It seems like now is the time when everyone likes to recap the year and make a list of hopeful goals for the coming months. I do have some big plans for the next year but I will save that for upcoming posts.
So now, let's take a look back, shall we, in the same way that we watch the VH1 top 100 of the year and say," 'Sing' by My Chemical Romance came out a year ago? It seems soooooo long ago."
In February I made a list of all the ways you can be environmentally friendly while having a kid.
In March I remade mashed cauliflower, with better success.
April saw everyone lose their motherfuckin shit in the face of the looming government shutdown.
In May I created a series of Household Binder, aka The Brains of the Operation posts which everyone seemed to love. I posted about Party Planning and Menus and Shopping Lists and Daily and Weekly Dockets and Important Account Numbers and Contact Lists and Cleaning Schedules and a Calendar and a Budget Worksheet and an Automobile Log.
Heading into June, I almost lost my motherfuckin shit as The Good Daughter turned two!
August made my ass get fatter (you knew I wouldn't keep up with the fat camp, didn't you?) when I made twice baked 'tater casserole.
In September I coped with the stress of my last semester in grad school with a sweet grilled cheese.
And I swallowed that bitch down with some copycat Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets.
In October I revealed that Target is crack for suburban chicks.
In November I talked about my CSA. Again.
And finally, in December, I generally slacked off while finishing up school and posted about this mushroom and leek gratin.
It looks like 2011 was the year when I didn't know when to shut the hell up and to date, was the most post-whoreish. I hope that is a good thing. I can't make any promises that 2012 will be just as exciting, but I hope it will be. I have so much to post about if only I can find the motivation.
Lastly, I want to thank everyone who has read anything on this little dog and pony show. Most of the time I imagine writing these words and sending them out into the great black void of The Internets. But the fact that I do have and continue to get readers amazes me everyday. Thank you guys for being awesome!
