Default Who Else Wants 2005 to end QUICK?

I'm not normally a superstitious guy, but near the beginning of 2005 I had a bit of a feeling of dread about the coming year. And, while there's been some good things that have happened, overall it's been a very tough year in many ways, personally and with world events. Now I find I'm just counting the days until it ends, and I can welcome a new year with hopes and dreams of a better year ahead!

Am I alone in wanting this year to END?

While I always have wonderful hopes for the future and look forward to what is come I have stopped wishing for time to pass so quickly. I have realized that once it's gone you never get it back and even in the bad times you find you come through them either gaining strength, knowledge or love.

At the end of our days we will wish we had all those days we wished away.

Take care,
Mike (Wishing everyone a great here and now and wonderful 2006)

Mike .. nice philosophy.. BUT I want them all tacked on to the end for a redo, like accumulating vacation days.

I don't want to rush things, but I wish it was coming up on New Years 07 instead of Newy Years 06, because I want to meet my CruiseMates friends on the CRUISE OF THE CENTURY!!

Mike, very eloquent indeed! Right now I am truly living in the moment, and not in a hurry to fast forward into the next. However they say, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life" You don't need a magical date on a calendar to start fresh. Each day has its own new possibilities. Some turn out better than others, but you get to try again tomorrow.

At my age, I don't want to fast forward. Time goes by fast enough. I'd like to echo Beenie Weenie's thoughts.

I have a friend whose sister is into astrology and she was telling us that there was some horrible planet retrograde going on that is ending right about now....hoping she's right because 2005 will not go down as one of my favorite years. We just did the first round of holidays without my father in law last year and now we're doing the first ones without my dad......at least there's lots of good memories.

Well, 2005 has been difficult for us, too. But it's ending up "blooming," for want of a bettter way to put it. Last Christmas, I cried my heart out because of Keith's health problems. This year, you'd hardly know anything was wrong with him. Oh, and Monday, he gets his driver's license back What a difference one year has made for us!
