Review 2007!

I got this over at Life On Flamingo Row, and thought it looked like fun.

Here's the idea:  review the past year in your journal by taking the first line from the first post of each month in your journal and putting them in one entry. 

Well, rather than do the literal first line, I did the first sentence.  Rather interesting:

January:  I promise not to keep posting things from Youtube.com.

February:  Having stepped over the threshold into that bigger-than-huge world of non-AOL blogs, I'm finding some pure gold.

March:  I've had a cold for weeks, it seems.

April:  This is one of those entries I'm doing chiefly for our son; the rest of you are welcome, but you may not have a clue what I'm talking about.

May:  My mood is sad because from 3 to 5 PM today I have no way to get to Pizza Hut to pick up my free slice of pizza.

June:  I spent last night at the cabin.

July:  I braided Blue's mane today.

August:  So, life is back to normal with Monica and Natalie here.

September:  Cliff and I went to his family reunion (on his mom's side) today.

October:  The highlight of our motorcycle trip Saturday was the historic Katy Depot  in Sedalia.

November:  Sadie doesn't get to go many places with us, but when we visit Cliff's brother, Phil, I like to take her along, because their house is so isolated from anyone else that I can turn her loose without fearing she'll run away.

December:  So, Cliff's cousin suggested today that if I wanted the picture of a Butter-nut coffee can, I just take a shot of the picture on the monitor with my digital camera.

Boy, I sure do some long sentences sometimes, don't I?

You may do long sentences (or not) but they always start an interesting tale!

Seems as if you had a good year. None of these sentences talk of bad things happening.

I liked the Pizza Hut comment from May - that just looks hilarious all by itself. (many of us feel sad when we can't get to Pizza Hut). Can you believe this year is over already? I remember being a kid and figuring out how old I'd be in the year 2000 - I was 39 that year. And we never figured anything past that because, well, we'd be so old we'd be dead or something ( I was 9, give me a break!). LOL - Happy New Year Donna!

    What a special treat it has been to travel to your farm this past year.  I learned lots of things, too!  I haven't yet made my RESOLUTIONS ....
    MAY 2008 BE A GREAT YEAR FOR YOU & YOUR HOUSEHOLD!

This is really interesting!  I will have to check this out in my own journal.  Interesting to see what I come up with.

I loved this!  I could actually remember the gist of several of those entries just from reading that first sentence.  I may have to do this one.
