I can't recall being as excited about inauguration day as I am today. I was either too young or too cynical to feel much of anything in the past, but today is different. I really like Barack Obama, even though I'm not one of the people who acts like he's some kind of god or savior. He makes me hopeful for our country, not just domestically but globally, and so far, he seems sincere in his words and actions. Let's hope that doesn't change, the deeper he gets into Washington. So today I'll have the TV on, which is not normal for our household, and I'll be listening intently to his speech and getting goosebumps when he takes the oath on the Lincoln bible. I hope you enjoy your day too, whether it is celebrating our new president, or just going about your daily routine. The only bump in the road for me is that SoJo is battling a cold, and has been miserable all morning. In fact, I'm going to rescue him right now from his crib, where he's howling. Happy Inauguration Day!
