My Year in Review 2008

January 5, 2009


I’ve been a blogger for a numbr of years, but this blog is my first of its kind. It’s a catch-all of my interests, quirky thoughts, fun stuff, and a few good rants here and there. This blog will be a year old on February 29, 2009! Oh wait, there IS no February 29 this year! My blog is a leap-baby! Perhaps this accounts for its quirks.

I have enjoyed reading others’ Year in Review posts, and thought I’d do one, too! Things didn’t really get rolling until March, so that’s where I’ll start. Here are the highlights of 2008!
