2008 in Review: First Sentence Meme

I saw this over at Small World today & thought it looked like a lot of fun - so here I am. The year 2009 will mark the start of my fourth year of blogging. Wow - that's amazing to me.

How to Play.
1) Look back to your archives for 2008.
2) Collect the first sentence you wrote every month for the whole year. (This doesn't have to be the literal first day of the month--just the first post.)
3) Entertain us on your blog, link back here, and post a comment here with the link to your blog. (And if you're blogless, just remember the first sentence you spoke every month for the whole year and post it here. LOL)

Here's mine...

January 1
I know that living in Maine one should expect snow.

February 2
My family is very invovled in the AWANA program at our church.

March 3
A local friend asked that very question this week. (This post was titled Got Snow?)

April 1
A local friend of mine owns a computer store.

May 5
My SIL gave birth to this wonderful new baby boy on Friday.

June 2
Well, if it's not one of the boy's baseball games, then it's my hubby's softball games.

July 2
My in-laws own a camp on the upper section of Moosehead Lake.

August 1
A week ago today I was at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston thoroughly enjoying myself at the Women of Faith Pre-conference.

September 1
I know Labor Day is suppose to be a break from laboring.

October 1
Awhile back Mother Dear received a question on what snack foods to buy for homeschooling families, on the go or at home, and she inspired this week’s theme.

November 1
When I saw this picture on Baby Tea Leaves a few weeks ago, I SO wanted to win one for here.

December 1
Outside my window...darkness...the end of the day is nearing & I'm just now finding the time to sit down & blog. (from The Simple Woman's Daybook weekly meme)


  1. I love it; thanks for playing! I am always amazed at just how telling one sentence can be--how few words it takes to describe what is going on in one's life!

  2. ok, I will play but I'll have to do it tomorrow....stayed up too late watching movies AGAIN...

  3. This looks fun. I'll have to come back when I have another chunk of quiet time and participate. Our family has been staying up REALLY late with the girls home and then sleeping in - but I can't sleep in very well. LOL


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
