2007 – The Year in Review

in Memes

I did this meme last year, and thought it was a neat way to take a look back at the year. These are the first sentences of the first posts of each month in 2007:

  1. I’m fond of odd-numbered years – they seem to be lucky for me.
  2. Considering how socially awkward I feel when I don’t have my computer to mediate my conversations, I’m becoming addicted to these blogger meet-ups!
  3. Sorry, I still don’t have much for you today.
  4. I’m so good to you.
  5. Parents of preschoolers, consider yourself warned: Thomas the Tank Engine’s popular “Day Out With Thomas” is coming to Ottawa this summer!
  6. First of all, thank you all for your sweet words of congratulations.
  7. Four states, two provinces, six days, 1850 kms, 546 photographs… and we’re back!
  8. As I mentioned, we spent an extended summer weekend with my brother’s family at his in-laws’ cottage.
  9. We’re freshly back from our weekend getaway to Smugglers’ Notch Resort in Vermont.
  10. Tristan has been thinking a lot lately about how things will be when he grows up.
  11. Yay, it’s November!
  12. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to be done NaBloPoMo on Friday (yay! I made it!) and not have to worry about throwing together a blog post on the weekend, not because we lacked bloggable fun but because we were so darn busy I hardly had time to sit down let alone blog about it.

I love how so many of the year’s important events – finding out I was pregnant, three great trips, even a year of bloggy socializing – fall into this list, and how prescient the first line turned out!

(Feel free to play along, and leave me a note in the comment box if you do so I can come and check out yours.)

I played along. It was a neat way to reflect on the year.

I played. Clearly my life is not anywhere near as interesting as yours! Even so, it was a fun exercise to look back at those posts from 2007.

Hm. Interesting idea…

5 Karen December 29, 2007 at 12:29 pm

Just did the meme!

What a great idea! I haven’t been blogging for a whole year, so I shall try it next year. 🙂

And I remember so many of those posts.

Thanks, btw. I am honoured.

I played too! I’m going to have to remember to start each month with something more interesting or exciting … perhaps so this end of year meme tells a story! Hrm.

Hi Dani – I decided to play along, too! Mine was not as prescient as yours, but a fun way to look back on the events of the year. Thanks for sharing!
