2019 into 2020

December 31st, 2019 at 09:49 pm

Sitting here reflecting a little.

Twenty years ago there was such fear because of the Y2K. Looking back on it, we were told to be fearful since the changing of the year could damage computers, cause power outages, etc. Glad none of that came about.

2019 was a good year overall. Some ups and downs, but overall, very blessed.

Glad to see the market closed up today, the last day of 2019. I'm hoping our investments did well this month. Last year this time we lost money the last few months of 2019.

It's been great that DH's cataract surgeries were both a success. Fortunately neither of us had any big problems health wise.

I think I've spent more money this year than last, but not because I was being crazy and spendy. Certain things needed to be fixed or replaced. But, it is wonderful that we had the money to do so.

We spent some time going through some things and we made our last donation to the thrift shop we donate to. I had received some things that were brand new, but I knew I would use them. Perhaps someone else can get some good out of them. I should get rid of more stuff, but sometimes it is difficult to let go. I need to work on that.

We plan to meet a friend and eat out tonight and be home early. We hope 2020 is a happy year for everyone and a prosperous one as well.

    Happy New Year! My neighbor was just mentioning Y2K to me a bit ago, hard to believe that was 20 years ago! My youngest daughter wasn't even born.

    I remember the whole Y2K hubbub. Thankfully, the world didn't implode, though there were some interesting computer glitches, like things being dated 01/01/19100, but it was all minor stuff.

    A book I just finished reading, "The Only Plane in the Sky" is about 9/11 (non-fiction) I highly recommend it ... but the reason I mention it now - one of the military/intelligence people interviewed for the book mentions that there was a terroristic level threat which was planned for NY's 2000. Obviously it was thwarted.
