A Personal List of “Bests”

2009 was a goodbad year for our family. I was going to call it bittersweet, but I like goodbad better, even if it isn’t a real word.

Here are some of the good things about 2009:

  • Best Book I Read: The Evolution of God
  • Best Movie I Saw: An Education
  • Best Laugh My Family Had: When I walked into the wrong building, with hilarious certainty, for the umpteenth time this year; my sense of direction is worse than it ever was—and it’s never been good!
  • Best Thing My Family Learned: That sometimes friendships end, and the world goes on, and there can be disagreement and change without rancor and despair.
  • Best Web Site I Discovered: HysterSisters.
  • Best Party My Family Attended: My best friend’s surprise fiftieth birthday party—if only because she was truly surprised!
  • Best Restaurant My Family Discovered: A real Italian tomato pie place that has BYOB and plays great music, like Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett and Vic Damone.
  • Best Child of the Year: My daughter.
  • Best Husband of the Year: My husband.

The above list is highly subjective (and completely true).

Happy New Year, Everybody!

    Susan – I like your observations and your invented adjective! It’s Thursday afternoon on 12/31, with a nice inch or two of snow on the ground, and I’m also thinking back on the past “goodbad” year — make that a “goodbad” decade! Fortunately the snow and the peaceful mood of the coming holiday reprise make me feel optimistic. Wishing you and your family good health in 2010 … and an expanding life!
