Blog Series: 2008 – A Year in Review

31 December 2008

December 31st – a time for cliches. “I can’t believe this year is over! The time has just flown by, hasn’t it?” “What a year, eh? In like a lion (literally – stay tuned) and out like a lamb (not quite so literally).” “Here’s hoping 2009 is better.” Etc., etc…. That’s what we’re supposed to say at the end of the year, right?

What you’re not supposed to say is you don’t want the year to end, but that’s what I’m saying. For all its ups and downs, 2008 was a fabulous year and one that I just do not want to end. Those years do come around every so often. Yes, yes, I know that time must march forward and all that, blabbity-blah, but sometimes you just want it to stop marching, quarter up in someone’s house like a Revolutionary War soldier, and give us a real reason for the Second Amendment. I’ve had a few of those don’t-want-it-to-end years before 2008, most notably my first year of marriage, when Mike and I were totally broke living in a 250-square-foot studio apartment in Cambridge, Mass, sleeping on a futon. From the outside, it looked like it sucked, but those were some good times. Good times.

However, 2008 does come to an end, and I’m not really sure how to sum it up. Too much happened. It was a Year of Crazy. I started to write it all down – long-hand, of course – it’s the only way I can get the memories flowing some time, and by page 11 Mike suggested I split it up. So that’s what I’m going to do. Every day for the next week, I will share with you some of the highlights of each month, along with pictures and videos I haven’t previously shared. So, starting tomorrow, come back for more – it will give you something to do on your days off or, for the unlucky ones, that odd one day of work sandwiched between the New Year and the weekend where you’re not going to get anything productive done anyway.

See you tomorrow.
