Sunday Stealing: Thank God This Year is Nearly Over

From Sunday Stealing

The New Year's Eve Meme

In 2014, I gained: more gray hair and wrinkles.

I lost: mobility.

I stopped: dreaming.

I started: getting old.

I was hugely satisfied by: my friends who rallied around me.

And frustrated by: my inability to get better.

I am so embarrassed that I: am not writing more.

Once again, I: spent too much time at the computer.

Once again, I did not: write a book.

The biggest physical difference between me last December and this December is: I am walking with a cane.

The biggest psychological difference between me last December and this December is: I am not feeling very hopeful.

I loved spending time: with my husband and friends.

Why did I spend even two minutes: thinking that certain people might change.

I should have spent more time: taking care of myself.

I regret buying: I can't think of anything.

I will never regret buying... even though with that money I could have ... Can't think of an answer to this, either.

I ate way too much.

I didn’t exercise enough.

Politics drove me crazy.

The most relaxing place I went was into the bowels of a good book. I haven't been away from home except for doctor's visits since 2012.

Why did I go to the trouble of being nice?

The best thing I did for someone else was I took care of my husband when he was injured.

The best thing I did for myself go to physical therapy.

The best thing someone did for me was to take care of me while my husband was injured.

The one thing I’d like to do again, but do it better, - I can't think of anything. I'm mostly just glad this year is nearly over.


  1. Obv. I am new to your I really do not know what to say...or know what's going on (why your in physical therapy etc). Grinning at your politics comment...keeping you in prayer.

  2. You have had a hell of a year, indeed. Wishing you a much better 2015!

  3. Keep dreaming!! I am wishing a much better 2015 for you :)

  4. I am praying for you and wishing you a much brighter 2015.

  5. Wishing you a much better year in 2015 than you had in 2014!

  6. uugghhh........ don't even get me started on the weight gain, wrinkles, gray hair, and aches and pains......
    Have a happy new year!

  7. Agreeing with you: Come on 2015! Wishing you a much better year come the 1st of January! You have some sweet friends so forget politics and politicians. It's a tug of war, really. meh!

  8. Send best wishes to you for a much better 2015!

  9. I saw this post on Facebook: What was the greatest thing you did in 2014? "I survived."
    It's been a good/bad year for me too, but life still beats the alternative. Keep on keeping on!

  10. Praying the coming new year is MUCH healthier for you! You had plenty of blessings this year, though, in the form of all those friends and family members.

    I probably gained a lot of gray hair this year, too, but thanks to my stylist we'll never know. ;)

  11. oh anita...i hope 2015 will be your year!

  12. Here's hoping 2015 is kinder to both you and your husband. After the past year, you definitely deserve a break!
