I saw this meme on Nicole’s blog and thought it looked like an easy weekend post. Apparently what I’m going to attempt to do is to go back into my archives and find one post from each month of the past year and post the title and first sentence. I wonder what I will learn from this…
Ice Skating Brings Lots of Good Mommy Points: I’ve been a very good mommy this week.
Forever in Blue Jeans: Since it is my birthday month and I’m also on a yarn diet*, I have decided that the best way to treat myself is to start lots and lots of projects without a care of whether I actually ever finish any or not.
I’m Allergic to Old Navy: I am terribly sensitive to vast quantities of flip flops.
Sheep Butts and Other Good Times: Fiber festivals are really good because they have things like…
M&M’s Make Friends: I think I have discovered the secret to happy summer days with the junior agents: Start them off with some M&M pancakes!
Another Beautiful Day: I can’t believe this is Connecticut.
Triathlons, Chocolate, and Knitting…: Those are the three things that make a perfect Sunday.
Glorious Fall and Shedir: I’ve been busy working on my dyeing this morning.
The Start of Dark Victory: As we all know, the start of a new sweater project involves much more than casting on the first stitch.
Episode #57: Teen Room Makeover: We’ve been promising Agent K a room makeover for a few years now.
Rapping at my Chamber Door: Today, we fought the bleak December by making gingerbread houses.
So, what did I learn from this exercise? First, it is not quite the quicky post I had anticipated. Second, we did a heck of a lot of stuff this year! This was fun to go back through and review my year. It is nice to look at the spring and summer photos to remember flowers and leaves and anything green. We did a lot of traveling — we actually went to 4 major U.S. cities which were L.A., New York, Boston, and Washington D.C. We saw a lot of family and we got through my mom’s lymphoma (she is still doing ok, btw…). IHA graduated Law School, passed the bar, and got a new job. I also got a newpart-time job this year which made me very happy. Oh yeah, and I opened my Etsy shop too, how could I forget that? There are a lot of posts where I mention how much the agents are driving me nuts! That will probably not change, I’m sure, but I will try. I also started out last year with about 17 to 18 posts per month and ended with 6 to 7. That is not a good trend and one that I intend to reverse!
Hope you enjoyed this little Spincerely retrospective! Have a great weekend…
