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!

    There was much more good reading than just these 12 nuggets in 2009!

    Good List…I bet it was hard to narrow it down!

    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!

    Happy New Year Eve Eve <3

    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?

    Crappy writing from you? I think not.

    Happy 2010!!!!
