The non-existant retrospective

Everyone is doing some version of “2007 In Review” these last few days. I’m desperate to join the crowds but everytime I look back on the year, I just think: It was good. That seems to be lacking a little something, don’t you think?

I mean – I finished my first marathon. That’s pretty exciting. I got pregnant, had a miscarriage, and got pregnant again. I guess that’s something to pontificate upon. I was part of the Harry Potter frenzy – that was probably the most fun part of the year. The two weeks surrounding the movie and the book release. MrZ remodeled our kitchen. NikkiZ learned to curse. And LilZ has continued his unstoppable growth spurt. It’s been a great year, but I’m not really sure how to really break that down in anything other than an list. So – there was your list. You just missed it. Feel free to go back and read it again.

I think that’s why I blog – so I don’t have to actually remember what has happened in the past four years.

Here’s to 2008: May my blog keep better track of our ups and downs than my brain. Amen.

  1. I didn’t really do a retrospective, either. At least not a blogging one. Looking over my posts from the past year, none of them seemed retrospective-worthy.

    Here’s to a good 2008!

  2. I’ve been debating doing a retrospective, but I’ll probably skip it.

    I actually had to consult my blog archives to find noteworthy events to include in this year’s Christmas letter. Thank goodness for blogging!

  3. Best part of that whole post??? “my daughter learned to curse” HAAAAAAAAAA! Awesome!! Happy New Year Zoot Family!! Hope it is an even BETTER year for ya’ll!!

  4. this has nothing to do with the retrospective, but was just looking at your flickr photos and MUST know what kind of paints NikkiZ is using…Oliver got an easel for christmas and i’ve already bought 2 kinds of paints an dont like either set.

  5. I used to write really elaborate end of the year posts, but as the years go on, I realize that sometimes all you need are a few words to sum up the New Year. After all what are blogs for?
