I didn't need to be in the crowds on The Mall to appreciate what was happening today.
I actually enjoyed being at my parents house all warm and toasty watching on a big screen.
Maybe one of the things I liked most was that Obama has a team attitude. We, as a country, got into this mess together and we, as a country, will get out of this mess. He offered up one of the most important words in the english language....hope.
On a lighter front, we can talk about Aretha Franklin's chapeau. The girls luckily got to watch the inaug. at school. B's comment to her teacher was "Who is that singer? I don't think she is on Itunes". She's the Queen of soul for Pete,s sake!
I loved the color pop of Michelle's outfit. Laura Bush's was a little bland, but I suppose she didn't want to out do Michelle. How cute was it that Michelle brought Laura a little gift?!
And those 2 little girls. So damn cute! I keep thinking of the Disney show, Corey in the House. I suppose if you have never seen it, you will have no idea what I am talking about.....And the "kids" show last night was so great! My girls were thrilled that I let them watch the whole thing and stay up later than usual. Yeah, we'll be paying for that by Friday. The only singer we actually didn't understand was Bow Wow. What was up with his songs? You could say I am old that is why I didn't understand, but the girls didn't either. Phew.
I am sure I will watch all the recapping tonight and think of more things to say.
