SUCK IT 2015

Kiss my ass 2015.

How I felt almost 365 full days.

How I felt almost 365 full days.

You know those years that seem to fly by, where you find yourself in disbelief that it’s time to ring in a new one? Well, 2015 wasn’t one of those for me. It felt that every 24 hours might as well be a 24 year period. Of course there were good days – and even weeks. But bad juju was most definitely in my corner at almost every turn.

Everything I touched turned to shit.

Everything I touched turned to shit.

It wasn’t any one thing but a slow build up of moments and major life losses that can’t be undone. My immediate family has been turned upside down, as I’ve stood by as a mere spectator with no ability to change the outcome.  I lost a few friends early this year for unexplained reasons (a lawsuit was even threatened…and I’m not even on any Real Housewife of Bravo program!) my Gma passed away from a quick illness in June, I suddenly lost my two year old pussy New Cat in July and the fur ball love of my life Ted fell seriously ill unexpectedly in August (and thankfully is on the mend after what a year of in state college tuition would cost – but he’s SO worth it, ya dig?).

Farewell to Gma.

Farewell to Gma the Great.

Farewell to my fave photogenic tuxedo cat, Newy.

You know, the little shit who would never ever even let me take a piss alone.

Lavoratory Lovin'

His Royal Highness, the ever dramatic Tedstar, who spent two weeks in a pet hospital ICU (mostly because he refused to eat and take a shit, therefore stalling his release back to the mini manse).

Pissed the vet didn't have a pink wrap.

In 2015 I also found myself being taken advantage of in personal ways – you know when you’re the emotional stability or constant support for someone and then they become ghosts when the favor is needed in return?

Ghost this.

Ghost this.

In my professional life, it’s been stunning to find out where I really stood with close friends and colleagues over the last six months. Two weeks ago I found myself divorcing the company I thought I would be with for the remainder of my working years.

Not a situation that bloody marys and Tylenol can't fix.

Not a situation that bloody Marys and Tylenol can’t fix.

Over the past three months, I’ve been called names…loving and thoughtful names such as “catty, scowly faced, bitchy” and my personal favorite, “a fucking whore,” all by folks I thought cared/liked/loved me.  (Truth –  I can be bitchy when a situation arises where that trait is needed.)

But you know…haters can suck it.

Or I'll cut a bitch.

Or I’ll cut a bitch.

I’ve arrived at a point (and thankfully it’s the last day of the year) where nothing could really surprise me and I am just over it. Therefore, I have been wearing my feelings on my phone sleeve.


Seems appropriate, yes?

But with a new year just hours away, I’m excited for the feeling of a fresh beginning in many areas of my life. And, while this year will go down in the books as one I never want to repeat, it’s shown me the resilience that life requires, the humor one must keep to be able to laugh at the most ridiculous of situations and thankfulness for those who truly love me for being me. Classiness and all.

Classy Lady

Love me, love my trashiness.

So to the family, friends, fellow bloggers, readers, acquaintances and co-workers who’ve been around this year – I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 2016, I’m ready for you full-bore.

Ready to raise some serious hell.

Ready to raise some serious hell.

Who’s with me?

CHEERS to the new year!

    It’s gotta be a better year, buddy. I’m hoping it’s already off to a better start and that somehow your life is going to seem better off without the haters eventually. So glad you still have Teddy!!! xoxoxo

  2. […] while the richer Iowa fans with jobs swarmed the fuck out of California, my unemployed ass  hosted a game watch at the mini manse on New Year’s […]

  3. It’s been a great blogging year! Looking forward to reading more in 2016. Happy New Year! Hope our livers can handle it!

    Hate to the haters, Wine for the Whiners, and a great big bag of dicks to be eaten by all the assholes CBXB. Here is to making 2016 YOUR bitch. Grab a shot of moonshine with a skinny pirate chaser and toast away all the bad from 2015 keeping only the good things and memories to jump aboard the 2016 crazy train!. My best wishes to you and all your TRUE allies in your assault on the new year. Keep the Jazz hands HIGH and the spirits HIGHER my friend.

    • Thank you my friend! I appreciate your comments and support – and you’re right, I’m making 2016 MY bitch. Starting with my Hawkeyes winning the Rose Bowl. Yeehaw! 🙂 Nothing but jazz hands, Skinny Pirates and moonshine tonight! Happy New Year! And thanks for always being such a good buddy.

      • JMC813 says:

        Hey you, hope you had a fabulous New Years Celebration. Couldn’t wait for your next post to chime in. While I absolutely loved the outcome of the Rose Bowl, I have to say I was hoping for a closer game. Anyway, in the name of good sportsmanship and whatnot, I wanted to congratulate your Hawkeyes on an otherwise fantastic season. Raising a shot glass to continued success for both our teams. Bottoms up friend!!!

      • Awe, thanks friend! Was thinking about you most of the game. It was a bummer that it wasn’t closer. Not sure where in the hell the Hawks left their motivation but it wasn’t at the Rose Bowl! Good win for your Cardinals!

      • JMC813 says:

        It kinda turned into the Christian McCaffery show early and often. Maybe he will actually win the Heisman next year instead of finishing second. Hard to believe he is only going to be a junior next yr. I hope your Hawks don’t have a huge graduating or NFL draft eligible players leaving. Maybe a rematch would be a thing next year.

    Sounds like something I used to write…lol. A lot of people have expiry dates and they go bad when there is something to gain or nothing to lose.

    You sound positive though and you’re moving on.

  9. John says:

    I am sorry to read about your misfortunes with work, sometimes I am practically mortified to be a human being. We are a shitty specie at times. That said, it’s a new year and I wish you all the best in it. ❤️

    • Awe, thanks John! While some humans really suck, most I encounter are pretty spectacular, such as yourself. Thanks for always being a good friend! Happy New Year!

      • John says:

        Thanks so much, you are so sweet! I have had backstab friends in the past, you must accept it and move on, we have no choice do we. Best wishes for you my friend, be safe. xo

Holla at me!
