2008 was the year of the book at the Timmerman household.
March: Our only trip of the year, we went to Utah for my bro’s wedding
January to April: I was absolutely no fun, unless your idea of fun is watching someone slave away at the computer. Annie was a saint. I don’t think she complained once about the evenings and weekends I spent plugging away. I turned in my manuscript on time. Hooray!
November: WAIW? was reviewed in TIME Magazine. The issue was almost impossible to fine because it was the Obama-is-our-next-President commemorative issue.
Although it may have been the year of the book, another story stole the shoe – the pending arrival of baby Timmerman. We were hoping she’d arrive this month for a number of reasons, including Annie is sick of being pregnant, and a host of grownup reasons (as Annie puts it: “Goodbye tax deduction, Hello new deductible!).
2009 will be the year of the baby (unless something happens in the next few hours) and, because of that, I don’t think I’ve ever look forward to a coming year more.
So, Happy New Year! If you want to keep up-to-date with baby Timmerman’s arrival whenever that is, follow me on Twitter. I plan on tweeting the big event.
