This has not been the best year I've ever had. I would even go so far as to say that it's going out on a pretty low note.

Sometimes, Welsh Girl breaks down crying because she feels she hasn't done enough and that there are so many things looming over us. I just put my arms around her and tell her that tomorrow is another day. Some days I feel the same (without the crying, of course). As you all know, when things break down spectacularly, it's hard to see an end to it or a way out. You get caught in cycles that feed upon themselves. You know what, though? Change one thing and the entire cycle changes making other things easier to change. Soon you're in a whole new cycle and the bad times are a nostalgic memory or an interesting story to tell. All it takes is patience and time and some love to get you through. And I get that in spades (and no-trump, too). So I don't sweat it, too much. Tomorrow is a whole new year.

From the Satrapic Palace, I, Welsh Girl and the Despoina wish you all a safe, happy and joyous new year.

We look back at our first years in family, one $9 an hour income, and a basement apartment in Worcester...and yeah, they were awful years but not totally awful and they made us. I'd not trade it in for anything.

You'll all be perfectly OK.

when the Labour party came to power in the UK, the theme was "the only way is up". I'm hoping that's actually true in your case.

Good luck to you and yours.
