One Year Ago Yesterday

I clicked “post” for the first time over at  In honor of that momentous occasion, I will publish this post one year and one day later and the stars will align and the 8 remaining planets will hum peacefully in their orbits.  It was 2:01pm August 30th and I wrote about milk.

The following is a list of some memorable posts from each of my 12 months of blogging:

August 2005 — The one about the milk, where I still call Magoo Big-O.

September 2005 — The one about garage sales, the one about the F-bomb, the one about poop

October 2005 — The first one about mullets, the one where I consider dressing Laylee as Matt Santos, Latino for president, the one where I almost light a match, the one in which I am vindicated

November 2005 — the one where I almost “sweep the leg”, the one about the dekes,

December 2005 — the one where I meet HER in real life, the one where I get a tardy, the one where I get to keep an award, the one where the x-ray guy diagnoses me with a mental disorder

January 2006 — the one where Laylee’s true identity is revealed, the one where I get a mullet, the one where I trust some advisors

February 2006 — the one where the root beer is confiscated, the one where my kids are differentiated by gender, the one where I whip out my yellow belt, the love fest

March 2006 — the one where I give myself some slack, the one where I realize I’ll never be Martha Stewart, the one that may be my favorite of all time

April 2006 — the one on waiting, the one where I crack myself up on video, the one about beef and tweens, the one where I compare my breasts to bike tires  

May 2006 — the one about the sweetness, the one about Piglet’s untimely demise

June 2006 — the one where I decide which is my “good” leg, the one from NASA

July 2006 — the one about the pirates, the one where people think I’m a whiner, the one where I hate automated phone answering systems

August 2006 — the one where I get rejected, the one where I won’t accept comments

Thank you for a wonderful year.  It’s been a blast for me.  Today was just another example of all the payoffs I get from blogging.  Your supportive comments and understanding continually amaze me.  This truly is the world’s biggest support group of strangers.

Please don’t feel like you need to leave me a Happy Blogiversary comment.  We already did that one.  I just wanted to share a stroll down memory lane.

  1. Although I love everything you write, DYM, the yellow belt one was a classic, along with the mullet- oh, and the NASA one- that was hysterical! Thanks for the trip- I never want to come home…

  2. Um, you’ve really only been blogging for a year?! Wow. I guess I thought you were so good you had to be one of those bloggers who’s been at it since they were actually called “web logs”. 🙂 Congrats on all your successes!!! (That was NOT a “happy blogiversary” 😉

  3. Ah, what a great stroll down memory lane. Yes, the tweens and the beef–I believe that was my favorite. I’m not just blowin’ sunshine, DYM…you really are the best there is.

  4. I remember those posts. They ruled the first time. I should read them again.

    You’re still here? Sheesh. You have more gumption than I ever imagined, not to mention the best readers in the world!

    That was a great stroll down your memories.

    Hooray! I just discovered you about a month ago (a little slow on the whole blog world thing)- so I was psyched to get a little sampling of the year’s best! I read them all and am now even more convinced that you must be the funniest person alive. I, too, was surpised you have “only” been at this a year-you’re awesome! Now…PLEASE tell me how you finally got Magoo to take that cup…we’re having some weaning problems in my neck of the woods very similar to yours! Congrats on a great year!

    Happy Blogday to you!

    I remember so many of those posts…

    I just read your last post, and I can totally relate… But I know things will get better soon. Someday I’ll be able to clean my house and not have it destroyed 10 minutes later.

    You’ll fit in soon.

    You are stinking hilarious! Happy blog anniversary!

    DYM, I read all of these archives. You made me laugh, cry, feel better about myself, and resolve to do better. You are awesome! Some of my faves: Sweep the leg- Karate Kid is my all-time favorite movie, Save yourselves- so true, and the one with the Texas Homecoming Queen costume- I also have 2 huge Homecoming mums in my closet, but I was never creative enough to turn them into a costume! Great idea! Keep it up, you’re doing great!
