It seems that everybody is doing a year in review of their best stuff for 2012 so I thought I would do the same. Not that I think for one minute you’re actually going to click on any of the links, but at least you can look at the pictures, and will know what went on, right?
I’m hooking up with Robin from Farewell Stranger, who is offering a blog evaluation report and blog strategy from Little Love Media as a gift to one of the participants. (There’s a second link-up down below. Read on).
So here goes:
In January, I wrote « Just a Vestige » as I tried to cope with the remaining feelings and physical remnants of my December 26 miscarriage.
In February . . . I feel like Maurice Sendak’s Chicken Soup with Rice – “In February it’s so nice, while slipping on the sliding ice, to sip hot chicken soup with rice. Sipping once, Sipping twice, sipping chicken soup with rice.”
Anyway … in February I wrote “Oh Pooh!” (oh poux?) as I described the very belated D&C and came home to all three children with heads full of lice. (I don’t think the two are related).
In March I wrote “A Sense of Security,” the third part in the series on Basic Necessities that reminisced about my time in Africa.
In April, I went to Provence!
In May, I posted lovely Senior High pictures in my post called “Senior (Citizen) Hottie” har har
In June, I indulged in some French political gossip.
In July we made our annual trek to Bretagne with the clan of in-laws.
We also went to Lacanau-Océan, more commonly known as Bordeaux. We are so not going to be able to afford to travel this year since the entire family is flying to the States.
In September we went to Brussels. Oh yes we did! We were off again!
In October I talked about my failed psychiatrist appointments, where he kept talking on the phone during my session. Ahem.
In November we got a scrap of pedigree fur named Hunter. He’s downstairs right now forcing the rubber tire into submission.
In December I found beauty in the light of winter, even as I faced the 19th anniversary of my brother’s suicide and the 1st anniversary of my miscarriage. My brother died on January 3d, but I remember it today, January 4th because I was in Asia and I got the call the next morning.
Well, I’m being just a little tongue-in-cheek, but there was a lot of fun in all the places we visited, wasn’t there? It was really good for me to remember that.
In keeping with all the folks linking up to Nicole’s blog “Sisters from Another Mister“ with their one word for the year, I think I’m going to choose the word “fun.” Just that. I was going to choose “discipline,” which I sorely need, but that’s not very fun, now is it?
If you have a blog and link up with Nicole, you have a chance of winning a necklace with the word you picked.
So I’m choosing FUN. Hope your 2013 is filled with lots of fun too.
