    Re: My hard times ___ over finally.

    What is your time line?

    Are you talking about the past, referring to hard times ever more past? Or the present?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
