2020 has been....(insert choice word here)

My 2020 got a little better a couple of months ago. My wife and I found out we'll be parents in June. This will be our first child. Doctors visits have checked out so far and we're super excited.

Note to future parents and partners of those who are pregnant: Eggos will save your life.

What's some of your good news?

Congrats!!

My good news is still in the hopeful stage.
My art career is taking off. Today we have our last video conference with a group in Colorado that may hire us for a big build. We’re one of three finalists for the contract. If we get it I may have the ability to step away from nursing. The money I can make in three months on this project is greater than my yearly nursing wage. We also have a build that we’re currently working on that is a commissioned piece. It’s a temporary placement in a city park, then it’s ours again. We’re currently looking to sell the piece once it’s back in our possession. If we sell it I’ll earn twice my nursing wage on that sale alone.
At some point I have to take the leap of faith and go all in. I’m really hoping 2021 offers this opportunity. Maybe dreams can come true.

You know there’s other ways of riding out a lockdown you two. Geez. Now in just 13 short years until you both have quaran-teens.

Congrats to you, and portland.

My good news comes from bad news. My cousin, 26 weeks pregnant with her 3rd child, had her dam break about 10 days ago. (water broke). She was hospitalized and told she would remain so until the baby was born, and that the longer, the better.

Well, she delivered last night. An almost 3 lb baby. Doctors have said they are pleased with how he's doing. At this point.

Congrats and best wishes on the child Rocket. Truly a special time.

My good news, under normal circumstances, wouldn't really qualify as news at all... but everything is OK.

My job has gone uninterrupted and is stable, my wife's job was temporarily interrupted by has resumed and is stable.

Both my kids have jobs that are stable for them. My daughter is doing great in her senior year of HS from home.

Everybody is healthy and relatively happy... Frustrated at times, wanting to bust out and do more stuff, sure... but we are dealing with it. In some ways it has brought us all closer..

So my good news, is that I don't really have any bad news. Which in 2020, is a good thing.

Just got news on my good news... unfortunately it’s bad news. We didn’t get the contract. They told us we were a “very close second”. Sadly second place doesn’t pay the bills or get me out of nursing. No looking back. We’ve applied for a few more gigs over the past few weeks. Here’s hoping one or two comes through over the next couple of months.

you going to name the baby PandemRocketjrgotbornthroughtit ? smile

So very happy to hear your good news and sharing your good news is sometimes all we need to cheer up a day.

I did have some good news. My Youngest Daughter Keeley who was in the head on car collision a few years back was blessed with being able to buy a house. She came over yesterday with her Partner Katie and shared the very good news with me.

No it’s obvious, by what we know of Perfect, the baby will be named, if a boy, Donald Eric Ivanka (Perfect’s last name). If a girl, Ivanka Erica Melania (Perfect’s last name).

Can't believe I forgot this: The little fellows name is......Baker. (cousin is a big Browns fan)
