Last Year’s Celebration

So last year I celebrated one holiday a day for the entire year. 365 holidays. I know, it is impressive. Please look through my archives for holidays that were celebrated!

It’s the last month. I’m a mixture of sadness and joy. I have poured my heart and soul and tears and blood into this project. I have held animals unwantingly. I have eaten lots of desserts. I have baked ugly cakes. I learned to make meringue. I have unlearned how to make pancakes. I drew dinosaurs. I was naked on July 14th. I have blogged from two different countries, various states and lots of cities. I have been featured in a few magazines. I have hopefully made some people smile. I think I might cry when I post on December 31.

I am pondering what to do next year. I would love your opinions and your ideas. I don’t want to stop posting. Although, the first week of January. I’m not posting. I’m taking a sabbatical from this blog. But for now, here’s the last list of monthly celebrations.

  1. Love perusing the upcoming celebrations. In case you didn’t know, your mother may be the world’s greatest living expert on Barbie. If not, I am. Are you aware that we had jillions of them and they were the best dressed Barbie dolls anywhere (really, they were RED CARPET dolls) because our Gram made them tuxedos and fancy ball gowns? And they had scandalous lives. Real Housewives of Orange County lives. And they were ultra hip — one of them them had a round sofa made out of a sand strainer and a crocheted doily, and this was back in the ’70s when round sofas were THE thing. In fact, I think the character Ginger (Sharon Stone) in Casino was based on the life of one of my Barbies. Just sayin’. Also, our Barbies were well-traveled. Once they all loaded up in the cool Barbie van for a road trip and drove a hundred miles an hour down the hill by our Gram’s house. Unfortunately, there was an accident and Malibu Barbie was ejected. She lost half a boob in the incident. Plastic surgery was in its infancy back then so she never really recovered. Tragic.
