2008 in review

Yes, everyone is doing “2008-in-review” posts… I have no idea why I feel compelled to do it too, seeing as how I’m a little BUSY these days with MUCH more important things…

So I’ll keep it brief; Jamieson is asleep in his sling now, and much as I love having his warm little body pressed up against mine, I know I’m on borrowed time here.


January began with a wonderful little secret. I was pregnant! Our families and close friends knew, but I hadn’t told anyone at my office yet, which was good because near the end of the month, I miscarried. I was 12 weeks along, which made it rather physically traumatic, requiring a night spent in the emergency room and then surgery a few days later. Emotionally, it was very difficult for us.


We early-voted in the Democratic primaries…. Um…. not much else…


I don’t think we did anything in March.


Screw this. My life is boring and no one wants to read about it a second time. Anyway, it’s almost time for me to feed Jamie. He’s rustling about in the sling.

    You are too funny. You should just say, 2008 year in review (see previous posts). 😉

    BTW, I know your mom left so if you ever need some Auntie Rachel help or babysitting services, please do not hesitate to call. I bring food!

    Boring lives are so 2008! 2009 seems promising. Parenthood certainly is interesting and offers many moments of humor. And pain. I’m looking forward to that in the post by post format! I’m going to try to document the last 5 months of Anna’s childhood by starting to blog again. She’s being really wiggly in the “please stay connected to your childhood sling” that I am trying to maintain.

    I’m sorry about your miscarriage 🙁 I didn’t read your blog in a regular manner till this summer because of my life being in such a turmoil. I’m glad your year ended well with Jamie.

    I should blog again, or at least keep a diary. I guess mine is more in my pictures.

    Take care 🙂
