2020 went off the rails for most of the world, but through a combination of privilege and dumb luck, we were able to make the most of it.
I’ve been a full-time remote worker since 2015, and my wife was able to easily start working from home in the spring.
Around the same time, we found out that we were expecting.
We scurried to get our house ready for the arrival of our newest family member.
We renovated our basement, added a bathroom, turned our old master bedroom into a nursery, replaced our HVAC system and even replaced our roof.
While I’m hopeful that 2021 will be better than 2020, we’re not out of the woods yet.
We’ll see more drama with the transition of power in the US, worldwide vaccine rollouts, Brexit, and the global response to all of the above.
(Not to mention all the unknowns lurking in the shadows.)
Still, 2020 is behind us, and there’s no way to go but forward.
