Inauguration Day

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!

  1. This should be a pretty exciting inauguration, although I'm sad that I will probably miss it, and have to catch the "highlights" later. I also never really cared about this sort of thing in the past, but I'm very interested to see the festivities now that I'm older!

  2. I am very excited about today and i too will be near a TV, which never happens during the day. I cannot wait for noon.

  3. No doubt his speech will result in multiple goosebumps!

  4. I totally agree with what you said, I'm hopeful but don't think Obama is some miracle worker. That still didn't stop me from choking up when he got sworn in.

  5. Well said. I share your thoughts and feeling precisely. The TV was on all day at our house. It's usually only on in the evenings after baby is in bed.


I'm a good listener...comment away!
