my fave years" scale, except for E's birth of course....but now the more I think of it, 2008 was pretty darn great! (that rhymed!) Here's why...~i've been reminiscing lately, particularly about the past year which in turn led to thoughts of 2008 (yes, 2008, not 2009)...a difficult year and one in which I would not normally rate high on "
~feb 2008: E was born.
~may 2008: job fiasco, which sucked @ the time, but it turned out that I got to spend the rest of the year at home with E and that rocked.
~august 2008: ran into a gal @ the mall who was in my birthing class and who now has evolved into my best-mom-friend.
~august 2008: started taking E to Mother Goose classes with above mentioned friend. rhymes, singing, playing, stories...tons of fun!
~september 2008: started participating in bi-weekly play group, which was great fun at the time, despite the big "crash -n- burn" it turned out to be recently.
~october 2008: no obligations to get up early, be anywhere, do anything...could stay in my PJs with E all day long if I wanted to.
november 2008: pushed E around the mall in his stroller as I casually window shopped fantasizing that I had countless dollars to spend there.
~december 2008: interviewed & received GA position @ UT so I could return to finish my Masters.
So it was fun while it lasted. 2009 has sucked in comparison. here's hoping 2010 is on the upswing.
*this is your "positive-themed" post of the month. I cannot promise another "happy" post prior to year end...but it's always possible...just not likely.
