Since I did a New Year’s post last year, I figured I’d do another one this year.
This year seemed to have flown by really fast compared to previous years. I always end up thinking that the months go by pretty fast, and then I think back and am like “Wow, August was a long time ago.” It just sort of sneaks up on me. Recently, I’ve been finding myself marvelling at how fast time flies. I remember when I was a kid, everything was slow. It only started seeming to speed up when I was in college. And then after college? Whew!! Forget about it!
This year, 2008, marked Clint & my 8-year anniversary of being married. When it hit me that we’ve been married as long as we were together before we got married on our 8-year anniversary, I was amazed. It’s crazy how fast that time has flown!
Anyway, I reviewed my list from last year , and wow, there was a lot going on last year.
Without further ado, here is this year in a nutshell:
X-Day (instead of Cambridge, MD)
Assateague/Bethany was different this year because of the scheduling snafu. We did Saturday through Tuesday, then headed up to Bethany. Next year will be August 7-9. Evite to follow.
Got another kitten, Lemonjello, to be friends with Oranjello. They are best buddies. (Lemonjello was free, as kittens should be).
Camping trips – We went once in May and took Oranjello. I was determined to go again before it got too cold – we ended up with 6 of us in the rain in September. It wasn’t *too* terrible, but definitely not ideal. Then we went to Evan’s cabin in December. That was nice and I’d like to do that again.
As usual, there were a lot of parties and hanging out with friends. Yay!
Still a lot of concerts – Sisters of Mercy, They Might Be Giants, Gene Ween Band and Ween, Dethklok, Sabbat, NoFX, Stella, GWAR, Freezepop, Marilyn Manson, and the infamous Danzig playing Misfits, Judy Tenuta, Type O Negative (which we practically missed), Jeanene Garafalo, Andrew Dice Clay, Ozzy Osbourne/Rob Zombie, Michael Ian Black, etc. The comprehensive list is at http://www.acm.vt.edu/~clint/media/concerts.htm.
Anyway, I have no complaints about the year 2008. Overall it was a good year for me. Here’s looking forward to 2009.
