2010: The Best of Living Outside the Stacks

Ya know, I say this every year but I mean it this time, this year went by very quickly.  We’ve shared so much ~ you and I ~ you’ve been with me through job searches, college visits, temporary blindness and the other highs and lows that come with living.  So I want to take this time to tell you that I truly appreciate all of your love and support.   I pray continued blessings upon you and yours for a healthy and happy new year.

Here is a list of the best posts of 2010 from yours truly.  I look forward to sharing more with you in the new year.

January:  Sometimes a Fly is Just a Fly ~ Written after an American religious leader had stated that the devastation in Haiti was G_d’s judgement

February:  Family Ties ~ My younger sister called to tell me that she was being deployed to Iraq and it brought back memories of all the ways I used to torment her when we were kids

March:  I Have a Diagnosis ~ One of the scariest days of my life this year was when I woke up and realized that I’d completely lost my vision in one eye

April:  Women of Faith Wednesday ~  Sometimes being a mother is hard work and you really just want to run away, this is what happened when my “runaway day” came

May:  A Full Nest ~ A bird made a nest and laid some eggs right outside my front door, every week I took pictures and used them for my Wordless Wednesday posts

June:  6 Ways to Your Blog More Appealing to Companies ~ Every few months, some prominent “mommy blogger” will berate smaller bloggers for “giving away their services for free” but they weren’t offering tips on how to monetize their blogs so I offered a few suggestions which led to one of the bigger mom bloggers offering some helpful tips

July:  My Droid Hates Me and the Feeling May be Mutual ~ I upgrade my phone at every opportunity, so when I got the chance to get the Droid, I was so excited but I ended up HATING it

August:  Rolled Eyes, Broomsticks and Scenes from the Matrix ~ My mom had the uncanny ability to see around corners, behind her and through the back of my head

September:  If I Died, How Would You Know ~ Like many of you, I’ve made some wonderful connections online and I’ve often wondered how would I know if something happened to them or vice~versa

October:  The Banana Incident of 1978 ~ It’s no secret that I love monkeys but here’s the little known secret for why I hate bananas

November:  I Started Crying at the Reference Desk ~ While working at the library, Miss 17 called to tell me that she’d been accepted to Lock Haven University

December:  Things I Learn When My Kids Miss the Bus ~ One day my son missed the bus, so we ran some errands and grabbed a coffee and pumpkin muffin before I dropped him off

What are you most proud of this year?
