She did better than I imagined:
If Reba indicated a number for an event to occur (two , for example), that meant that it would occur in either two days, two weeks or two months.
Here's what Reba said:
I will get a job - and the number 8 (see what the number means, above, in bold).
FAIL/WIN. Eight months from August would have been April of 2011. I did start a short freelance job in July of 2011 (and am now doing a year-long project for the same person). So even though she got the month wrong, I did get a job.
The Mister will get a job - number 6.
WIN. The Mister started his contract job about six weeks after my visit. It was supposed to last three months. He's still doing the job; it's due to end February 29, 2012.
The name Terry will be important to me - number 5 (I have a brother and a nephew both named Terry).
WIN, I guess. I still have a brother and nephew named Terry.
We will buy furniture for a room.
FAILURE. We did not purchase any furniture.
The Mister and I are healthy...gee, guess I had no reason to worry about not having health insurance after all.
WIN. We're still relatively healthy.
I will attend one wedding in the next year.
FAILURE. No wedding invitations came for us.
A friend will get divorced in the next year.
WIN, if you can call a divorce a win. And in the case of our friend, yes, it was a big win.
I will get a different ring on my finger in the next year. I'm thinkin', of course, the engagement ring I never got, but that isn't happening without the jobs.
WIN, sort of. When my mother's house was sold, the new homeowner found a ring that my first husband and I bought her for Christmas decades ago. At my mother's funeral, a friend of the homeowner (and a former co-worker of my mom) brought the ring to the funeral home. I had the funeral director place it on my mom's finger.
We will take a car trip next year - I'm campaigning for Raleigh, NC and the Orlando, FL areas, to see my daughters and families.
- Someone in the family is having a baby...AND IT'S A GIRL! News to arrive...number 3. Yay, more grandkids! Also, Tammy is supposed to have Irish twins...so more babies, baby!
As far as the Irish twins are concerned - Tammy and Frank have not ruled out trying for a third child in the near future (this type of thinking happens when you have already given birth to two of the most good-natured babies in the history of mankind).
THE JURY IS STILL OUT. Two years haven't gone by yet, perhaps he will know what he wants to do by this August.
