A Perfectly Uninteresting Event

“Most modern calendars mar the sweet simplicity of our lives by reminding us that each day that passes is the anniversary of some perfectly uninteresting event.” ~ Oscar Wilde (Irish Poet, Novelist, Dramatist and Critic, 1854-1900)

That said, today is the anniversary of my blog; inspired, for some reason, by my cousin David. His birthday is May 7th, the very day I started my blog one year ago. Happy Birthday, Daily Rant! The singing may commence now...

I have written a post every single day. I have not missed one entry. A lot of things have happened in the past year, and because of this blog, almost every event has been documented.

Here are some of the things that have taken place:

I have been to all 50 states and 7 Canadian Provinces.

I know it’s one of the 50 states, but Dude, I went to Alaska!!

I lost weight (the amount I can’t say, since TFAAS spies are everywhere!)

I’ve made several new friends through blogging.

We entered a Big Honkin’ Truck Makeover contest and came in second!

Because we stopped so I could pee, I won $2500.00 at a casino in Nevada that I would have otherwise not gone into.

One cousin got married, another got engaged and a third adopted two gorgeous little twins!

My best friend and I had our first photo shoot and actually made money!

Ed and I spent over a week in Florida, participating in a Scrabble tournament and meeting other drivers at a company sponsored event. I had a great time and came away with new friends!

My Daddy died. An unexpected passing, which will forever leave me with a hole in my heart but which also will always force me to think of him.

I re-connected with some of my favorite family members; two amazing Aunts, two great Uncles and four spectacular cousins.

Was in New York for the Blizzard Of 2006! OMG, such snow I haven’t seen in years!

Cut my hair SHORT!

Saw a Burlesque show. Tassles, tits and feathers everywhere!

Visited all of my family and friends numerous times; in New York, Tennessee, Florida, New Mexico, Texas and Arizona.

Spent almost everyday with my Eddie and didn’t have one fight.

OMG, I can’t believe I just LIED to my readers!

And to bring this perfect year to a close and start off another year of blogging on a fun and exciting note:

I start Truck Driving School tomorrow!!!

In thirteen days, I will walk away with my CDL and be legally licensed to wield an 80,000 pound vehicle over the highways and bi-ways of this great country (pray for Eddie) and hopefully have some interesting stories to post.

Thank you all for being with me this past year. Please stick around and continue to read and comment; and bring some friends along to increase my readership!

Congrats on the first year, hope for many more.
When you get your CDL, please keep us informed of where and when you are driving.

So we know where and when to stay off the road.LOL
