If you've been a blogger for all of '06, this is a fun meme to recap the year with. As seen on Teri's blog, the rule says to use the first sentence of the first post from each month.

So instead, I will pick my favorite line from each month's first post. Links will take you to the full post.

My parents and I made the five-hour trek not to gaze upon the seat of our nation's government, but rather to gaze upon a 2005 Honda Accord coupe.
This weekend is all about cleaning up and cleaning out (even though it's not spring), but hopefully by Sunday I'll have a chance to put a few words and pics together and share them with y'all.
