    The relative around the corner who refuses to step up is a familiar character. I suspect every family has at least one.

    I hope they recover your car, and I hope you get your MIL situated. I'm glad all the heavy lifting was done while you still had the strength. 2019 has to be better!

    I can very much relate to 2018 being a "sh**show", as I had my own version. I know very many people that 2018 was not kind too. I am at the point of "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" because that is the only way to look at it here at the tail end.

    The amount of stress you have had this year is very great; I hope you have been able to at least take care of your physical self the best you can.

    My horrible year included: losing my only child (daughter), and having my otherwise relatively healthy body decide to go kaput in many ways ~ a wrist surgery, and an ongoing problem with my gluts, hip muscles and my lower back muscles spazzing out. IN addition, I now am having a problem with horrible hemmor****s and the indignity of it is so embarrassing! I'll probably need to go to a specialist in the new year...

    However, in spite of it being about 5 degrees right now and lots of snow, the sun is shining on the icicles in the eves and I have a sense that things will perhaps settle down in the new year as long as I make a concerted effort to treat myself well, get more exercise, make sure I eat well; basically I need to regroup regarding everything because I am trying to accept the new reality of my life as I grow older.

    I dearly hope things settle down for you as well. Take good care.

    Boss mare, I'm joining the chorus to wish a much better 2019 for you. And for us all, for that matter, individually, and for our country as a whole.
    Take care of what you can, push for what you need, and find a way to live with the rest of it. Easy to say, not so easy to do, I am so aware. . . life is a work in progress, isn't it!

    Oh my goodness. You had to endure a lot and looks like there is more to come with MIL. Please make a goal for 2019 to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST. You certainly deserve it.
