feeling better than I have in many, many years.
I am looking forward to 2013! It's going to be much better!
