Oh yeah, it's Wednesday, the day after the presidential inauguration. Everyone keeps asking, (well, people on TV) "Where were you when Barack Obama became our 44th president?" I was at home, in my blue plad jammie pants, a giant red sweatshirt and my worn out Ugg boots that I should have gotten rid of a long time ago, holding onto a warm cup of coffee, with my little girl cat Luna at my side, watching the the inaugural ceremony in my living room. Under normal circumstances, I probably would have already gotten in a walk, run or work out, have been showered and going about my day. I had a flu shot on Monday afternoon and it gave me flu symptoms - achey, fever, felt like crap. I can't remember the last time I spent all day in my jammies due to a flu. I'm glad it was just a day thing. I'm feeling much better, thankyouverymuch. I did get up and made a celebratory chocolate cake with vanilla frosting. I was craving chocolate, and I didn't want to feel left out, you know, all the celebrating on TV. (Yeah, good excuse!) To tell you the truth, I would have been happy with a single Hostess chocolate cupcake, but I had the stuff to make cake. I knew that if I had my one piece I'd be over it, and I also knew the cake would be gone before this morning -- and it was, and not by me.
Where was I?
Apparently, getting the flu shot also causes temporary ADD.
President Obama's speech really made an impression on many, even on those who did not vote for him. It reminded me of how far we've come as a country, but how much further we have to go. I felt the speech was very honest, and the suggestions that it's going to take all of us to get the country back on track resonated throughout his speech.
"America. In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations."Sunday's song:
