10 Great Things That Happened This Summer

September 23rd, 2008 by Yano

You can either talk about personal things that have happened to you or great things that happened in general.

Once again, I’m pretty busy with work, but I’ll try to list a couple great things:

  1. Vacation - Cruise to Alaska…it was gorgeous!
  2. Watching my son in swimming class
  3. Political history has been made in a couple areas - first african american running for president, first republican woman for VP
  4. Got a new lens for my camera
  5. I’ve got a winning record with Cubs games attended this summer - 5 for 5
  6. Got a Wii :-)
  7. Went to visit my sister in Michigan for 4th of July for the first family road trip in a long time
  8. Had our 5th year wedding anniversary
  9. The US was awesome at the Olympics, and it felt like people were liking them again
  10. My son learned how to use a computer and mouse

  2. Ten on Tuesday… « MeltedMoment’s Weblog Says:

    […] Ten on Tuesday this week is “10 great things that happened this summer”. The weather has been becoming nice and autumnal lately… crisp and bright, rather than the rain and dull weather that accompanied the “summer” here in the UK! It seems a good time to look back at the summer […]

    We had our first temperature dip this week, with highs in the mid-high 70’s and lows dropping towards the 50’s.

    For me that signals the start of football season (which actually began about a month ago), and I did a different 10 on Tuesday as a result. Come check it out!

    I don’t have a list of ten things for this week. My summer was rather boring expect for our trip to the lovely state of Wisconsin! We spent 9 days there and I loved every minute of it!!! I can’t wait to get a job and move there.
