An April Retrospective

Keeping a blog is so useful/narcissistic because I can always just look back through old entries to see what I was doing at this point in years past. I guess you could do that with hard copy journals, too. But first you would have to find your journals. And then you'd have to find the right one. But I'd probably get sidetracked, reading about my 8th grade crush or the soccer game my junior year of high school, and never get around to what I was originally looking for.

At the end of April 2oo6, we had just moved from Cincinnati up to Cleveland. We were living with my parents for a few months, until we could move into our house at the end of June. This was a good time for me, blog-wise, because I was unemployed. I was reading lots of books and doing crossword puzzles. Those were the days!

April 2007, apparently, I had much less time on my hands. I gave a shout-out to Shakespeare on his birthday, briefly philosophized about getting stopped at red lights, and dedicated a lengthy entry to i can has cheezburger.

Predictably, the end of April 2008 was all about the baby. There were some belly pics, and yet another reason to expect that Little L would turn out to be a boy. (Ha!) I was also complaining about the fact that maternity pants don't have pockets.

This year, I think the end of April shows that I'm obsessed with running and getting back in shape. And Eleanor. From this point forward, always Eleanor!

I was interested enough by this post to find out how long ago I first discovered your blog. Sept 17 2007. Wow... just shy of 2 years ago. Time flies when you're having fun ;)

Wow. I can't believe it's been nearly 2 years! I didn't get many readers from Blogrush, but at least you and Jonathan have stuck around :)

We'll see where the next two years take us!
