predictions and the mayfly project

so i know a long time ago, back in the archives, i wrote down some of the predictions for this year, written back in january at my cousins house in 'cuse.... and it's nearing the end of the year, and i think it's time to revisit a bit...

~ i will end my nanny-ing career and find the perfect job, working with kids, and giving them the best opportunities i can. i ddi end the nanny nonsense, and thought i'd found a perfect job. ....the archives on that mess are in august. i am working with kids and giving them the best i can. so i suppose, that although it isn't a perfect situation, this has happened. and i am home. ...

~ b. will love GA, and everything will work out for the best.
b did not love GA. and everything has definitely worked out for the best. he is home too, and thank God for him everyday. always b. i love you.

~ woody will begin a new career as a human psychic (vs a pet psychic because he is a cat after all) and earn millions, allowing mike to retire and finally relax. we all wish mike would relax. but woodster seems to be hanging around continuing to mooch off my beloved uncle rather than pull his own weight, albeit 10 lbs., he still ain't pullin'.

~ spot who has taught many to find their groove, will become a best selling author, allowing debi to retire (although debi will have to help spot somewhat as spot/scott doesn't have fingers to type with.....) spot also seems to be in mooch mode, so it appears on both these counts, we were wrong.

~ mlle's.j and s will no longer go balistic over petty things such as picking up a shoe. (ok, this already didn't happen, so i was wrong) obviously, when small girls are involved in any predictions, they aren't coming true.

~ s.a.f. will have a fabulous time in africa and come home safe and sound. he did both.

~ my kids, all of them and i think the number is up in the 2 or 3 hundreds now, will do well in school, remember what they've been taught (michael), and do the best they can to be jesus to others. as though i actually need to remind them of this??? i think that for the most part, my kids are doing their best for others. how much inifluence i have had upon this, i don't know. but regardless, they are.

~ my beloved knicks will continue to do poorly, but i will still love them. even if i can't watch because it saddens me so... i don't think i need to say anything at all.

~ my yanks will make a comeback. probably not to world series status, but will recover dramatically after the devistation felt by all NY'ers.... what is with them??? well, they came close. and i was proud. good job boys.

~ the pope will continue to make a difference in the world. but the catholic church at large will get a hold on the child abuse scandal and send boston's bish AWAY. bad bad man. i believe pope john paul is continuing his good work. thank heavens for him.

~ pat will return. and we'll throw a huge party to celebrate. because we miss him. a lot. i've yet to see patrick. perhaps this new years' he will return to us. we still miss him. a lot.

~ mom and step dad will spend a majority of the summer traveling, and mom will decide this is her last year teaching. they did travel lots, maybe too much. mom is still teaching. but this may be her last year for other reasons...

~ dad and t. will finish all the major home improvements they have been working on for so long and be able to write their own books on the practice. they've done a lot, but no publishers yet.

~ syd and clark will have a daughter and name her after me. :) they did have a daughter. her name is addie though :) she is the cutest thing.

~ the snipers will be convicted. no contest. trial is still pending...

~ osama will be found. alive so we can put him where he belongs. not that i'm angry or filled with any hate. i just think he's a bad bad man too. well, we found saddam, that's pretty good.

~ the medical society will find a cure for ovarian/uteran cancer. (i can hope can't i?) don't i still wish.... add breast cancer too...

~ my grandparents will celebrate 60 fabulous years in december. and we (the kiddies) will throw them one huge bad ass party. no bad ass party. some people need to be more careful on the ice. but 60 years on sat. whoop whoop!

~ j.k. rowling will finally grace the literary world with harry potter #5 and we'll see harry doesn't die. because he can't. what kind of hero would that be? honestly. she did. he didn't. awesome book.

~ some of us, and we know who we are.... will walk away from things that aren't working in our lives BECAUSE they aren't working and will realize how much better we are without those things/PEOPLE/behaviors/attitudes/JOBS/etc. the certain people, for the most part did this. except me...

~ a certain someone will find some passions in their life and realize i'm not stressed all the time. just a little more passionate that a doormat. i think he has.

~ i will get in touch with the people i plan to get in touch with because i've lost touch as i am a bad friend at times... no, they just got married/went to work on PhD's/moved farther away/whatever.... i can't seem to find them and stay in touch... must work on that one. still working on it.

~we won't go to war with korea, we'll let them take care of their own business and will start taking care of our own... education, education, education, care, and general well being of our children. since we can't seem to get it through our heads how inconsistant and hypocritical we really are. as a whole. not everyone... someday maybe bush will learn the errors of his ways. until then...

~ i forgot to add this one... my pookie will graduate in may with her MSW, and we will have one incredible party to celebrate, and she will be able to relax. :) as well, my friend jon will finally graduate too. i hope. congrats to both!

so i think i did all right. some things i keep thinking i'll get better at, and i try, but then i keep gettinig caught up in too much. i don't know. so i suppose i'll start working on next years soon... in the meantime... the may fly prject
20 words. one year. my life....
here goes...
