Year End Letters

Dear 2008,

I guess it’s finally time for us to say our goodbye’s. I wish I could say that I was sorry to see you go, but in all honesty 2008, you were a rough year. I had high hopes for you, and while we did have a few really good times, as a whole you really let me down.

Thank you though for bringing us Andy and Luzma’s wedding. That was definitely a highlight. It’s not every wedding you get to have your picture taken with Elvis and eat as many cupcakes as you want. Las Vegas was great so we’ll always have that 2008!

Thanks also for the girls get away in Cabo. It was super nice of you to have my flight miles fall in your year so I could tag along with the gals to Chrissy’s time share.

2008, you also gave me Gretta the Jetta, so when ever I take her in for service I will always think of you because they will always ask me what year she is. In that respect you will live on in my life for years to come.

Other than all that though, I’m ready to see you go. Maybe you can take your sucky economy and stupid gas prices to some other place? Maybe you can give us back some jobs and real estate value while you’re at it. Let’s face it 2008, you failed to provide a good year for loads of people and I don’t think I’m alone when I say, good riddance!

Signed,
A former even numbered year lover

Dear 2009,

Welcome! It’s so nice to have you here!

I’d like to start things off right with you and make sure we’re all on the same page. I don’t really expect much from you; truly, I would love it if you were just a normal, mellow year. I think we can all use a little less scandal and madness this year.

I sent a letter to 2008 asking it to return some things it took, hoping it would make your job easier. I don’t know if it will respond. Between you and me, 2008 was kind of a bitch so I doubt it will be much help to you.

2009, I think we’re all looking forward to what you will bring us. I hope you have something totally awesome planned. I would be forever grateful if you could turn some things around. I think you’ll have some help from high up places. Mr. Obama has some plans for you, as do millions of people in the world. Together I think you can all make a difference. The deck is in your hands 2009. I have faith in you!

Many blessings, well wishes, prayers, crossed fingers, lit candles, and happy hopes to you!

Signed,
Willing to give odd number years a try!

He he... you're funny. And I like the new blog look. I agree, 2009 can't get worse, right?!
