Rate it between 1 (Horrible) and 10 (Fantastic)
So that puts 5 as "average"
No explanation needed, just a number.

    In Colorado with the kids and grandkids, it simply doesn’t get any better than that so an 11 for sure.

    Probably an 8  I'm in rehab, basically alone,  but friends came by and I have less worries, and my daughter is here and I can walk without much pain.  Everything else is just great, my left leg is better,  and my grandkids are coming down Saturday.

    Wrestling with a 7 foot shark on a charter the day before Christmas day   trying to release it alive, getting a 3" laceration to my hand and the top inch of my left forefinger almost severed resulted in spending time in A&E on Christmas eve and again on Christmas day getting it re-stitched didnt help my rating.........

    I give it a 2 due to my physical state.........an 8 for the time with family and friends, a 10 cos I got a 6 day hunt incl helicopter fly in as a gift..........0 cos I ran out of Glennfiddich ( poor planning)

    Average rating is a 5, but i would call it an 8........


    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    I CAN  relate. Different reasons,  but I can't say that I will be sad to put 2019 behind us, and pray for a better 2020

    Christmas came? oops I missed it again :'(
  • jaywaptijaywapti Senior Member Posts: 4,960 Senior Member
    10 because,
    Wife finished radiation and chemo
    11 good healthy pups, 2 already sold

    0 because,
    Enormous medical bills
    My L-4 & 5 went out so for the last 4 weeks I need a walker to get around

    10 again because,
    Were still alive, have each other, and somehow we will get thru this

    Solid 9 here. Quiet, low key, small and useful gifts, and I got to see most of the people I care to see. I'll definitely take it!

    5. 

    Lost my father, mother and uncle in the past couple of years. Just a different feeling this year. Both kids are grown doing some of their own things so that's taking some getting used to.

  • rberglofrberglof Senior Member Posts: 2,660 Senior Member
    I would put it at a 8, wife wasn't feeling good, the prime rib I fixed came out excellent so dinner was a 10. Made a pumpkin cheese cake that turned out good also.
