I was reading my '09 predictions last night and they were pretty lame. I think I was all in love and giddy so I didn't say much of anything substantial. I still am in love, by the way. So here's how I did.
This is what I thought might happen each month in '09 and then what actually happened in '09.
January- We go to California. We talk about Mha...... Paul starts a new job. I start looking for a second or new job.
February- I finally finish laser treatments. I go to the Celine Dion concert. I start a new job.
March- I get engaged...ish... I don't go on my 4th Mexico rediscovery vacation.
April- Grandpa turns 90 and I convince the fam to have a big party! I love Grandpas, especially mine.
May- I simplify and de-junk my apartment.
June- I move. I get married.
July- I buy the new TV that I thought I'd buy a year ago.
August- Paul and I go on a sunny vacation to celebrate how well I did at staying out of the sun for a year.
September- I get baby hungry.
October- I bust out the ol' Winnie the Pooh for another year, and I try to find Tigger for Paul.
November- I get baby hungry...did I mention that?...
December- We talk about moving...
This is what actually happened...
January: I went to California with by boyfriend, Paul, and came home from California with my fiance, Paul.
February: Went dress shopping, wedding planned, had the parents meet the parents, went to Celine Dion.
March: Paul moved into my apartment and I moved in with my parents. Us each having our own apartments this close to being married didn't make sense, so we consolidated and saved some money.
April: Had am incredible, huge, fun, awesome 90th birthday party for my cute grandpa.
May: I stopped working for the most part, and had a lot of free wedding planning time. Went on a relaxing business trip to St. George with Paul. My Uncle Randy died.
June: I got married to be best friend in the whole world. Had a fabulous 2 weeks of wedding/celebrating/honeymooning/California reception/family time/awesomeness. June was a good month.
July: Almost moved. Didn't. Looked hard for a new job. Still no new TV. Really gonna shoot for 2010.
August: Got a new job. Love it.
September: Downgraded from a big awesome expensive truck, to a little not so awesome completely paid for truck.
October: Was not Winnie the pooh for halloween. I did, however pull it out and thought about it. And I also looked for a Tigger costume for Paul, at downtown disney in california. If anyone had it they should, but didn't. So we were just us for halloween.
November: I did get baby hungry, but it comes and goes rather quickly. Went hunting in Texas and killed a deer.
December: Had our first Christmas together in our cute little festive apartment. Then went to California to ring in the new year. Paul and I both got raises.
Welcome 2010, here's what I think might happen...
January: Less rent, more square footage.
February: I turn 30. I'm feeling about 100% on that one.
March: We buy a new TV!!!
April: We buy cute Wood Co stuff with our extra pay checks. I love 5 friday months when I get payed on 3 of em.
May: Paul and I start ballroom dance classes.
June: Happy One Year to us. We go on a fun little anniversary trip.
July: I hear the biological clock a little louder than usual, and we start to talk about trying to grow a human in my righteous womb. We talk about the future and about moving to California.
August: We spend a lot of times in the mountains, camping, fishing, shooting guns, boating, etc.
September: I start writing a book.
October: We move...again...
November: We start "trying" to get pregnant.
December: We have a Merry Christmas. And we win a contest and get a free trip to the Bahamas or somewhere warm and beautiful.
