I joined the world of twitter in April of 2011 and since then have sent 3,099 tweets. Now I'm no math expert but my calculator tells me that works out to about 5 tweets a day...
And having just read through all of my entries for 2012 I realize just how many were pretty much useless. It reminded me of the Louis CK quote about his 5 year old and how he could delete everything she had ever said to him and his life would be no different. Much the same could be said of my twitter feed.
That said...there were a few gems that either made me smile, laugh or recall fond memories:
(And yes...I posted more than 10. I was feeling rebellious.)

2yr old has taken to saying "whoopsie daisies" when she drops something. It makes me smile every time. #itsthelittlethings

Pretty sure my 5 yr old just out-ate me at all you can eat sushi. Can't decide if that's a good or bad thing.

Depressed about the game and alone in the house with 24 freshly baked chocolate cupcakes. Not good odds for daughters kindergarten class...

Drinking grape vodka, listening to old school rap ("It takes 2 to make a thing go right...") and getting beautified. #girlsnightout

Told youngest that my back hurt. She 'massaged' me with a book, her doll and a spoon. #geethanks

Took oldest to her first day of grade 1 today...she was decidedly unaffected when it was time for me to go.#seeyoulatermum #slightlyhurt

Most depressing strata meeting ever. When the best option is knocking down the building and selling the land that's bad right? #moneypit
