Posts about Ireland are coming! We had a wonderful time, enjoyed every minute of it (except the night I spent throwing up, but we'll talk about that later), and were so sorry to leave yesterday. We got home around 11pm, and we're both at work today. I have lots of pictures and stories to come. But like I said, I have been home not much more than 12 hours and most of that time has been spent either sleeping or working.

While you're waiting, let's spend a little time remembering 2008. I stole this idea from Maresi, who stole it from someone else. The following is the first line of the first post from each month of 2008 (with links back to those posts - just click on the date).

January 3, 2008: "When I was in college, and G was a senior in high school, we decided to try snowboarding."

February 5, 2008: "If you live in one of the 24 states holding a primary today, GO VOTE!"

March 6, 2008: "G would have been 24 today." (This is, I suppose, not technically the first line of this post -- but it is the first line authored by me, after a quote above it.)

April 1, 2008: "Remember how I am terrible about sending birthday cards and emails on time?"

May 2, 2008: "Since I apparently have nothing to say lately, today I will point you to some links that may interest or entertain you."

June 4, 2008: "I just sent the following to the Dunkin' Donuts online customer service:"

July 1, 2008: "M: Ow, don't poke my finger, I have no nails."

August 2, 2008: "Soon, I will have my very own website!"

September 10, 2008: "I am in!"

October 3, 2008: "Heather over at Dooce posted the following question on her website yesterday:"

November 1, 2008: "Hi!"

December 1, 2008: "My wind ensemble concert is tomorrow!"

And while we're at it, I'd just like to add a link to my favorite post of 2008: November 11, 2008 - Veterans Day

Happy New Year!
