Bottom Ten of 2008

A recap of our worst moments of 2008:

10. Sears' conspiracy to take over the world--one rogue appliance at a time.

9. I get voted worst birthday party planner AND worst costume planner in the history of the universe.

8. Psycho neighbor runs over kids' backpacks...then offers them $12 for their trouble.

7. Numerous injuries occur from Glen's violence prone bike rack.

6. I get declared meanest Mom in the universe by my eleven year old daughter...TWICE!

5. I come to the stark realization that NO ONE looks at our preschool blog...ever.

4. Adam goes on a destructive , insult throwing , smirking streak.

3. Our red-eyed gerbil, Lucy(fer), takes the Twilight series a little too seriously when she joins up with Victoria, eschews her vegetarian lifestyle , and traumatizes our family by eating her mate, Fui.

2. Really, REALLY bad week when two people die, kids get sick, and people get mad at me for helping "wrong".

and #1 worst moment of the year...

1. Ellie sets a new family record...vomiting more times in the last year than the rest of my kids in their whole lives combined. Ugh!

Stay tuned for the Top 10 of 2008 coming soon on January 1, 2009 at 12:01am (EST)!

(Don't forget! There's still time to enter the contest [with new, improved clues])

I love it. The captions on the photos are classic. You always have the best posts.

Andie said...

LOL, did you photoshop red eyes onto your gerbil so she looks like Victoria or was that just the redeye from your camera? She definitely looks evil!

If I had half the creativity you have, I would consider myself cool. Maybe someday...

A delightful and delicious recap of an eventful year.

Great post! And thanks for making Gavin part of your top 10. Speaking of which, I still need to post what we did in preschool a couple of weeks ago. Really, I'm planning on doing it. Really!!!!

This is such a great idea. Can't wait to see your top 10 best for 2008.

Oh, and on a side note, my "word verification" for this comment is "barfa." How appropriate!

Lara said...

Just to answer your question Andie...our gerbil actually has naturally occurring red eyes. That photo is unaltered. We laugh now at how appropriate it seems.

Wow, I totally feel better about my 2008. Poor Ellie. . . .
