I really get anxious this time of year, especially if I don't have the money I need to comfortably gift. This has been truly a very stressful, difficult year. I hope to never relive this, but the reality is just because the calendar turns to 2012 it doesn't wipe the slate clean. It might erase the past year's numbers, but there just doesn't feel like there is enough momentum to push things to the next level. I fret over something going wrong that I can't handle, and that concerns me allocating cash to buying things we don't need. Boy I'm a real cheerful cartoonist. Just a barrel of laughs. No wonder I can't get in the right frame of mind to be creative. It is all I can do to keep from just throwing in the towel or going postal on someone.
