Anyone else counting down the days to 2009? Every year I do a recap, what made the year memorable for me, or special, or utterly horrendous. The BIG things that effected me, so I can look back on it years from now and laugh, cry, or cringe. Whatever the effect, right? So here is my list of the memorable moments of 2008 in no particular order, the bad with the good.
2.)and Max. I still cry for them when I allow myself to think about it.

4.)Mom and dad finally got into their new house.
5.)Summer vacation: My first dip in the Atlantic Ocean!
6.)Summer vacation: My first trip to BLGH!
7.)Oldest's first date, and paying for senior prom. AKA: that overall shocked feeling that my baby is growing up.
8.)The publishing industry crisis.
9.)Gas prices spiking to near $4.00 a gallon during a recession - Washington can call it whatever the hell they like.

11.)Joining the RWA, and attending my first local conference.
12.)The hell that is Houston traffic.
If I can think of anything else, I'll likely come back and add to the list. Those are just the things that come immediately to mind. On a scale of 1-10, my rating for 2008 has hovered somewhere around a 2 almost all year. As you can probably guess, I'm banking on 2009 to make for a much, much better year!
