On to 2021. Looking ahead, there is still a lot of room for improvement and also a lot of room for optimism. Time to dream a little.
For 2021, I hope to find a schedule to get that vaccine and maybe finally shed those ten pounds that slipped in while I was distracted. I hope to tackle and eventually overcome some long-held doubts and chores! (My big prediction for 2021 is that I will finally upgrade and fix my vintage stereo.) And finally, I hope I can welcome my family members back into my home and my life in a very real way.
And you? Let us know your hopes – and your predictions – for 2021 in the comments! (Don’t forget to keep it civilized!)
