hello, 2009.

Wow, okay then! 2008 is no more! Instead of doing my usual ‘year in review’ post where I go through each month of my archives and highlight events or funny posts or whatever, I thought I’d do something different. Because frankly, that way takes FOREVER and tonight all I want to do is go downstairs and watch a movie all by myself. It’s just that kind of night, you know? So instead, I’m going to take an idea from my bloggie-friend Laura and pull the beginning sentence from the first post of each month of 2008. Because the New Year isn’t so much about endings, but beginnings. Or something.

January: Hello, 2008. So far, you’ve been just… meh. ah yes, I remember this well. We were in the midst of Sleep Training Hell with Maggie. Seems like we’re always in the midst of that.

February: People have asked me before why I blog. I don’t always have an answer, but mostly it’s just a habit now. I’ve been blogging for nearly 10 years. TEN YEARS, people. It’s a part of me. And I love you all.

March: I remembered! HA! No small feat when you’re a Mom. In this case, I remembered to participate in A Day In The Life.

April: If you haven’t seen it already, please read Emily’s post about her close friends and their 16-month-old daughter. Recent updates on Baby Emily’s health can be found here.

May: This weekend was ‘Project Weekend’. Heh, Dan would say that for me, EVERY weekend is ‘Project Weekend’. I get a little carried away at times.

June: Yesterday was one of those days where you thought ‘Hey, what a relaxing, empty day we have ahead of us!‘ but then, it got filled up with busy-ness and stuff and ended up not being so lazy as you thought. If I had a nickel for every time…

July: If you haven’t experienced it for yourself yet, let me tell you: Parenting is an adventure. Wise words.

August: This past weekend we went to visit some friends in Ohio. Wow that’s… probably one of the most boring first lines of a blog post EVER. I couldn’t have jazzed it up a bit?

September: This weekend was supposed to be fun and relaxing. Let me guess: SOMETHING HAPPENED AND IT WASN’T SO MUCH RELAXING ANYMORE. (ew, just read the entry and that was when Dan puked in my car and then it smelled like the RibFest. GROSS.)

October: Just a quick update before I crawl upstairs and crash in bed. SNORE.

November: So today is the start of NaBloPoMo. Three years in a row. Go me!

December: So NaBloPoMo is officially over. heh…I’m like a REALLY boring NaBloPoMo newscaster.

Doing this made me think of a good resolution for 2009: THINK UP BETTER OPENING LINES FOR MY BLOG POSTS.

    I love the facial expression. Oddly enough, I think I make the same one when I think of foods I dislike. haha
