Cloned from Wonderbliss who got it from Two Moms are Better than One: post the first sentence of your first post each month for the last year.

January - Hope everyone had a happy new year's celebration. I am not going to do my year in review. Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt. I think we all know it was the worst of times, it was the best of times.

February - "America is addicted to oil," Bush said.
Duh. I repeat, duh.

March - It has been a good week. Sammy is doing well. Keegan is back to his loveable/loving, well adjusted self.

April - I will post about the weekend which was wonderful. But I must share this news. Guess what was waiting for me in the mailbox when we got home today?

May - Actually we returned late Thurs night and I have had my hands full since then.

June - Don't be surprised if you didn't know that I am keeping bees this year.

July - I am working today. I figured if Keegan's daycare was going to be open I might as well work.

August - We just got our first response card back for the wedding.

September - Now your transponster can be an accessory too!

October - Today is Tom's birthday. He would have been 36.

November - Yesterday Keegan had a Halloween parade but I didn't get to go because I had a meeting at the exact same time.

December - Keegan moments from this week.
Sunday at Erika's:
K:Mom these grapes have seeds
Me:That's okay.
K:They're freaking me out.
