2008 in review

All the cool kids are doing it. And for once it doesn't involve taking my life in my own hands. Like that time I tried cliff jumping and ended up belly flopping. That there was stupid, and I was trying to catch my breath, stay afloat, and pull my bikini top back down over my breasts where it belonged as they all peered over the edge to see if I was okay.

No, I'm talking about the end of the year favorite post retrospective for 2008.

January-I finally got around to writing a 100 things post. A lot has changed since then and I have just finished updating it to reflect all the changes.

February-I started recording daily moments I wanted to remember. This one may be my favorite but it was hard to choose.

March-More moments. The Boy wrote his first haiku. And he wasn't happy about it.

April-I didn't write much because someone called CPS on our family. The charge was eventually dropped but it was an awful experience nonetheless. I wouldn't recommend reading it really. But in a way it was a blessing as our lives took a totally different direction after that. Come to think of it, that wasn't a favorite at all. Read this one about my kids puking and peeing on me instead.

May-I went to Canada to visit my family and see old friends. And then my husband killed a rattlesnake near the house.

June-I started to write more about my thoughts on the global food crisis and poverty. And I posted another round of You Can Tell You Live in Southern CA When...

July-I told you all about our plans to move to Thailand and start the charis project. (We're still planning to go the end of March.)

August-The GH went to Thailand to form some more connections scout around and he took a lot of your generous donations with him to help Chala and the kids he takes care of.

September-The Boy went to work with dad.

October-I participated in Owlhaven's Love Stories For October and told the story of how the GH and I met.

November-I started keeping a gratitude journal.

December-My children thought of original and unique expressions of sibling love.

Well, that was 2008.

2009 already looks like it will have a lot of adventures to write about. Stay posted.
