For the past couple of years I have been making personalized calendars with predictions of what each month would bring…
HOW COULD ANYONE HAVE PREDICTED 2020????
Well, not us! Here is what we thought our 2020 was going to be like, compared to, of course, the actual surreal year it turned out to be.
“Find a House”
Not only did we find, get our offer accepted and go through the process of A DUD HOUSE. But we found our perfect home the very last weekend of January.
“Close on a House”
We closed end of February
“Move into our house”
I don’t know how Daniel predicted this timeline so perfectly, but we moved on his birthday weekend… the weekend the stay-at-home mandate was announced
“Be offered a full time position”
Due to elective surgeries shutting down, my husband hours were cut working at the hospital. Things normalized and we were offered a full time position six months later.
“Find out someone is pregnant”
We did find out about our new cousin in August though 🙂
“See success with Mom’s Beatle book”
Not sure how to define “success” but I was able to begin editing the second draft this year
“Share a vacation with Grandma”
After everything that was going on I was not planning to enroll Jack in preschool… but he could NOT stop talking about it every single day! In October we made the decision and enrolled him. He loves it and it has not been an issue with COVID (so far)
“Talk Daddy into Disneyland again”
Disneyland wasn’t even open!
“Have an epic family costume”
I don’t know about “epic” haha, but we did have a family costume. Jurassic Park theme.
“Get a new president”
Wasn’t sure whether or not that would happen!
“Have decided to grow our family”
With the risks and complications of COVID, we decided to wait.
Last year, I got it about half right. 50/50 chance… I would say this year it was still pretty close! Most of the predictions DID come true, but not on the actual month we though (i.e. preschool, Dan’s job).
After everything that happened this year, I think 50% is pretty impressive!
