Hello 2015. Hello New goals!

I guess my title says it all. I have been completely immersed in Tsu for some reason and also I have had an amazing number of health and other issues which kept me down. But I wanted to come here and wish you all a very Happy New Year!

2014 was so bad for me personally. I had severe health issues and I nearly lost my husband is a tragic car accident that killed one woman in the other car. My poor husband was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He will carry the scars and pain forever. Just last week, I suddenly lost my beloved cat Princess. She seemed fine and then she was having breathing problems. She died on the way to vet's. Although she was 15, she was active , not sick, and seemed fine a day before that. I was so crushed. Still am. My first Christmas in 15 years without my Princess.

And of course, the elephant in the room. The other site stealing our earnings and deciding tonight was a great time to drop that bomb. I don't understand those people. I don't know how they can live with themselves. They're so incredibly sneaky and dishonest.

But this is about 2015 and new goals. And I have some. I am going to spend time where I enjoy being regardless of money. I make a good living writing for magazines so this is just fun for me. Of course, extra money is never a BAD thing but I don't count on it to live thankfully. So now, it's about where I am happiest. It's also about freeing myself up to do things offline. I can't sit here for 18 hours a day staring at a screen anymore.

I plan to be here more often. I am also at a couple of other sites. I don't believe I will go back to the site that has stolen from me. I can't. It's down to a matter of allowing people to treat me like dirt or moving on.

I wish for you all, a very happy new year. And I will see you all around more in 2015!

Happy New Year to you, Patty. : ) I am sorry for the loss of Princess. I'm sure her absence is greatly missed. I didn't realize your husband had been in an auto accident. I'm glad he got through that, but can imagine the lifelong emotional strain.

Here's to a happier, healthier and safer year ahead for you and yours!

Thanks. Yes, he was in a very violent and severe car crash in July. It was so awful. He only recently was able to go back to work and he hurts all the time. But he easily could have died from such an impact so he was truly blessed and lucky. I hope you have a great new year. :)

I'm sorry to hear about all the pain of 2014. I do hope 2015 is better for you.

Thanks. I just want a peaceful year with nothing TOO awful. That would be great. Happy new Year to you.

I'm so sorry for your loss and for the scary times that you have had this year. Of course 2015 will be much better for you! You just hang out here with the cool people, and we will take care of you. :)

Sometimes we have to make the tough decisions. Glad you will stay with us here, and I hope you also keep spending time a tsu when you can.

Well, 2015 started out a little shaky but I am not going to let myself stress what is next. I can't control it so all I can do is hope for the best!

It feels so weird not to go there and check on my connections and do all I have done but it is also freeing. I was spending too much time there for too little. It isn't money but the lack of respect and dishonesty is just so upsetting. I am at Tsu but not as much.

I am so glad that your husband is doing better, and so very sorry to hear about Princess. I would be devastated if anything happened to my cats -- just three of them!
