===========================================
I continue to make a little here and a little there. I am looking forward to 2012. This year even the last 30 months have been a real pain. Now the my daughter is basically AWOL from my life and my parents are no longer living - many pressures are off my back and out of my pocket. It looked like I was going to have to support my mother with a lot of money. It has turned out not to be that much and I am in the process of closing her accounts. For a long time I had her hanging over my head but that is gone.
-
My job is safe right now and my own $ is in good shape. I hope I can finally allow myself to take the correct risks to make good money in the markets. I have done better this last year in my retirement accounts. I hope to do that in my trading accounts. It will be about it.
-
I have used the resources at TradeTheMarkets.com a lot more. I am part of Rob Hoffman's trading room. His trading method makes sense to me. I need to work it into my way of looking at the markets.
-
I am excited about the futures having a lot of weight off of my shoulders. It may sound cold but my parents were very unhappy people. Both of them had shitty situations that I and no one else could fix. My mother spent a lot of time in fear. They are in better places now and as a son I did did what I could.
-
I need to now worry about myself and enjoy the rest of my life.

============================
This has been one f-ed up a couple of weeks. My mother who was sick for a long time died a week ago on Friday. I did not think she was going to make it to the New Year but it was a shock anyway. I am not real heart broken about it because her quality of life really sucked and she had no idea most of the time where she has and was on tons of pain meds. She is in a much better place now than living the hell she was.
-
Both that event was my big screw up in the markets that gained me nearly $3200. Sometimes it is better to be lucky than to be good.
-
With both parents now gone and my daughter totally indepe4ndent, I hope I can take time for myself. It has been 30 months of a lot of dealing with other peoples problems. Now I hope it is my time and a lot less stressful.
-
It will be weird now not living with a phone next to my bed wondering what the next crisis will bring. I tried to be a good son and father but it took a lot out of me.
-
Now is the time to worry about trading.
