The Best of 2009

My friend Scary Mommy posted a month-by-month list of her favorite posts from this past year, and I thought that was a brilliant idea, so I’m joining in. This is also, I figure, a pretty good way for any relatively new readers to get the general flavor of Suburban Scrawl.

Unfortunately, in looking back over my posts from 2009, I discovered that most of my writing is total crap, so I feel the need to issue an apology: sah-ree!

I did find a couple nuggets of goodness, however. So without further ado, here are MY favorite posts from this year:

January: Breaker One-Nine, What’s Your Handle?

February: When It Works To Be Unpredictable

March: Creative Parenting 101: Holding Onto Your Babies, One Illegible Page At A Time

April: Want To Go To NYC With Suburban Scrawl?

May: When It’s About the Destination and Not The Journey

June: Okay, it was a tie: It Only Took Twenty-Eight Years… AND There’s Just No Getting Rid of the Elephant In the Room

July: We Interrupt This Warm, Post-Blogher Glow For A Rant

August: The Dance

September: Lovely Times Three

October: She’s a Maniac…

November: Overconfident = Bad

December: Wherever, Together

Let’s all hope that 2010 brings us all lots of wonderful things, including some non-crappy posts here at the Scrawl!

    did you bring me home a doggy bag?

    What's good about your blog– is that it really doesn't matter what day you pop in… it's going to be amusing!

    To a new year of great posting and lotsa steak!

    Melisa starts with an M for Mmmmmmm GOOD! xx

    The beauty of the blogging world is we can write crap and cushion it with something worthwhile! Checked your favorites out. They were good, I especially liked March. Something about the kid's illegible writing is priceless.
    Have a great New Years!

    I felt the same way– some months were way better than others! A bunch of these are new to me— excited to catch up! 🙂

    I missed the Yom Kippur post (I think I was in the depths of swine flu hell) and I'm so glad you posted the link to it. I loved it! Those are some great life moments you shared.

    What do you mean most of your writing was crap? For shame!

    And I feel so left out (again) by not having a cool name I use to blog with. If only I could go back…. 🙂

    Hope you had a great anniversary! Did you finish the book by your deadline?
