A bloggy year in review

I must admit, I am not a huge fan of year-end retrospectives. However, I am a bit of a nostalgic fool. (And apparently a bit of a confused hypocrite to boot.) I’ve done this year-end meme a couple of times, and I like the way it manages to tell the story of our year in broad strokes, so here it is: the first sentence of the first post in each month this year. 2010 in bloggy review.

January: Wow, only three weeks to go in my year of photos!

February: Wow, can you believe it? Five years ago today, I dipped my toe in the Internet Ocean and have been dog-paddling madly across the sea ever since!

March: Does it get any more Canadian than this? We go to bed on a wave of Gold medal fervour and wake up to Roll Up the Rim to Win. It’s Canada’s Best! Day! Ever!

April: In years to come, they’ll talk about 2010 as the year that Easter fell in mid-summer.

May: Holy cats, it’s been more than six weeks since I posted an update about my thousand picture project!

June: My boys are getting to an age now where despite their inherent adorableness, maybe I shouldn’t exploit them and their personal stories for the blog in the same way I once did.

July: Happy Canada Day from Lunenburg!

August: “Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death” ~Hunter Thompson

September: This whole house-selling thing? Is way too much work. Way, way too much work. I haven’t been this tired since there was a newborn in the house.

October: So I’m changing the toddler terror’s diaper the other day, and of course as soon as the diaper is open he’s got his hand down there groping his bits.

November: Today’s post was supposed to be the next in my fledgling series on accidental environmentalism, and how moving to a well and septic system and a larger plot of land has helped one family become more aware of its environmental footprint.

December: Beloved will tell you, there is no living with me right now. Not since I found out that Postcards from the Mothership was shortlisted as one of the five finalists in the Humour category of the 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards.

See? Fun, eh? Not all the highlights, but enough to give you a taste of the year that just flew by. In all, I’d call it a chaotic and stressful but ultimately happy year. And you?

Dani, so nice to see you swing by! I’m flattered that you’d go back through the archives for 2010!

Happy New Year to you and yours as well!
